In recent Years, it has widely accepted that improved software development process will result in improved software products and, therefore, support information technology industry. Because of the difficulty in directly measuring product quality, interest has increasingly turned to process improvement as the key to reducing cost, schedule, risk and improving product quality that meet competition. To improve software development process, i. e. software engineering, it is rightly focusing on the adoption of industry-wide tools, standards and models as "best-practices" and their incorporation into strong institutionally internalized software engineering development.
The inherent nature of software to cut across many disciplinary areas and the software consolidation of knowledge, as opposed to the rapid creation of technology, over almost the past half century of computing had already resulted in a standardized body of knowledge that is both distributed and diffused.
Today's users and developers of software engineering standards and tools are presented with a complex array of choices, many standards and models have been developed and maintained by many different and multinational organizations all over the world, all approaching software engineering from different view points and context. Many of these standards, models and tools are inconsistent, overlapping and occasionally contradictory to each other.
The Egyptian Society for Information Systems and Computer Technology (ESISACT) dedicated its 5th Scientific Conference under the issue of "Development of Software Industry in Egypt", which was organized during the period 9-11 December 1997. Among the 15 main recommendations of this conference, those concerns that "Software industry is a strategic industry that affects the relative power of the nation and its national security", and "improve software engineering development tools and standards to enhance the quality of software industry in Egypt", etc.
The newly established Ministry of Communications and Information Technology in the late 1999, has been embarked on an ambition plan to encourage the Egyptian software industry as a primary industry in Egypt.
Therefore, this conference is to be organized towards improving software engineering tools and standards to support IT industry in Egypt.

This forthcoming conference aims to fulfill the following objectives:
1. Overcome the obstacles to use software engineering tools, standards and models.
2. Highlight the pressure of competition, litigation and regulation through the improvement of software engineering processes.
3. Encourage the adoption of proper software engineering development tools, standards and models.
4. Abreast the software developers about the exposition of fundamental and unifying principles, scope, and relationship of existing standards that would ease their jobs.

The conference intends to investigate the following themes:
1. Overview concepts and state-of- art for software engineering tools and standards.
2. Specify some of the important tools and standards that are relevant to improve software development industry in Egypt.
3. Indicate the recent endeavors of the professional development for software engineering education and training.
4. Discuss issues relating to software engineering security, process models, management, etc.
5. State the role of the nation public and private sectors to encourage and support the development and adoption of software engineering tools, standards and models.

Interested scholars, researchers and practitioners are invited to submit abstracts, full-length research papers, presentation reports and research in-progress reviews to be presented in the conference's sessions that highlight the conference deliberation and ideas regarding its themes. Therefore, presenters have a wide choice of papers, abstracts, etc. to innovative demonstration work to be followed later.
These abstracts, papers and reports are identified as follows:
• Abstracts of no more than one page in length supporting the full-length papers and reports or in lieu of them for those not desiring publications of a complete paper.
• Full-length research papers and presentation reports, which make up the core of the conference program sessions. Full-length papers and reports should not exceed (10) single spaced pages or about 10000 words.
• Research in-progress papers may be submitted as short papers (3-4 pages) or abstracts up to (1 page) describing an on-going research project or study.
Paper proposals must include:
• Full identification of the presenter(s), including name, job title, institution or organizational affiliation, address, phone No., Fax No., E-mail address and the title of the proposed paper.
• A separate abstract, clearly, stating the specific thesis of the paper and how it relates to the conference specific theme. The abstract is to be written in both Arabic and English languages.
• The paper or report itself, single-spaced, not to exceed 10000 words.
• All abstracts, papers and reports are to be submitted electronically using MS Words or equivalent.

All accepted submissions will be published in the proceedings of the 11th scientific conference for information systems and computer technology after the conduct of the conference itself.
Time Table for Paper Submission:
• Abstract Submission: Up to 15 October 2005.
• Paper Submission for Review Committee Appraisal: Up to1 January 2006.
• Final notification of Acceptance: Up to 15/1/2006
