 Call For Papers - WCRE '98

                          Call for Papers
                              for the
           5th Working Conference on Reverse Engineering

                              WCRE 98

                          12-14 October 1998
                        Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
                      (co-located with ASE '98)

The Working Conference on Reverse Engineering (WCRE) is the premier
research-oriented conference dedicated to the theory and practice of
recovering information from existing software and systems.  The purpose
of WCRE is to explore innovative methods of extracting the many
kinds of information that can be recovered from software, software
engineering documents, and systems artifacts, and to examine innovative
ways of using this information, for example, to aid in system renovation.

To enable meaningful discussion, attendance at WCRE 98 will be limited
to 100 active researchers in Reverse Engineering and related fields.


Topics of WCRE 98 include (but are not limited to) the following
research directions in reverse engineering:

* Experience reports (successes and failures) on reverse engineering efforts
* Integration of reverse engineering and forward engineering
* Data re-engineering
* Year 2000, Euro reengineering and related issues
* Techniques, tools, and enabling technologies for system reengineering,
  reverse engineering, renovation, and migration
* Code-based management systems to support reverse engineering
* Comparison and analysis of reverse engineering techniques and tools
* The use of formal methods in reverse engineering
* Domain modeling to support reverse engineering
* Program understanding
* Wrapping and interfacing legacy systems
* Reverse engineering from binaries rather than source


Papers describe original and significant work in the research and practice
of reverse engineering.  Papers should be limited to 10 proceedings pages,
at most 6000 words.  Papers must not have been previously published nor
have been submitted to, or be in consideration for, any journal, book, or
other conference.  All papers should explicitly state the goals of systems
or approaches described and should use accepted, standard terminology
(ref. IEEE Software, January 1990 or http://www.*-*-*.com/ ).

WCRE 98 is strongly encouraging electronic submissions.  Papers should be
in IEEE proceedings format sent as a single postscript file.  Contact one
of the Program Chairs before sending other file types.
Email submissions to:

Guidelines for producing the IEEE proceedings format can be found at
and http://www.*-*-*.com/
(There is an IEEE proceedings format{*filter*}style file available at
http://www.*-*-*.com/ )

All submissions must be viewable and printable with Ghostview.  

Non-electronic submissions can be mailed to either of the program chairs
at the addresses listed below.


Deadline for papers:        May   8, 1998
Notification of acceptance: June 26, 1998
Camera ready copies due:    July 17, 1998


WCRE 98 is sponsored by:
  *  IEEE Computer Society TCSE Committee on Reverse Engineering
  *  Reengineering Forum
with assistance from a variety of sponsors to be announced later.


Proceedings of the Working Conference will be published by IEEE
Computer Society Press. Earlier WCRE proceedings are also available


Attendees should note that WCRE 98 will be co-located and will have
overlapping sessions with the 1998 Conference on Automated Software
Engineering (ASE 98).  See http://www.*-*-*.com/ ~ase98/ for more
information on ASE 98.
