This workshop is a co-located event of the International Federa- tion for Information Processing, World Computer Congress of 2000 (IFIP WCC2000), under the subconference, International Confer- ence on Software: Theory and Practice (ICS2000), 20-25 August, 2000, Beijing.
Motivation: Since 1987, Software EngineersAssociation (SEA) of Japan has been conducting a series of international technical symposia in China in the Autumn every year: China-Japan Software Symposium (1987-90), International CASE Symposium (1991-95), and International Symposium on Future Software Technology ISFST since 1996. The next ISFST2000 will be held in Guiyang city (the capital of Guizhou Province), 28-30 August, as a satellite event of ICS2000. And this Workshop (IWSEPPA) is planned to be a prelude for ISFST within ICS2000.
The computing environment around us has been changed rapidly and will keep changing in future. The widening coverage of the Internet and also exploding application of micro-electronic technology will also bring heavy impact on the environment for software development and management in the coming century. Maybe it is necessary for us to reconstruct the framework of software engineering somehow. This workshop aims to provide an opportun- ity to discuss about possible changes in software engineering in the near future for researchers, engineers and managers who are interested in practical application of software engineering.
