The conference aims at bringing together experts in knowledge
engineering and knowledge engineering to discuss on relevant results in
either knowledge engineering or software engineering or both.
Special emphasis will be put on the transference of methods between
both domains. However, outstanding research results and innovative
methodologies for software engineering or knowledge engineering
alone are also being solicited.

Solicited topics include, but are not limited to:

Adaptive Systems
Artificial Intelligence Approaches to Software Engineering
Automated Reasoning
Automated Software Design and Synthesis
Automated Software Specification
Component-Based Software Engineering
Computer-Supported Cooperative Work
Design Methods
Education and Training
Electronic Commerce
Formal Methods
Human-Computer Interaction
Industrial Applications
Integrity, Security, and Fault Tolerance
Knowledge Acquisition
Knowledge-Based and Expert Systems
Knowledge Representation and Retrieval
Knowledge Engineering Tools and Techniques
Knowledge Visualization

Submissions that address research and development
on the above and other related topics are strongly encouraged.
The scientific quality of contributed papers will be ensured by
a severe revision process, that will involve all members of the Program
and the Steering Committees.
The Proceedings will be published by a well known press company.
A selection of the best papers in software engineering and knowledge
engineering will be published in a Special Issue of the International
Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering.

Papers will be submitted electronically. Detailed information on
electronic submission will be provided at the SEKE'02 Web site.

Two thematic workshops will be held during the conference:

Workshop on Web Engineering
Chair: Prof. Athula Ginige,
Advanced Enterprise Information Management Systems
Research Centre,
University of Western Sydney, Sydney, Australia
e-mail: a.ginige at

Workshop on Software Engineering Decision Support
Chair: Prof. Ruhe Guenther,
Professor and Industrial Research Chair
Software Engineering
University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada
e-mail: ruhe at

Papers on those specific topics may be on-line submitted to the
corresponding workshop.
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings.
The International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge
Engineering will devote two Special Issues to Web Engineering and
Software Engineering Decision Support, respectively.
Each special issue will be edited by the
corresponding Workshop Chair, and will also include the
best papers presented at the Workshop.


Paper submission deadline: March 5, 2002
Notification of acceptance: April 15, 2002

We look forward to welcoming you in Ischia. also called "The Green
Island", the largest of the three island in the bay of Naples. Ischia is

situated to the north of the gulf looking toward the "Flegrea" coast,
while in the south of the gulf, opposite to the Sorrento peninsula,
lays Capri.
The Island of Ischia is one of the most attractive and most visited
resorts of Southern Italy. It is internationally renowned, not only
for its natural beauty and its clear sea waters, but also because of the

volcanic origin of the island which makes it one of the major Thermal
Treatment Center in Europe.
You can reach Ischia from Naples either by ferry boat ( in 75 minutes),
or by hydrofoil ( 30 minutes). When in Ischia, be sure not to miss the
Aragonese Castle, the tower of St. Angelo, the beach of Maronti, and the

Thermal Parks, as well as the Tourist Port, bulging with private yachts
coming from all over Europe and the Mediterranean Countries.
