opics of interest: The move to such massive-scale dynamic computing environments is changing software industry in multiple ways: new design and modeling methods are needed; testing of large-scale, data-intensive environments becomes ever more complex; virtualization, new middleware technologies, and new security challenges are growing in importance; and resource optimization and parallelism techniques should be adapted to the needs of modern software systems, which include power-aware, green systems. While a paper on any topic relevant to software practice and research will be considered, special emphasis will be given to papers reporting new results in software engineering, agile methods, cloud computing, embedded software development, and ways of exploiting new computing paradigms and architectures.
Submissions and Participation: Papers submitted to the conference should contain original contributions. SwSTE'12's international program committee will select the papers to be presented. The SwSTE'12 conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and will be included at the IEEE Digital Library. Submitted papers must conform to the IEEE two-column conference style. See the required template at: http://www.computer.org/portal/web/peerreviewjournals/author. Each paper is limited to ten pages. Papers are to be submitted electronically at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=swste2012.
