It sure would be nice to have some FoRK submissions to this conference. It is
peer-reviewed, with a surprisingly high-quality set of reviewers, but it isn't a viciously competitive conference.

California Software Symposium '98

** Call for Participation **

Featured Topic: Software Engineering in a Fully Connected World

October 23, 1998
University of California
Irvine, California

The California Software Symposium (CSS '98) is the eight in a series of
annual meetings on software engineering co-sponsored by the UCI Irvine
Research Unit in Software (IRUS) and the USC Center for Software
Engineering (CSE). The purpose of these symposia is to bring together
researchers and practitioners to share ideas on the state-of-the-art and
state-of-the-practice in software engineering through presentations and
panel discussions.

CSS '98 will focus in part on software engineering in a fully connected
world. We encourage submissions on this topic. Other topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

* Computer-supported cooperative work * Reuse and reverse engineering
* Documentation, training, and * Security
* Formal methods * Software engineering environments
* Human-computer interaction * Software process and workflow
* Metrics, measurement, and evaluation * Software system architectures
* Product and process management * Testing, verification, and
* Program understanding * Ubiquitous and mobile computing
* Requirements and design * WWW protocols, standards, and

Papers, presentations, and panels are invited on new approaches and
experiences. Emphasis will be on early dissemination of new ideas and
on experience with software techniques on actual projects. Experience
reports should report lessons that have general applicability.

Submissions are due by May 22, 1998. The program committee will review
all papers, presentation abstracts, and panel proposals for quality and
