The Seventeenth International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (SEKE'05) will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, July 14 to 16, 20005. The conference aims at bringing together experts in software engineering and knowledge engineering to discuss on relevant results in either software engineering or knowledge engineering or both. The conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering has for seventeen years 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. The conference in previous years was held in the United States, Argentina, Canada, Germany, Italy, Latvia and Spain. It is closely coordinated with the International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering, the premier journal in software enginering and knowledge engineering. Usually the best papers from the SEKE conference, after rigorous reviews, extensive revisions and further enhancements, will appear in a special issue of IJSEKE. This year, special emphasis will be placed on the transference of methods between both domains.

The Howard International House, situated at the heart of Taipei city near the campus of National Taiwan University and one block from a beautiful park, is the ideal place for conferencing and relaxation. Entrusted to the Howard Hotels for management, the Howard International House offers a comfortable environment combined with professional 5-star service at a reasonable fare. The conference will be held entirely at the hotel, except for the banquet that will be held at Taipei 101, the tallest building of the world. The hotel has graciously offered a special rate for SEKE'2005 attendees. A single room rate of around $60 US dollars per night will be available. Double room will be about twice as much. The Howard International House boasts three restaurants/cafes, an excellent indoor swimming pool, a whirl pool, health gym and indoor parking. Use of swimming pool, health gym and indoor parking is free for hotel guests. Information on other Taipei hotels is available on the Internet.


Banquet will be held in Taipei 101, the tallest building of the world. Participants will board a bus to Taipei 101 one hour before the banquet so that they have a chance to visit the excellent shops in the shopping mall of Taipei 101, including Page One, the largest book store in Taipei, and the famous Glass Factory created by a movie star and her director husband. After dinner, participants will board a bus to return to the hotel. Banquet is included in regular registration, but not included in student registration.
