                         Call for Papers

The Working Conference on Reverse Engineering (WCRE) is the 
premier research conference on the theory and practice of 
recovering information from existing systems.  Now preparing 
to hold our tenth meeting, we explore innovative methods of 
extracting the many kinds of information that can be recovered 
from the data, software, and other components that comprise 
systems, and examine innovative ways of using this information 
in system understanding, renovation, and system reengineering.
Topics discussed at WCRE include but are not limited to:

* Software maintenance & evolution   * Program analysis and slicing
* Decompilation & binary translation * Refactoring
* Program comprehension              * Program transformations
* Software architecture extraction   * Cluster and concept analysis
* Requirements reengineering         * Object identification
* Software migrations                * Browsing & searching legacy sys.
* User interface reengineering       * Software visualization
* Web-enabling legacy systems        * XML, meta-data, and data-exchange
* Web-site reverse engineering       * Reverse engineering tool support
* Transitioning to product lines     * Documentation generation
* Data reverse engineering           * Formal methods for rev. eng.
* Experience reports                 * Programming knowledge 
* Reengineering patterns                 representations
* Collaborative reengr efforts       * Requirements traceability
* Software process implications      * Dynamic analysis
* Reverse engineering economics      * UML and round trip engineering
* Preprocessing and parsing          * Software metrics
* Software components                * Migration to model-driven 
* Web services                           architectures
* Reverse engr in homeland security   

Submission of Papers
