RISE 2006, 3rd International Workshop on
Rapid Integration of Software Engineering techniques
13-15 September, 2006
University of Geneva,  Switzerland

RISE 2006 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.

We will submit the post-proceedings of the workshop for publication  
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
and the 2005 edition will be available as LNCS Volume 3943.

RISE 2006 will be held in Geneva, Switzerland. This workshop is  
sponsored and organised by the Software Modeling and Verification  
Group at University of Geneva. The venue of
the workshop will be the main Historical Building of University of  

Since its creation in 1559 by Jean Calvin, the academia and later  
the University of Geneva is widely open to the world and  
continuously promotes excellence in research and
teaching. The University is the second largest in Switzerland and a  
member of the 'League of European Research Universities' made up of  
12 top research Universities in Europe.

Located in the city center, the University of Geneva benefits from  
the international atmosphere of the city of Geneva that hosts  
numerous international organizations such
has United Nation European Headquarters, WHO (World Health  
Organization), WTO (World Trade Organization), and CERN (the  
European Organization for Nuclear Research).

The Centre Universitaire d'Informatique (CUI) has been created in  
1973 and since these early days for computer science, delivers  
diploma and host research in many different
domains of fundamental, interdisciplinary and applied computing.


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  
- 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
- Software 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  
- 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

Foundational papers, tools papers and experience papers can be  
submitted electronically via the RISE 2006 web site at http://smv.unige.ch/rise06. 
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 the submission deadline. 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.

Submissions due : May 19, 2006 
Notification of acceptance : June 26, 2006 
Registration and submission of final papers : July 17, 2006 

At least one of the paper authors should both register and  
participate in the workshop, giving a technical oral presentation.  
The registration fee covers the

- Reception dinner ticket;
- Workshop lunch buffer and coffee breaks;

Please check at the workshop web site for registration details.

For the presentations the following equipment will be available:  
(a) a high-definition PC projector; (b) a laser pointer; (c) a  
flipchart; (d) one
Windows PC/ Mac with all necessary connectors; and (e) a cordless  
microphone with surround loudspeaker audio system for the oral
