Software Engineering with Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning

Special Session in SEKE 2009

The 21st International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (SEKE'09)

Hyatt Harborside at Logan Int'l Airport, Boston, USA


The constantly evolving technological infrastructure presents a daunting challenge of the development and assurance of software systems with increasing size and complexity. Software engineers and project managers are striving to address various problems observed during the different phases of the software development life cycle. However, though related research has seen the development of some important and useful software engineering paradigms, their technology-transfer on a larger scale has been extremely gradual. The recent emergence of computational intelligence techniques in software engineering has opened doors for exploiting the currently developed and mature techniques of fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks, case-based reasoning, machine learning, knowledge-based systems, evolutionary computing, and expert systems (

This special session will focus on the current research trends in the fusion of the computational intelligence, machine learning, and software engineering domains. The topics of particular interest to the session include but are not limited to:

Submitted papers must not be previously published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authors must adhere to all submission procedures of the 21st SEKE’2009, including deadlines and paper format. In addition to submitting papers via the 21st SEKE’2009 web site (see above for address), authors are required to submit a copy of their paper(s) by email to Taghi M. Khoshgoftaar and Marek Reformat on or before March 23, 2009 (the deadlines will follow any changes in the SEKE deadlines).

All papers accepted for the session will be published in the proceedings of the 21st SEKE’2009. The session papers are considered as papers submitted to SEKE’2009, and they undergo the same review process. A selection of the session papers will also appear in a special issue of The International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (
