"Software Engineering in Industry and University for the 21st Century"

Since 1987 the Conference on Software Engineering Education and Training has been the primary international forum where industry and academia come together to exchange ideas on teaching and training individuals to meet the increasing demand for qualified software professionals.

CSEE&T is traditionally sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and supported by the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University (USA).

The CSEE&T 2003 will take place in one of the world's most exciting and friendly cities: Madrid, Spain; a city well known for its world-class museums, its exquisite cuisine, and its majestic avenues. But Madrid is more than just an important European tourist center. It is the nerve center of one of Europe's most thriving economies.

For CSEE&T 2003, topics to be addressed include, but are not limited to:

  • Software Engineering programs versus Computer Science programs with tracks in Software Engineering
  • Strategic contents of Software Engineering programs and differences among countries
  • Volatile parts of Software Engineering and its impact on Software Engineering education and training
  • Strengths and weaknesses of Software Engineering University programs
  • Innovative ways of teaching Software Engineering
  • Industry's view of Software Engineering education programs
  • The role of industry in Software Engineering education and training
  • Initiatives of companies addressing Software Engineering education needs
  • Government initiatives related to Software Engineering education
  • Software Engineering as an emerging profession
  • Definition of the body of knowledge in Software Engineering

Research and experience papers as well as proposals for panels, workshops and tutorials addressing these or related issues are welcome.

New: This year's CSEET will include a special session on Norm Gibbs' contribution to Software Engineering Education. The session will include papers, panels, and talks. If you would like to submit a paper, panel proposal, or abstract for a talk for this special session, please use the CSEET paper submission process, and specify that this is a proposed contribution for the special session on Norm Gibbs. Some example topics are Norm's contribution to SE curricula, the initiative for Master of Software Engineering programs, outreach to universities and their faculty members, vision for SE as a profession, and other professional activities, such as initiating the first CSEE. Nancy Mead (nrm@sei.cmu.edu) will be chair of this special session.

Proceedings Publishing

CSEET '03 proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society as previous CSEET conferences.



Please send all submissions using PDF or Microsoft Word format by October 1.
