The 17th Australian Software Engineering Conference 2006 (ASWEC 2006) April 18-21 2006, Sydney, Australia

The seventeenth Australian Software Engineering Conference (ASWEC) will be held at the Australian Technology Park (ATP), Sydney, April 18-21, 2006. Since 1986, ASWEC has been the premier Australasian software engineering conference, providing a platform for presenting the latest and significant research findings and industry based experience reports.

ASWEC 2006 will bring together researchers, practitioners, and educators to share issues, novel solutions, and experiences in software engineering. The conference will also feature industry experience reports, tutorials, and workshops.

ASWEC 2006 invites software engineering researchers and practitioners to:
•Submit original, and unpublished results of finished or ongoing research, which promises to make significant contribution to the software engineering discipline.
•Propose tutorials and/or workshops
•Submit extended abstract on industrial experiences (Please see industry experience reports track)

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

• Software requirements engineering
• Software architecture design & analysis
• Service-Oriented Architectures
• Software components and reuse
• Product line software engineering
• Software quality assurance and control
• Object-oriented Approaches
• Formal methods
• Human-Computer Interaction
• Software engineering for secure, safe and reliable systems
• Software maintenance and evolution
• Software documentation management
• Software configuration management
• Software engineering tools and environments
• Computer supported cooperative work
• Software development processes
• Project management
• Knowledge management in software engineering
• Empiricism in software engineering
• Software engineering education
• Technology evaluation and transfer
• Software engineering standards
• Legal and ethical issues

Paper review criteria – the submitted papers will be reviewed and evaluated based on originality, significance, relevance, and presentation quality. Authors are encouraged to explicitly state the achievements and contributions of the research to software engineering research and practice.
Submission format - All submissions must be prepared in IEEE format (instructions at: ). Papers should not exceed ten pages including figures, references, and appendices and be in PDF format. Submissions of papers will be carried out electronically via the Web ( ). The proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society.

Industry Experience Reports Track

Objective - Industry experience reports should describe practical experiences in the area of software engineering that are of interest to other practitioners and researchers. Submissions should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication.

Submission - The initial submission consists of an extended abstract of 1-2 pages. These will be reviewed by a panel of industry experts and evaluated on the significance of the contribution, the clarity of the presentation and the adaptability of the concepts. The final submission can be in the form of a paper or presentation, and these will be distributed on a CD at the conference. One of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a delegate and present the paper at the conference.
