IEEE Symposium on Application-Specific Systems and Software Engineering Technology (ASSET'99)

Co-sponsored by IEEE (pending) and the Center for Application Specific System and Software Engineering (CASSE) at the University of Texas at Dallas

The goal of this symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of software engineering as it applies to software development in specific application domains such as telecommunications, real-time embedded systems, and business information systems. The symposium will take place in the "Telecom Corridor" and aims to improve the dialog between industry and academia by providing a forum for state-of-the-art research and practice.


The main focus of this symposium is on application-specific system engineering and software engineering issues encountered in the design and development of complex systems. The symposium will consist of technical papers, panels, and tutorials. Participation from both industry and academia is sought. The topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

Experiences in software design, development, and validation for telecommunication, embedded, multimedia, wireless, and mobile systems.
Specialized systems and software engineering techniques, including specification, design, and development techniques for telecommunication, embedded, and transaction processing systems.
Integrated system design and assessment techniques that consider multiple systems requirements, such as security, real-time, reliability, availability, survivability, etc.
Techniques and algorithms in network security, real-time communication, network management, telecontrol, and high speed networks.
CASE tools for application-specific systems development.
Simulation environments for integrated design and assessment.
Quality of service analysis for various application systems.
Performance modeling and evaluation for application-specific systems.
Application-specific verification, validation, and assessment techniques.


Authors are invited to submit original papers to the symposium. The manuscript should contain no more than 20 pages (double spaced). Electronic submission is encouraged. A cover page has to be submitted for each paper submission.

Tutorial Proposal Submission

Tutorial Proposals are solicited for half-day and full-day tutorials. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: security, object-oriented techniques, multimedia and videoconferencing standards, and network standards.
