Twelfth International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering

July 6-8, 2000

Hotel W Chicago Lake Shore
644 N. Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL, USA
Tel: 312-943-9200 Fax: 312-943-8077

Organized by

University of Pittsburgh


SCOPE

For the past eleven years, the Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering has been providing a unique, centralized, forum for academic and industrial researchers and practitioners to discuss the application of either software engineering methods in knowledge engineering or knowledge-based techniques in software engineering. Preference is given to papers that emphasize the transference of methods among both engineering disciplines; however, outstanding papers on software engineering or knowledge engineering alone are also solicited.

SEKE2000 will feature four half-day tutorials on July 5, followed by a three-day technical program consisting of parallel tracks which will include paper sessions, panels, and workshops. An exhibition of software engineering and knowledge engineering tools is planned. Paper presentations will be approximately 20 minutes each with 5-10 minutes for questions and discussion. Submissions of proposals to organize a session, a panel or a tutorial are also being solicited.

Suggested Topics of Interest

Papers will be organized according to the following tracks:

Session, Panel, Tutorial Proposals

Sessions, Panels and Tutorial proposals should include a two or three-page summary containing the title, proponents, contact information, abstract, description and the background of the proponent. Four copies of the proposal should be sent before December 1, 1999 to:
