Visual Environments, Languages, and Tools for Software Engineering (VELT-SE)

Special Session in VLC 2010 International Workshop

The 16th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS 2010)

Hyatt Lodge at McDonald's Campus, Oak Brook, Illinois, USA October 14 to October 16, 2010
Organized by Knowledge Systems Institute, U.S.A.

The ever increasing demands for high quality software and the growing complexity of the modern software processes require new approaches, techniques, and tools for software development and evolution. As shown over the years, visual languages, notations, environments, and tools could be particularly powerful in support of numerous software engineering activities. This session will be a forum for participants from industry and academia to exchange ideas and research results for visualization issues in software engineering. The VELT-SE session will particularly welcome contributions at the junction of theory and practice disseminating research with immediate impact on practical applications.

This is the second special session held as part of the Visual Languages and Computing (VLC-2010) Workshop, October 12-14, 2010 Hyatt Lodge at McDonald's Campus, Oak Brook, Illinois, USA. More details about the VLC workshop can be found at:
