Subject: Second Call for papers of the Spanish Cognitive Linguistics Association (AELCO/SCOLA)


Val�ncia, 15th - 17th May 2002

The Spanish Cognitive Linguistics Association (Asociaci�n Espa�ola de
Ling��stica Cognitiva-AELCO/SCOLA) is member of the International Cognitive
Linguistics Association. The Association originated as a forum for researchers
working on various topics in Cognitive Linguistics (e.g. prototypes, 
metaphorization, mental imagery, cognitive models, etc.). This approach to
language includes a whole range of theoretical and descriptive proposals that
see language as intimately tied to the interaction of cultural, psychological,
communicative, and functional constraints, and which must be analyzed in the
context of conceptualization and mental processing.

Previous meetings have been held in Alacant (1998) and Madrid (2000). The III
AELCO/SCOLA Conference will take place at the University of Valencia (15t-
17th May 2002).

Message 2: IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance 2002 Call for Papers

Date: Mon, 10 Dec 2001 10:24:30 +0100 (CET)
From: icsmif <>
Subject: IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance 2002 Call for Papers


IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance 2002
		 Sponsored by IEEE
 ICSM-2002, Montreal, Canada, 3-6 October 2002

	 Call for Papers

 Theme: Maintaining distributed heterogeneous systems

ICSM is the major international conference in the field of software and
systems maintenance, evolution, and management. This year's theme
elaborates on last year's theme of "systems and software evolution in the
era of the internet". Standalone legacy applications of yesterday and
novel applications using today's technologies are rapidly becoming
integrated as part of enterprise-wide and industry-wide systems. The need
for rapid integration has led to many distributed heterogeneous systems
that are very challenging to maintain and evolve.

ICSM 2002 will address these new scenarios and the major challenges on
maintenance and evolution. The focus of the conference will be on the new
challenges that heterogeneous systems pose for software maintenance, and
the new opportunities for researchers and practitioners. A main goal of
ICSM is to promote interaction between researchers and practitioners. ICSM
2002 will bring together researchers, practitioners, developers and users
of tools, technology transfer experts, and project managers.

Jon Pincus (Microsoft) will describe how Microsoft handles software
enhancements. Other outstanding Keynote speakers are being arranged. Past
conferences have had Parnas, Rombach, McCabe, and Jacobson.

ICSM-2002 will offer technical presentations and demonstrations from
academia and industry. We are particularly interested in exchanging
concepts, prototypes, research ideas, and other results that could
contribute to the academic arena and also benefit business and the
industrial community. ICSM 2002 will be participatory, with working
collaborative sessions and presentations of industry projects. 

The Conference will be held in conjunction with: 

 WESS -- Workshop on Empirical Studies of Software Maintenance.
 SCAM -- Source Code Analysis and Manipulation 
 WSE -- Workshop on WEBsite Evolution

Topics of interest include but are not restricted to the following aspects
of maintenance and evolution:

- Methods and theories	 - Maintenance and/or productivity metrics
- Organizational frameworks	 - Preventive maintenance
- Design for maintenance	 - Tools and environments
- Life cycle and process control - Models/methods for error prediction
- User interface evolution	 - Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS)
- Third party maintenance	 - Freeware and open source applications
- Program comprehension	 - Software and system visualisation
- Knowledge based systems - Measurement of software
- Formal methods - Legal aspects and standards
- Software reusability - Internet and distributed systems
- Empirical studies - Testing and regression testing
- Remote, tele-work - Version and configuration management
- Processes and strategies - Management and organisation
- Co-operative applications - Source code analysis and manipulation
- Processes and strategies - Impact of new software practices
- Programming languages - Reengineering and reverse engineering
- Multimedia systems

RESEARCH PAPERS: Research papers should describe original and significant
work in the research and practice of software maintenance and evolution.
Case studies, empirical research, and experiments are particularly welcome.
We also welcome papers that present leading edge and novel ideas in
maintenance. Papers must not exceed 5000 words (10 pages IEEE style) in
length, in English. To encourage strong submissions a prize will be
awarded for the "Best Paper as Submitted". This Prize is offered by John
Wiley & Sons, the publishers of the Journal of Software Maintenance and
Evolution. The Program Committee will select the winner and a formal
presentation of the Prize will be made in Montreal at ICSM 2002.

FAST TRACK PAPERS: Fast Track papers should describe on-going research
activities, or summarize the experience in software maintenance and
evolution. Papers must not exceed 4 pages, IEEE style, in length, in
English. Accepted fast-track papers will be included in a dedicated
section of the conference proceedings.

DISSERTATION FORUM: We welcome submissions of young researchers that have
delivered their dissertation (Masters or Ph.D.) in the last three years.
An award will be issued for the best submission. Four page summaries of
accepted dissertations will be included in the conference proceedings and a
special forum section will be organised at the conference.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS: Proposals for presentations of Industrial
Applications are welcome. These can be state-of-the-art descriptions,
experience reports and survey reports from real projects, industrial
practices and models, or tool demonstrations. A dedicated sub-committee of
the program committee will review Industrial Application proposals and a
1-page summary of accepted proposals will be included in the conference

TUTORIALS: Tutorials should present software maintenance and evolution
topics of interest to practitioners. Tutorials may be full day or half-day
in length.

SUBMISSION STYLE: PDF and/or Postscript electronic submission only. Papers
longer than 15 pages or 6000 words will be returned to the authors.
Acceptance notification will occur June 1, 2002.
