November 21, 2008: SECSE'09 Call for Papers

Second International Workshop on Software Engineering for Computational Science and Engineering Saturday, May 23, 2009 Co-located with ICSE 2009 - Vancouver, Canada Overview This workshop is concerned with the development of: A particular software application might fit into both categories (for example, a weather forecasting system might both run climatology models and produce visualisations of big data sets) or just one (for example, nuclear simulations fit into the first category and laboratory information management software into the second). For brevity, we refer to both categories under the umbrella title of "Computational Science and Engineering (CS&E)". Despite its importance in our everyday lives, CS&E has historically attracted little attention from the software engineering community. Indeed, the development of CS&E software differs significantly from the development of business information systems, from which many of the software engineering best practices, tools and techniques have been drawn. These differences include, for example: Recent endeavors to bring the software engineering and CS&E communities together include two special issues of IEEE Software (July/August 2008 and January 2009) and this current ICSE workshop series. The 2008 workshop [ ] brought together computational scientists, software engineering researchers and software developers to explore issues such as: This 2009 workshop will build on the results of the previous workshop. Similar to the format of the 2008 workshop, in addition to presentation and discussion of the accepted position papers, significant time during the 2009 workshop will be devoted to the continuation of discussions from previous workshops and to general open discussion. Submission Instructions We encourage submission of position papers or statements of interest from members of the software engineering and CS&E communities. Position papers of at most eight pages are solicited to address issues including but not limited to: The organizing committee hopes for participation from a broad range of stakeholders from across the software engineering, computational science/engineering, and grid computing communities. We especially encourage members of the CS&E application community to submit practical experience papers. Papers on related topics are also welcome. Please contact the organizers with any questions about the relevance of particular topics. Accepted position papers will appear in the ICSE workshop proceedings and appear in the IEEExplore Digital Library. Please observe the following:
  1. Position papers should be at most 8 pages.
  2. Format your paper according to the ICSE 2009 paper guidelines.
  3. Submit your paper in PDF format to
  4. Deadline for submission: January 19, 2009
  5. Submission notification: February 6, 2009.
