other related topics are strongly encouraged. The scientific quality
of contributed papers will be ensured by a rigorous revision process
that will involve all members of the Program Committees.
A selection of the best papers in software engineering and knowledge
engineering will be published in a Special Issue of the
International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge
Engineering.  Papers must be written in English. An electronic
version (Postscript, PDF, or MS Word format) of the full paper
should be submitted using the following URL:

             (Please use Internet Explorer as the browser)

Manuscript must include a 200-word abstract and no more than 6 pages
of IEEE double column text (include figures and references).
Workshop papers should be submitted to the workshops directly.
