The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
Technical Committee on Software Engineering

This conference is an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in, and applications of, software engineering. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

SEA 2002 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing and Systems (PDCS 2002).

SEA 2002 will be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one of the world's most prestigious universities. The institution admitted its first students in 1856, and quickly established itself as a new kind of independent educational institution by coupling teaching and research and by focusing attention on real-world problems. MIT also pioneered the development of the teaching laboratory. Equally important today, education and research - with relevance to the practical world as a guiding principle - continue to be its primary purpose.  Adjacent to the campus is the Cambridge Marriott, which will serve as the secondary facility for the conference.

Located across the Charles River from Boston, Cambridge offers an exciting multicultural setting as well as two of the world's premier educational institutions. Founded in 1630 as the first seat of government for the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Cambridge has developed into an international community merging history, education, arts, and culture within its lively neighborhoods. Attractions include Harvard Square, Beacon Hill, and the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. The heavy industries of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries have been replaced by technology-based enterprises, including electronics, self-developing film and cameras, software, and biotechnology research.
