Special Session Title: Automated Software Engineering Technology
This Special Session includes the study of techniques for constructing, understanding, adapting, and modelling software artifacts and processes. Both automatic systems and collaborative systems are within the scope of the journal, as are computational models of human software engineering activities. Knowledge representations and artificial intelligence techniques applicable to automated software engineering are of interest, as are formal techniques that support or provide theoretical foundations.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
specification and design representation schemes, both formal and informal; descriptions and models of the development process; tools and environments to support software development; cognition in software development, including studies of specifiers, designers and implementors, and cognitive properties of representation schemes, programming and programming languages; software development methods, analysis and validation; requirements elicitation, acquisition and formalization; system rationale; software quality and metrics; software reuse and adaptation; animation and execution of specifications and designs; domain modelling and analysis; software visualization; software object management; development of user interfaces; group and team work in software engineering; development of distributed, real-time, embedded and composite systems; systems integration; software evolution and maintenance; system testing; reverse engineering and program understanding; documentation and program explanation.
