Academic Resource Network for Engineering and ICT Australia


Established in 1986, ASWEC is a leading technical forum for the exchange of peer-reviewed research outcomes and industry best-practice in software engineering. It attracts a wide range of participants including software engineering researchers, practitioners and educators for across Australia, its regional neighbours, and from other international locations. The overall programme will provide numerous opportunities for academic and industry participants to interact with and learn from each other. http://www.aswec2014.org/

The scope of software engineering research needs to be expanded and more interaction with other communities will benefit the research going forward. The theme for the next ASWEC is “The Future of Software Engineering”. We are particularly seeking contributions that help redefine the future scope of software engineering from both the traditional software engineering community and other fields. Topics of interest for ASWEC14 include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Agile Methods
  • Computer Supported Cooperative Software Engineering
  • Configuration Management
  • Dependable and Secure Computing
  • DevOps and Operations (esp. in Distributed/Cloud Environment)
  • Domain-specific Models and Languages, and Model Driven Development
  • Domain-specific Applications for Logistics, Finance, Health Care, Manufacturing, Defence and etc.
  • Empirical Research in Software Engineering
  • Engineering Big Data and Analytics Applications
  • Engineering Cloud Applications
  • Engineering/operating Large-Scale Distributed Systems
