11th International Workshop on Program Comprehension

IWPC 2003

May 10-11, 2003
Hilton Portland Hotel
Portland, Oregon, USA

Co-located at ICSE 2003,
            the 25th International Conference on Software Engineering



Important Dates

  * Technical Papers due: December 20, 2002
  * Working sessions due: January 10, 2003
  * Tool demos due: January 10, 2003
  * Notification: January 31, 2003
  * Camera-ready papers due: February 28, 2003



Comprehending programs is one of the core software engineering
activities from early implementation to long-term software
evolution. Software reuse, inspection, reverse engineering, migration,
and reengineering of software systems all critically depend on program

IWPC 2003 will present the latest inventions, achievements and
experiences in program comprehension research and practice. We invite
you to participate in IWPC 2003 to help us build an exciting forum for
exchanging ideas and experiences in this ever expanding and critical
field of program comprehension.

We invite technical papers, tool demos, and working sessions on, but
not limited to, the following topics:
      * Theories, cognitive models, processes, and strategies for
          software comprehension
      * Tools facilitating program comprehension
      * Experiments and case studies with comprehension models, tools,
          and processes
      * Reverse engineering strategies and technologies to support
          program comprehension
      * Computer supported collaborative understanding
      * Comprehending and visualizing software artifacts
      * Comprehension during large scale maintenance, reengineering, and
      * Understanding distributed and network-centric systems
      * Understanding product line systems


Technical Papers

Papers should be original work, limited to 10 proceedings pages, and
at most 6000 words. Papers must not have been previously published
nor have been submitted to, or be in consideration for, any journal,
book, or conference.

Working Sessions

We invite proposals for working sessions (90 minutes each) on any of
the topic areas mentioned above. Working sessions are designed around
a specific theme and should be more interactive and

Tool Demos

We also invite proposals for tool demos on any of the topic areas
mentioned above. The proposal should include a description of the tool
or environment, its applicability to program comprehension, and a
brief description of the proposed type of demonstration.


Paper Submission

Submissions to IWPC 2003 will use the ICSE 2003 electronic submission
process. Technical papers must conform to the IEEE paper guidelines.

IEEE Computer Society Press will publish the workshop
proceedings. Short papers for accepted working sessions and tool demos
will also be included in the proceedings.

Authors are expected to present their accepted papers or proposals at
IWPC 2003 in Portland.
