SSBSE 2012
4th International Symposium on Search Based Software Engineering 
September 28 - 30, 2012 - Riva del Garda, Trento, Italy


We invite you to participate in the upcoming 4th International
Symposium on Search Based Software Engineering (SSBSE 2012) in Riva
del Garda, Italy. With tracks of technical and graduate student
papers, tutorials, keynotes by renowned researchers and panel
discussions, SSBSE is a great venue for undergraduate and graduate
students, faculty members, and industrialists to attend. As a delegate
at SSBSE 2012, you will learn about the theory and practice of search
based methods in a wide variety of areas within the software
engineering field.

SSBSE 2012 is co-located with
* The International Conference on Software Maintenance (ICSM 2012)
