The international workshop on software evolution, IWPSE-03, is organized
for the discussion of both the theory and the experience of software
evolution. It is a continuation of the previous five workshops: IWPSE-98,
IWPSE-99, ISPSE-00, IWPSE-01, and IWPSE-02. Software evolution, recognized
as an essential aspect of software systems, has become an emerging research
subject in recent years and is attracting the attention of researchers and
practitioners. The intent of IWPSE-03 is to provide a forum to discuss a
wide range of topics in software evolution, to foster the better
understanding of the nature of software evolution, and to accelerate
research activities on the subject.
Preliminary program can be downloaded in PDF format.

Types of contribution
We seek two types of contribution. Please mark clearly your paper as either FULL PAPER or POSITION PAPER.
A full paper may not exceed ten pages, and must include a
title, a short abstract, and references. All full paper submissions
will be refereed by the PC. Accepted papers will be published in the
workshop proceedings. At least one author must attend the workshop
(this is a condition of publication) and approximately 20-30 minutes
will be allocated for the presentation of the paper.
A position paper may not exceed four pages, and must
include a title, a short abstract, and references. The aim of a
position paper is to contribute a specific position to a research
discussion. Position papers are judged on novelty, sensibility of the
viewpoint, key insights, and relevant research results. Radical and
unconventional ideas are welcomed. Accepted position papers will be
published in the workshop proceedings, and each will be allocated 10-15
minutes for presentation.
The proceedings of IWPSE 2003 will be printed by IEEE Computer Society.
Submission of papers should be done electronically.
The paper submission site will be announced on April 15.
If you cannot submit your paper electronically by some reasons,
you need to contact to us firstname.lastname@example.org one week
before the submission deadline.
