Call for Papers 
IEEE CS International Conference on Software
Science, Technology, and Engineering
June 12--13, 2012
Daniel Hotel, Herzlia, Israel or E-mail: [log in to unmask] 

Scope: We are on the threshold of a major paradigm shift in the way we
deploy and deliver software systems. Software delivery in the cloud and
the pervasiveness of social networks and multimedia mobile services
drive the demand for software technologies designed for massive-scale,
non-homogenous, continuously changing environments. To address these
requirements, modern software systems should be agile and scalable in
almost every aspect. At runtime, dynamically changing availability;
adaptive use of resources; mining of huge data sets; and flawless
execution are required. During development, agile methods; rapid and
continuous deployment; and consumerization of IT are becoming
increasingly important.

SwSTE'12 focuses on these trends and other topics in software engineering,
technology, and science. It provides a unique opportunity for researchers,
scientists, practitioners, and managers from Israel and abroad to meet and
share their ideas, results, and experiences.

Format: The two-day conference will include
*	keynote talks, presented by well-known software professionals,
*	focused track sessions, in which selected papers will be presented,
*	state-of-the-art tutorials,
*	a doctoral symposium, and
*	industrial track sessions, presenting case studies.
A best paper award will be presented at the opening session of the

Topics of interest: The move to such massive-scale dynamic computing
environments is changing software industry in multiple ways: new design
and modeling methods are needed; testing of large-scale, data-intensive
environments becomes ever more complex; virtualization, new middleware
technologies, and new security challenges are growing in importance; and
resource optimization and parallelism techniques should be adapted to the
needs of modern software systems, which include power-aware, green systems.
While a paper on any topic relevant to software practice and research will
be considered, special emphasis will be given to papers reporting new
results in software engineering, agile methods, cloud computing, embedded
software development, and ways of exploiting new computing paradigms and

Submissions and Participation: Papers submitted to the conference should
contain original contributions. SwSTE'12's international program committee
will select the papers to be presented. The SwSTE'12 conference proceedings
will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and will be included at the
IEEE Digital Library. Submitted papers must conform to the IEEE two-column
conference style. See the required template at:
<>.  Each paper
is limited to ten pages. Papers are to be submitted electronically at:

We look forward to your submissions and your participation.
