                                Call for Papers
                                ---------------

ACM SIGSOFT 2004 brings together researchers and practitioners from academia
and industry to exchange new results related to both traditional and emerging
fields of software engineering. We invite submission of technical papers which
report results of theoretical, empirical, and experimental work, as well as
experience with technology transition.

Topics of Interest

We encourage submissions in any field of software engineering, including, but
not limited to:

* Component-Based Software Engineering
* Distributed, Web-Based, and Internet-Scale Software Engineering
* Empirical Studies of Software Tools and Methods
* Feature Interaction and Crosscutting Concerns
* Generic Programming and Software Reuse
* Requirements Engineering
* Software Analysis and Model Checking
* Software Architectures
* Software Configuration Management
* Software Engineering and Security
* Software Engineering Tools and Environments
* Software Information Management
* Software Metrics
* Software Performance Engineering
* Software Process and Workflow
* Software Reengineering
* Software Reliability Engineering
* Software Safety
* Software Testing
* Specification and Verification
* User Interfaces

Submission Guidelines

Paper submissions will be made electronically via the Web, at the conference
web site. Both an abstract and the full paper must be submitted by their
respective submission deadlines. Papers must not exceed ten (10) 8.5"x11"
single spaced pages using the ACM SIG proceedings formatting instructions,
which are accessible from the conference web site. Accepted papers must be
accompanied by a signed ACM copyright release form.

Paper submissions will be reviewed by the program committee for originality,
significance, soundness, and quality of presentation. Papers must clearly
present an original contribution to the state-of-the-art. Experience papers are
welcome, but they must clearly present general lessons learned that would be of
interest and benefit to a broad audience of both researchers and practitioners.

Papers must describe work that has not been submitted to or presented at
another forum. Any double submissions will be rejected without review, and the
other forum will be informed of the situation.

Important Dates (all in 2004)

March 24 --- Abstract submission due
March 29 --- Technical paper submissions due
June 4   --- Author notification

                               Call for Workshops
                               ------------------

Workshops hosted by SIGSOFT 2004 should provide an opportunity for exchanging
views, advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results on topics related to
software engineering research and applications. Workshops should not be seen as
an alternative forum for presenting full research papers. Workshops hosted by
SIGSOFT 2004 will last one or two days.

Important Dates (all in 2004)

April 15 --- Workshop proposals due
Oct 31-Nov 1, 5-6 --- Workshops
