STEP'97, the Eighth International Workshop on Software Technology and Engineering Practice (incorporating CASE'97), will take place in London, UK, from 14 to 18 July 1997.

Software and systems development, evolution and management are undergoing dramatic change as we move into the 21st century. Economic pressures require systems to be built better, cheaper and faster. Increased IT awareness and the use of technologies such as object orientation are creating a new generation of system builders who do not necessarily have a traditional software development background.

New communication technologies and cooperative working are forcing changes to working practices leading to distributed, 24-hour and global software development. The result is that the processes, skills and tools which support all aspects of software development will undergo dramatic change during the next few years.

STEP (Software Technology and Engineering Practice) is a broad-based workshop for practitioners, applied researchers and the software industry. It aims to highlight the lessons from practical software engineering, whilst seeking to develop a vision for software engineering over the next few years. The objective is to identify the skills, techniques and support processes and tolls which future developers will be using and what cost-effective transition path should be adopted.

Experience reports, research papers, evaluations and surveys are invited on a range of software engineering techniques and practices. Experience papers which 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.

Prizes will be awarded to the paper presenting the most innovative idea in software engineering methods, techniques and processes, and to the paper presenting the most creative use of software technology.
