The Annual International Conference on Software Engineering & Applications provides a forum for researchers in academia and industry to share the latest technologies and developments in this rapidly developing field. This conference stresses inter-disciplinary communication, and affords valuable outreach opportunities to professionals and students alike.
Software engineering, like all other branches of engineering, deals with the design, implementation, application, and maintenance of systems related to diverse areas of human endeavour. Its uniqueness, however, lies in the intangible nature of its product: software, which certainly has significant tangible consequences, nevertheless.
Today’s software systems are large and complex, and their successful execution requires the coordinated efforts of a large number of domain experts, not all of whom know much of the computing aspects of the enterprise. The role of the software engineer in this environment is a crucial one, and is one that requires much more than just knowledge of computer science. In this conference, the central role of the software engineer, as shown in its application to a wide variety of areas, both scientific and artistic, will be clearly apparent.
