The 4th International Conference on Software Methodologies, Tools and Techniques (SoMeT_05) will take place on September 28-30, 2005, in (Tokyo, Japan). This event will continue and extend a coming series workshops on SOMET series to be arranged in Quebec(Canada) on 2006, and St. Petersburg(Russia) on 2007.
We invite you to participate in SOMET_05 to help build a forum for exchanging ideas and experiences in the field of new directions on software development methodologies, and its tools and techniques.

SOMET main contribution is to capture the essence of the innovations, controversies, challenges, and possible solutions of the software industry. To look on theories of innovative software, that can stimulate academic research on software science to initiate mutual connection between experience and theory. This workshop is an opportunity for us in the software science community to think about where we are and today and where we are going.

In this workshop may be, there will be also, some presentations on the results of Lyee International research project, oriented for new software generation techniques based on Lyee technology and sponsored by a major Japanese Industry on software methodologies and technologies.

The area of this workshop, will emphasis on but not limited:

Requirement engineering and requirement elicitation, and its tools,
Software methodologies, and tools for robust, reliable, non-fragile software design.
Lyee oriented software techniques, and its legacy systems
Automatic software generation versus reuse, and legacy systems, source code analysis and manipulation,
Software quality and process assessment,
Intelligent software systems design, and software evolution techniques,
Software optimization and formal methods,
Static and dynamic analysis on software performance model, and software maintenance,
End-user programming environment, User-centered Adoption-Centric Reengineering techniques
Ontology, cognitive models and philosophical aspects on software design,
Software design through interaction, and precognitive software techniques for interactive software entertainment applications,
Business oriented software application models,
Software Engineering models, and formal techniques for software representation, software testing and validation,
Aspect oriented programming,
and others software engineering disciplines,
The workshop program will be based on invited talks revised by the program committee members. Those invited technical papers will describe innovative and significant work in the research and practice of software science. The papers will be reviewed to check the quality of the papers, their presentation and their relevance to the workshop. The review will be done by the help of the program committee members. We will ask the respective authors of the accepted papers to make (if any) some modifications to increase the technical value of the papers presentation. So we appeal to the respective authors to collaborate as possible for such transactions to meet the suggested deadlines for proceedings publications.
