Software Technology is a core field of research within Computing
Science. It addresses the study and analysis of approaches to the
specification, design, development and evolution of software. With a
focus on program construction, it designs programming and language
formalisms and methodologies, constructs tools to support these, and
develops techniques for automated program analysis (e.g., type systems)
and software generation. The research methods used in t field range from
mathematical proofs to the development of practical development
platforms and the empirical evaluation of such platforms. Research
