*******************************************************************
RISE 2005, 2nd International Workshop 
Rapid Integration of Software Engineering techniques
*******************************************************************
8-9 September, 2005
Heraklion, Crete, GREECE
http://rise2005.ics.forth.gr
*******************************************************************

PURPOSE
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.

PROCEEDINGS
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 should 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 proceedings will be 
provided, while following the workshop, a complimentary copy of the published Springer 
LNCS RISE Volume will be post-mailed to each participant by the organizer.

SPONSORS 
- The European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics  (ERCIM - http://www.ercim.org ). 
- FNR - Luxembourg National Research Fund (http://www.fnr.lu).
- SE2C - Software Engineering Competence Centre of the University of Luxembourg (http://se2c.uni.lu).
- Institute of Computer Science (ICS), FORTH (http://www.ics.forth.gr).

LOCATION
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 scientific and business 
destination, as many workshops, symposia, scientific forums, executive meetings and 
international conferences have been organised there in the past.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER
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 his books include: 'Object-
Oriented Software Construction', 'Reusable Software', 'Introduction to the Theory of 
Programming Languages' and 'Eiffel: The Language'.

SCOPE
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, meaning 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
- Embedded systems and applications
- User interface development
- Development environments
- Electronic entertainment
- Enterprise computing and applications

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS
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 kindly 
expected to respect the dates for submission of the final camera-ready versions, as well as 
for the workshop registration, so that the paper can be included in the workshop 
proceedings.
