                              Call for Papers

                    The Second International Workshop on
        Software Engineering and Multimedia Applications (SEMA2000)

                         August 1 - August 2, 2000

                            in conjunction with

                    The 12th International Conference on
               Systems Research, Informatics and Cybernetice
                          July 31 - August 5, 2000
                       The Markgraf-Ludwing-Gymnasium

Software development is a complicate process. It requires a systematic
approach in different phrases of the development. From the analysis of
system requirements, to the design of software architecture,
implementation, testing, and maintenance, each step has its goal. Software
Engineering, as one of the most interesting research areas of computer
engineering, still plays an important role. On the other hand, there has
been an explosive growth of multimedia computing, communication and
applications in the last few years. This revolution is transforming the way
people live, work, and interact with each other, and is impacting the way
businesses, government services, education, entertainment, and health care
are operating. It is safe to say that the multimedia revolution is
underway. The purpose of this workshop is to serve as a forum for the

exchange of ideas among practicing engineers and researchers from around
the world, as well as highlight current activities and important topics in
the fields of software engineering and multimedia computing. The workshop
organizers seek contributions of high quality papers, addressing various
aspects of software tools and multimedia systems, for presentation at the
workshop and publication in the proceedings. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to:

Software Engineering:

   * software development life cycle
   * project management
   * project cycle time reduction and cost-effectiveness
   * software metrics and testing
   * software reuse
