30 August 1999 - 30 August 1999
United States

STEP'99, the ninth in a series of international conferences on software technology and engineering practice, will be held in Pittsburgh, USA, from 30 August to 2 September 1999, organised by the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers. The aim of the event is to provide an opportunity for interaction between practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and government, to review the current state of practice, to report on experiences, and to present issues and solutions in the area of software engineering technology.

The conference will address the theme "Software engineering in a Net-centric world" and will discuss the complexity of working in a component-based, distributed, and hetereogeneous environment. This is causing a profound change in the skills needed, in the business model utilised and in the technology used to develop and maintain software applications.

The conference organisers are currently seeking the submission of experience reports, research papers, evaluations and surveys on all relevant topics. Experience papers that seek to draw out valuable lessons from practical software engineering are particularly welcome, as are research papers which take an innovative view of future software development processes and support tools.
