      The Sixth International Symposium on Software Metrics


          November 5-6, 1999. Boca Raton, Florida, USA

            "Taking the Measure of New Technology"

Co-located with IEEE International Symposium on Software 

Engineering (ISSRE'99):


                          Call for Papers

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Council=20
on Software Engineering (Pending approval) in cooperation
with Fraunhofer IESE and the Software Productivity Consortium.

About the METRICS symposium:

Effective technology depends upon measurement, and effective
measurement depends upon a three-pronged approach of science
to develop metrics, engineering to evaluate and test metrics,
and applications that use metrics in industry. Papers are=20
desired which address any one of these crucial areas:

Science -       Topics include new models for the measurement
                of requirements, design, and code structures;
                Evaluation of functional, object- oriented=20
                and program complexity; Process models on the
                effectiveness of resource, testing, or quality
                attributes; Cycle-time models

Engineering-      Tailoring of formal models to apply to industry;
                Evaluation and experimental results showing
                applicability of models and measures to real
                problems; Tool support for the collection,=20
                analysis and display of measures

Applications -  Case studies showing novel uses of measures in
                industry; Examples of metric use; Effective suites
                of multiple measures for project management

Symposium Theme:
Many new approaches to software development have become commercially
important in the past few years. Existing measurement concepts and
techniques must be updated to address these technologies.The theme
of the conference will focus on the application of measurement
(through empirical studies) to understanding and managing new software
technologies (including their related tools and processes), such
- COTS-Based Development
- Software Architectures
- Object-Oriented Development
- Web-based Applications

Quality papers on other general measurement topics will also be
