Reusability has been emerging for the last few years as one of the
hottest research fields in software engineering. Several research
effort are ongoing, standards are being defined and the first
commercial products are emerging. The aim of this workshop is
to bring together researchers, software engineers and industrial
experts in the area of software reusability to discuss the state of
the art of research as well as of commercial products.

Topics of interest include:

- Reusable artifact libraries
- Metrics
- Description, Certification and Quality Evaluation of Components
- Copyright issues
- Team organization for reuse
- Reuse incentives
- Productivity evaluation
- Market sensitivity

People willing to take part in the workshop are requested to submit a
paper which will be
reviewed and evaluated according to its quality and its relevance to
the workshop aims.

Submission deadline (camera ready format): april 15th 1994
Notification of acceptance: april 22th 1994

       The 6th Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering

		  Utrecht, The Netherlands, 6-10 June 1994

Organisers : Software Engineering Research Centre and University of Twente

The CAiSE conferences are a platform for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss and exchange new developments in methods, techniques and tools to develop advanced information systems. The programme of events for CAiSE*94 provides an excellent starting point for these stimulating exchange of results and new developments.
The three day conference consists of a scientific programme and an industrial programme offering the participants the possibility to attend a wide variety of activities including paper sessions, keynote speakers, workshops, tutorials and an exhibition.

The CAiSE*94 will take place in Utrecht. One of the largest cities of the Netherlands. The beautiful city is located in the middle of the Netherlands. It has a modern heart containing the largest indoor shopping centre of the Netherlands, as well as an old, pedestrian-friendly city centre with canals and several mediaeval churches and other buildings. The many museums, theatres, restaurants, and bars form the perfect ambiance for the conference. Moreover, 1994 is the year of Mondriaan and the 400th anniver

sary of the first Tulip fields in the Netherlands.


The conference will be accompanied by a commercial exhibition and by presentation sessions of innovative products. At printing the following organisation have agreed to participate in the programme.
