Issue on Knowledge-based Software Engineering in Science of Computer
Programming Journal, Elsevier (5-Year impact factor 0.810 according to Thomson
Scientific 2013 Journal Citations Report)

issue publication date:  March 2016



Knowledge-based technologies provide a
consistent and reliable basis to face the challenges for organization,
manipulation and visualization of the data and knowledge, playing a crucial
role as the technological basis of the development of a large number of
information systems. On the other hand, software engineering comprises
different processes and techniques that support the specification, development,
and maintenance of software. Knowledge-based software engineering is focused in
automating the software engineering life cycle, software engineering resources
which are shifting towards knowledge acquisition and the automated reuse of
expert knowledge for developing software artifacts. Knowledge in software
applications is becoming more significant because the domains of many software
applications are inherently knowledge-intensive and this knowledge is often not
explicitly dealt with in software development. This impedes maintenance and
reuse. Moreover, it is generally known that developing software requires
expertise and experience, which are currently also implicit and could be made
more tangible and reusable using knowledge-based or related techniques. Examples
of approaches that are directly related to this tendency are knowledge engineering,
ontologies, conceptual modeling, domain analysis and domain engineering,
business rules, workflow management, to mention but a few. 

Nowadays, enterprises handle different types
of knowledge that are often inter-related, and which must be managed in a
consistent way. For instance, software engineering involves the integration of
various knowledge sources that are in constant change. Therefore, tools and
techniques are necessary to capture and process knowledge in order to
facilitate subsequent development efforts, especially in the domain of software
engineering. With the use of new proposals on how using the knowledge in a multitude
of ways and in all phases of software development can be advantageous.


This special issue aims at exploring the recent
advances in the application of knowledge-based technologies in Software
Engineering area soliciting original scientific contributions in the form of
theoretical foundations, case studies, techniques, tools, and applications of
knowledge-based software engineering theory and practice.


The topics of this special issue include but
are not limited to:

• Knowledge Representation in Software

• Knowledge Acquisition in Software

• Knowledge driven Software Engineering 

• Case-based reasoning in Software

• Ontology Engineering in Software

• Semantic Interoperability

• Semantic Data Models

• Semantic Service Oriented Architectures

• Natural Language Processing applied to

testing, verification and validation, maintenance and evolution in software

• Knowledge-based methods for software

• Knowledge-based requirements engineering,
domain analysis and modeling

• Methodology and tools for knowledge
discovery and data mining



for authors 

Papers submitted must have not been published
previously or under consideration for publication, though they may represent
significant extensions of prior work. Manuscripts should be submitted online at (see the EES User Guide for Authors). Authors
should select "SI on KB Soft. Eng." in the EES platform when they
will be asked for type of submission. All submissions will be peer-reviewed
following the double-blind review process. The objective is to apply very high
standards of acceptance while ensuring fair, timely and efficient review
