3rd International Conference on Evaluation of Novel Approaches to
Software Engineering


Funchal, Madeira, 4 - 7 May, 2008

organized by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of
Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC)

Full Paper Submission: November 9, 2007
Authors Notification: January 4, 2008
Final Paper Submission and Registration: January 25, 2008

ENASE 2008 will be held in conjunction with WEBIST 2008


The mission of the ENASE (Evaluation of Novel Approaches to Software
Engineering) series of working conferences is to be a prime
international forum to discuss and publish research findings and IT
industry experiences with relation to evaluation of novel approaches
to software engineering. By comparing novel approaches with
established traditional practices and by evaluating them against
software quality criteria, ENASE conferences advance knowledge and
research in software engineering, identify most hopeful trends and
propose new directions for consideration by researchers and
practitioners involved in large-scale software development and

Goals and Topics of Interest

ENASE provides a yearly forum for researchers and practitioners to
review and evaluate relatively new and original in conception SE
methods, practices, architectures, technologies and tools. An
important underpinning and assumption of ENASE is that in software
engineering "novel" turns out frequently to be just new hype. An
objective of ENASE is to reveal any such hype as soon as feasible.
This means that ENASE does not exclude more traditional approaches to
software development and integration. On the contrary, ENASE endeavors
to compare novel with traditional, also to discover if novel is not
just traditional in disguise. Consequently, ENASE accepts also papers
concentrating on a critique of more established and popular SE

Against that background, ENASE undertakes to provide fast but careful
scientific and empirical evaluation of new as well as more established
approaches to software engineering. Of particular interest are
experience reports and evaluations (qualitative and quantitative) of
existing approaches as well as new ideas and proposals for
improvements. The conference solicits experiments, case studies,
surveys, meta-analyses, empirical studies, systematic reviews,
conceptual explorations, innovative ideas, critical appraisals, etc.
