WORKSHOPS

SEKE'2003 has two themes. The first theme is software engineering decision support, data mining, and knowledge engineering techniques to support software engineering. The second theme is web engineering and design issues for the web such as synchronization, V&V, searching and spatial reasoning. Five workshops will be organized around these two themes. You can contact the organizer of a workshop to join as a PC member for that workshop.
