Agenda          Presentations

Conference tracks:
Component-Based Software Engineering Track
Multimedia and Telecommunications Track
Software Process and Product Improvement Track
Euromicro Symposium on Digital System Design

Component-based software engineering (CBSE), is an emerging development paradigm that promises to accelerate software development and to reduce costs by assembling systems from prefabricated software components. Designing, developing and maintaining components for reuse is, however, a very complex process, which places high requirements not only for the component functionality and flexibility, but also for the development organization. CBSE covers many software engineering disciplines and different techniques which still have not been fully defined, explained and exploited either from theoretical or practical points of view. 

The aim of the conference track is  to bring together practitioners and researchers from academia and industry to improve the theories, technologies, and processes in component-based software development. We encourage submissions of both theoretical nature and experience reports from academia and especially from industry. Suggested areas of interest include, but are not restricted to:

Component Development Processes Component Models and Technologies
Components and Reuse Development Environment and Tools
Component-based Requirements Engineering Component Configuration Management
Component Design, Implementation, Testing Components for Real-time Systems
Building systems from components Component-based embedded systems
Component Specification COTS (Commercial off the shelf)
Component Evaluation Case Studies 
Component-based Architecture Component-based  Software Metrics
Component compositions CBSE Organizational Issues
Software Product-line Approach CBSE and Aspect-oriented programming


The accepted paper should follow two column IEEE conference format. To get format  description and templates follow http://www.idt.mdh.se/ecbse/2002/ecbse-mansubmit.htm  link.

Papers should not exceed 4000 words. An abstract of up to 200 words should be included. If accepted, the paper must be made available in  Camera-ready forms by June 15th, 2002, and it must be personally  presented at the EUROMICRO 2002 Conference by the author or one of the  co-authors.

The proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society. 

The Track Component-based Software Engineering is an integral part of the EUROMICRO 2002 Conference.
