Call for papers
Deadline: July, 20th, 2005 (EXTENDED).
RISE 2005, 2nd International Workshop on
Rapid Integration of Software Engineering techniques
Sponsored by ERCIM - European Research Consortium
for Informatics and Mathermatics.
8-9 September, 2005
Heraklion, Crete, GREECE
Keynote speaker: Prof. Bertrand Meyer

RISE 2005 is an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the 
advancement and rapid application of novel, integrated, or practical software engineering 
approaches, being part of a methodological framework, that apply to the development of 
either new or evolving applications and systems. It provides a nice opportunity to present 
and discuss the latest research results and ideas in the rapid and effective integration of 
software engineering techniques.

All papers submitted to this workshop will be peer reviewed by at least two members of 
the International Programme Committee. Acceptance will be primarily based on 
originality and contribution to the area.

The post-proceedings of the workshop will be published in the Springer Verlag Lecture 
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series. The LNCS are published as printed books 
and as full-text electronic versions (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/index.html). The 
proceedings of RISE 2004 are available in LNCS Volume 3475. 

Due to the tight schedule, during the workshop ERCIM-printed pre-proceedings will be 
provided. After the workshop, a complimentary copy of the published Springer LNCS 
RISE Volume will be posted to each participant by the organizer.

RISE 2005 will be held in the island of Crete, Greece. This workshop is sponsored and 
organised by the Institute of Computer Science of FORTH (http://www.ics.forth.gr). The 
venue of the workshop will be the Conference Centre of Aldemar Knossos Royal Village 
Hotel(*****) (http://www.aldemarhotels.com/page/default.asp?id=14&la=1), a seaside 
resort near Heraklion, where we will have full conference facilities 
at our disposal. It is a "village" of attractive bungalows, located 24 km east 
of Heraklion International Airport. This place is a well-known destination, as many 
workshops, symposia, scientific forums, meetings and international conferences have 
been organised there in the past.

Bertrand Meyer, Professor of Software Engineering at ETH Zurich, and Founder and 
Chief Architect of Eiffel Software in California.
He is the inventor of the Design by Contract method, while and author of many books 
including: 'Object-Oriented Software Construction', 'Reusable Software', 'Introduction 
to the Theory of Programming Languages' and 'Eiffel: The Language'.

Main topics
The following constitute the core list of the key software engineering domains that form 
the focal point of the RISE workshop. However, this list should not be considered as 
closed or technically restrictive for paper submissions:

*	Software and system architectures
*	Software reuse
*	Software testing
*	Software model checking
*	Model driven design and testing techniques
*	Model transformation
*	Requirements engineering
*	Lightweight or practice-oriented formal methods
*	Software processes and software metrics
*	Automated software engineering
*	Design patterns
*	Design by contract
*	Defensive programming
*	Software entropy and software re-factoring
*	Extreme programming
*	Agile software development 
*	Programming languages
*	Software dependability and trustworthiness

Key applications domains 
There are specific targeted application domains of particular interest to the RISE 
workshop; submissions may well negotiate a domain-specific software engineering 
method; the following list is not restrictive.

*	Web-based software systems
*	Mobile communication systems
*	High-availability or mission-critical systems
*	Resilient business and grid applications
*	Ambient intelligence environments

Foundational papers, tools papers and experience papers can be submitted electronically 
via the RISE 2005 web site at http://rise2005.ics.forth.gr. All submissions should be in 
Adobe Acrobat or Postscript format. Authors should follow the instructions at: 
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. All papers will be peer reviewed by at 
least two members of the international program committee, according to criteria of 
scientific quality, technical soundness, innovation, writing and presentation quality, and 
relevance to the workshop topics.

The page limit for final papers is sixteen (16) pages (~6000 words). All submissions must 
be received electronically no later than July 5, 2005. It should be noted that hard copy 
submissions are not accepted. Please also consider that one of the authors has to present 
the paper at the workshop, and that for the final submission one of the authors will have 
to sign a relevant LNCS copyright transfer agreement. Finally, the authors are expected 
to respect the dates for submission of the final camera-ready versions, as well as for the 
workshop registration, to ensure that their paper can be included in the workshop 

Submissions due				:  July 20, 2005
Notification of acceptance			:  August 1, 2005
Registration and submission of final papers	:  August 20, 2005

At least one of the paper authors should both register and participate in the workshop,

appropriately accommodate your requirements.

Within the workshop hall, a small demonstration area will be set-up. The organisers will 
provide a number of technical demonstrations, while there will be a place where 
participants may put any leaflets, announcements or hard-copy material for the rest of the 
workshop participants. The demonstrations will be normally given during the breaks, 
upon request. In case participants are interested to also provide an informal 
demonstration, kindly let us know, by sending us the title, a brief summary of the 
demonstration, and your availability in the demonstration space during the workshop. 
Informal demonstrations are not included in the workshop proceedings, but are
