The Second Argentine Symposium on Software Engineering (ASSE 2001) will be part of 30th Argentine Conference on Computer Science and Operational Research (JAIIO 2001). The full JAIIO 2001 Conference will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina on September 10-14, including symposia in other relevant areas.

ASSE 2001 will bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss new ideas, problems and experiences in the field of Software Engineering and Database Technology.

We invite submissions of technical papers which report results of theoretical, empirical, and experimental work, as well as experience with technology transition, in the wide spectrum of software engineering.

Submission of papers related, but not limited to, the following topics are encouraged:
  • Object-oriented software engineering
  • Component-based software engineering
  • Requirements Engineering
  • Software Architectures
  • Software Engineering Tools and Environments
  • Software Metrics
  • Software Process
  • COTS Integration
  • Distributed, Internet-scale and Web-based Software Engineering
  • Empirical Studies of Software Tools and Methods
  • Software Reengineering
  • Software Reuse
  • Software Safety
  • Specification and Verification
  • User Interfaces
  • Design Patterns
  • Database technology
  • Theory and Formal Software Engineering Methods
  • Education in software engineering

The symposium will feature invited talks, short tutorials, paper and poster sessions, and panels presenting both mature work and new ideas in research and applications.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions can be full papers addressing any topic on software engineering or short papers describing ongoing research projects at academic or development environments. Although the languages of the Symposium are both English and Spanish, to be included in the Proceedings papers must be written in English. Papers submissions will be reviewed by an international program committee using criteria appropriate to their category. The submitted papers will be evaluated based on their originality, relevance, technical quality and presentation. Papers may be accepted for presentation as talks, as part of a panel, or as posters. At least one of the authors of an accepted paper is required to register for the symposium and present the paper.

The symposium proceedings will be published by SADIO and the best papers will be selected for publication in a special issue of The Electronical Journal of SADIO.

Papers must be written in English, and must not exceed ten (10) 8.5"x11" single spaced pages using a font 10-point or larger. Short papers should not exceed 5 pages.

Camera ready papers should comply with the LNCS format guidelines. An electronic copy of the paper, in PDF or portable Postscript format with no encoding, condensing or encapsulation, must be emailed to the Symposium account
