Main ICSE website:

The aim of this workshop is to bring together the efforts in the
complimentary areas of software engineering with XML and engineering
software with XML. The first area addresses the use of XML and related
technologies for the construction of software engineering tools and
environments. The second area focuses on the exploitation of XML for the
development of a new generation of distributed software architectures and
middleware that might provide new degrees of flexibility in terms of
integration, security, and interoperability. The focus of the workshop
stretches from pure research on XML and related technologies to applications
and reports of industrial experience with mark-up languages and tools.

The intended workshop audience includes practitioners and researchers in
software engineering tools, software architecture, and distributed systems.
Because of the rapid evolution of XML related technologies and models, the
workshop will seek to broaden the understanding and stimulate interesting
collaborations. The workshop aims to identify problem areas in this domain,
and discuss a research agenda to address these problems.



The programme committee seeks original high quality papers related to all
aspects of use of XML technologies in software engineering context and
software engineering approaches to development of XML technologies.
Technologies relevant to the workshop include XML, XSL, DOM, XLink, XPath,
Schema, SOAP, Biztalk, XML Query, XMI, XPL, and RDF.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

   * Software Engineering with XML
        o Tool interworking
        o Process definition
        o Meta-Languages
        o Language Engineering
        o Repositories
   * Engineering Software with XML
        o Development, Formalization and Analysis of new XML related
        o XML and Web: rendering and processing
        o Use of XML in middleware development:
             + integration
             + security
             + heterogeneity
        o Meta-data
        o Enterprise Application Integration


How to Submit

Submissions must be original and must not have been submitted for
publication elsewhere. Submissions must be in English and should not exceed
4 pages in length.

Authors should preferably submit a URL to an XML document marked-up using
the DocBook DTD and rendered with a DocBook stylesheet. More information on
DocBook is available from Alternatively papers can be
produced in PDF. URLs or PDF files should be sent by e-mail to:

                               Cecilia Mascolo
                          Dept. of Computer Science
                          University College London
                     Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT, UK

Important dates:

Submission Deadline: 24th February 2001
Acceptance Notification: 15th March 2001
Camera Ready Submission: 1st May 2001 *To be confirmed*



Accepted position papers will be published as ICSE Workshop Proceedings. If
a sufficient number of high-quality papers are received to warrant a more
substantial publication, the organizers plan to edit a volume of Springer
Verlag's LNCS and authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit a
full paper.
