The 37th IEEE Software Engineering Workshop (SEW-37)

Prague, Czech Republic, 3 - 6 September, 2017

The IEEE Software Engineering Workshop (SEW) is the oldest Software Engineering event in the world, dating back to 1969, and with the last 36th workshop organized in Gdansk, Poland, 11-14 September 2016.

The workshop was original run as the NASA Software Engineering Workshop and focused on software engineering issues relevant to NASA and the space industry. After the 25th edition, it became the NASA/IEEE Software Engineering Workshop and expanded its remit to address many more areas of software engineering with emphasis on practical issues, industrial experience and case studies in addition to traditional technical papers. Since its 31st edition, it has been sponsored by IEEE and has continued to broaden its areas of interest.


The workshop aims to bring together all those with an interest in software engineering. Traditionally, the workshop attracts industrial and government practitioners and academics pursuing the advancement of software engineering principles, techniques and practice. The workshop provides a forum for reporting on past experiences, for describing new and emerging results and approaches, and for exchanging ideas on best practice and future directions.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Experiments and experience reports
  • Software quality assurance and Metrics
  • Formal methods and formal approaches to software development
  • Software engineering processes and process improvement
  • Agile and Lean Methods
  • Requirements engineering
  • Software architectures
  • Real-time Software Engineering
  • Software maintenance, reuse, and legacy systems
  • Agent-based software systems
  • Self-managing systems
  • New approaches to software engineering (e.g., search based software engineering)
  • Software engineering issues Cyber-physical systems
  • Software Engineering for social media
