ICSE 2010, the 32nd International Conference on Software Engineering, will be held from 2-10 May 2010, in Cape Town, South Africa, one of the most beautiful places in the world.  This workshop is a technical meeting leading up to ICSE 2010.  The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from all over the world, and especially from Africa, to share their knowledge about ICSE and exchange research interests and experiences from practice in the domain of software engineering (SE). This will open up many opportunities for the local SE community.

The two-day workshop will be held following the three-day IFIP Summer School. Top international SE experts will deliver presentations on research directions in specific areas. During the remainder of the workshop, SE researchers and practitioners will have an opportunity to present 15-minute statements of their interests, research achievements, and plans. This will be followed by an interactive discussion to seek common interests and potential cooperation in future research, especially the presentation of that research at ICSE 2010.

Taking advantage of this gathering of experts, the workshop will also provide a unique opportunity for those in government and industry to listen to advice and suggestions from leading-edge experts on how to catch up with and surpass the current advances of the world’s software industry, starting with postgraduate education all the way to top-level research.

As space and time are limited, only the early bird catches the worm.  Please register for your seat as soon as possible by responding to the following calls on the submission site on http://polelo.cs.up.ac.za/ISS2009 :


SHORT PAPERS: Short papers (up to four pages) describe research achievements and plans or practical experiences that can be potentially developed into a full paper to be submitted to ICSE 2010. The workshop committee members will review the submitted papers, select papers to be presented at the workshop, and return feedback to the authors.

POSITION PAPERS: Position papers consist of one page summarizing the researcher or practitioner’s current activity in the field of SE. Space permitting, all submitted position papers will be accepted.

PROCEEDINGS: All accepted short papers will be published in an ACM Proceedings with a ISBN and will be distributed at the Workshop.



Closing date for both submissions: 1 December 2008 !!!!! Extended to 12 December !!!!
Notification of acceptance: 15 January 2009
