5th International Conference on Empirical
Assessment & Evaluation in Software Engineering
Keele University, Staffordshire, UK.
April 9th –11th 2001
Call for Participation
Many academics and industrial practioners believe that evaluation has a
vital role to play in software engineering. As well as evaluating at the
application and component levels, software engineers need to be concerned
with the evaluation of development processes, engineering methods and supplier
This conference, the fifth in the series, is again seeking papers that
describe research or practical experiences with empirical assessment
and evaluation in software engineering. We particularly seek papers that
address the evaluation and assessment of emerging technologies (e.g. component-based
systems, application services provision, web-based systems) and in the
context of emerging application domains (e.g. e-business). The developments
introduce new technical, social and economic issues and hence pose new
challenges for the evaluation community.
Wohlin will be the opening Keynote Speaker and Dr
Kaled El Emam will provide the closing Keynote. A tutorial will be
given on the 9th of April by Dr
Barbara Kitchenham on The Use of Surveys in Software Engineering.
In addition a panel session on Guidelines for Empirical Studies
chaired by Dr Shari Lawrence-Pfleeger is a must for any Empirical Researcher.
The list of technical papers at this years conference covers a range
of topics from the assessment of comprehensibility
of Z specifications to that Liminal Moment (You have to come to
the conference to see what that means).
The experience papers cover topics such as the difficulty of obtaining
industrial collaborators for empirical assessments, the assessment of software
measurement processes as well as case studies from a number of companies.
All participants are invited to provide posters describing their evaluation,
experiences, needs and problems. Practitioners and research students who
need to evaluate the effectiveness of their own work and the work of others
are encouraged to take this opportunity to elicit comments from those who
are studying evaluation techniques and practices.
