* 7th International Workshop on Semantic Web Enabled Software Engineering
* (SWESE2011)
* http://www.abdn.ac.uk/~csc363/swese2011/
* (for previous workshops, see http://www.abdn.ac.uk/~csc280/)
*******Deadline: 12 Aug, 2011******
***Invited Speaker: Uwe Assmann****
* located at 2011 International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2011)
* 23/24 Oct 2011
* Bonn, Germany

Workshop Description

There has been more and more evidence that the usage of Semantic Web
technologies leads to improvements in both the process and product of
software development activities. The goal of the SWESE workshop is to
advance research on this important area. We believe that the informal nature
of the workshop, located at one of the major events of Semantic Web, will
lead to further exchange between practitioners and researchers working on
issues related to Semantic Web Enabled Software Engineering by providing a
forum for discussing the major challenges of the area and the different
approaches being taken to resolve them.

Intended Audience

While the intended audience for this workshop includes those with
experience or interest in Semantic Web languages, tools and linked data
aware software development,  it is
also crucial to have participation by those with expertise in
other areas such as software engineering, automatic software
engineering (ASE), knowledge based software engineering (KBSE),
UML/MDA and software/legacy modernisation.


Topics of interest to the workshop include (but are not restricted to):
•    Visions for Semantic Web driven software engineering
•    Tools developed or being developed for software engineering using SW
•    Integration or application development projects combining Software
Engineering techniques and Semantic Web tools or languages
•    Shortcomings with the Semantic Web with respect to Software Engineering

•    Uses, extensions and/or issues with ODM
•    Visions for SW driven software modernisation
•    Integration of UML, OO programming languages and Semantic Web languages

•    Integration of formal methods and Semantic Web languages
•    Software specification and Semantic Web languages
•    Software versioning control and Semantic Web
•    Software debugging and Semantic Web
•    Ontologies for software engineering
•    Ontologies for requirement engineering
•    Ontologies for software guidance, traceability and maintenance
•    Component discovery and ontologies
•    Feature modelling and ontologies
•    Metamodel engineering
•    Ontology reasoning for software engineering
•    Semantic annotations in software engineering
•    Transitioning legacy applications to ontologies
•    Semantic-based intelligent assistance tools for software developers
•    Lessons learnt and outstanding challenges for the usage of semantic
technologies in software engineering
•    Ontology-Driven Architecture: How to introduce Semantic Web technology
into mainstream development processes
•    Ontologies for supporting collaboration/coordination between developers
•    Semantic-based information push for software development process
•    Methods and tools for semantic-based event-driven interaction in
software development

Workshop Format and Attendance:

This will be a half day workshop, including a keynote presentation
and technical talks discussing competing and complementary
visions and state of the art for Semantic Web enabled software engineering.

This workshop is open to all members of the ISWC community, as
well as other communities identified  in Intended Audience above,
such as the Software Engineering community.

Submission of a paper is not required for attendance at the
workshop. However, in the event that the workshop cannot
accommodate all who would like to participate, those who have
submitted a paper will be given priority for registration.

We encourage those who plan to attend this workshop, to register
early in order to  help conference organisers with their planning
as well as insure that the workshop is not cancelled do to
projected poor attendance.
