Annals of Software Engineering:
Special Volume on "Computational Intelligence In Software Engineering"
The Annals of Software Engineering journal seeks articles for a special
volume on "Computational Intelligence In Software Engineering".
The constantly evolving technological infrastructure of the modern world
presents a great challenge of developing software systems with increasing
size and complexity. Software engineers and researchers are striving to
meet these and other continuously growing challenges by developing and
implementing useful software engineering methodologies. However, despite
the introduction of some important and useful paradigms in the software
engineering discipline, their technological transfers on a larger scale has
been extremely gradual and limited.
The recent emergence of the field of Computational Intelligence (CI) in
Software Engineering provides a software development team with an
opportunity by taking advantage of the currently developed, documented, and
mature CI technologies such as fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks,
genetic and artificial intelligence based computational systems, expert
knowledge based systems, and case based reasoning. These and other
computational intelligence technologies have been used to resolve issues
arising from the ever-increasing complexity and size of software systems.
The aim and scope of this special issue is focused on the current research
trends of introducing and implementing CI techniques to address the various
software engineering needs arising during different phases of software
development and analysis. This special issue is intended to serve as a
comprehensive collection of some of the current state-of-the-art CI in
software engineering technologies.

Annals of Software Engineering imposes virtually no length limitation on
the submitted papers. A paper's length is judged with respect to the
quality of its content. Submitted papers must not have been previously
published or be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
All papers will be rigorously refereed. The complete manuscript in PDF or
postscript format should be submitted to the editor on or before April 1,
Submission of a manuscript to the Annals of Software Engineering journal
is a representation that the manuscript:
(a) has not been previously published,
(b) is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere, and
(c) will not be submitted elsewhere until a decision is made regarding
its suitability for publication in Annals of Software Engineering.
Submission is also the representation that the work has been approved for
open publication if performed under an official sponsorship requiring
such an approval.
