CSEE&T 2017 Call for Submissions

The 2017 IEEE Conference on Software Engineering Education and Training (CSEE&T) is taking place in Savannah, Geor-gia, in November 2017. Since the first CSEE&T, software engineering education has changed a great deal. In 1986, software engineering education was largely undertaken by industry, with just a few academic software engineering programs in place. Since then, software engineering degree programs have emerged at all levels, and we are seeing increased atten-tion to software engineering specialty areas. Software engineering professionalism initiatives resulted in the certification and licensing of software engineers in a number of countries worldwide.

On the industry side, we are seeing an upheaval in software engineering as we know it. Innovations such as cloud compu-ting, autonomous vehicles, drones, bioengineering, and other initiatives have made for a rapidly changing landscape. Top-ics such as software assurance, safety, and reliability have become important knowledge areas. As educators, we are chal-lenged to keep up with the emerging trends. We are in a global economy with a software supply chain that can extend across many countries and regions, and each one has its own regulations and laws about safety, security, and privacy. Software engineers change jobs frequently, so the value of in-house training is not as clear as it once was. At CSEE&T 2017, we will focus on the changes taking place in the field, discuss our response to them, and form a vision of how to move forward to meet the ever-increasing demand for qualified software engineers.


Journal of Systems and Software Partnership!

The CSEE&T 2017 has teamed up with the Journal of Systems and Software (JSS) to devote a special of the JSS to the select papers from this year's conference. All submitted papers will be considered for the special issue. Priority will be given to the high-impact papers that address education in the areas of secure software, agile software engineering, gamification, and industry/university collaboration. The authors of selected papers will be notified shortly after the authors' final notification and will be asked to extend their papers to full-text papers appropriate for publication in an archival journal. The special issue of JSS will be guest edited by Hossein Saiedian (University of Kansas, USA) and Hironori Washizaki (Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan). Tentative dates are as follows:
