CALL FOR PAPER
2nd Software Engineering Postgraduates Workshop
Date: 22 December 2010
Venue: Paradise Sandy Beach, Tanjung Bungah, Penang, Malaysia
Second Software Engineering Postgraduates Workshop (SEPoW 2010) is a forum for Master’s and Ph.D. postgraduates who conduct research in software engineering mainly in Malaysia. The first SEPoW 2009 was hosted for the first time in Malaysia in conjunction with 16th Asia Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC 2009). Postgraduates will converge to present and discuss their research with peers and experienced researchers in a constructively critical atmosphere. The workshop provides mentoring panel consisting of experts in different areas of software engineering who will actively reflect on the research work and will contribute to the discussions. Presentations and discussions will be conducted in English. The workshop welcomes software engineering postgraduates who have completed extended research proposal stage to submit, participate and grab the opportunity to gain beneficial feedbacks and mock viva of their research work from experienced researchers.
Deadline for Full Paper Submission: 10 November 2010 (Extended to 14 November 2010)
Notification of Acceptance: 22 November 2010
Camera Ready: 1 December 2010

SEPoW 2010 REPORT
The one-day event of 2nd SEPoW 2010 with the theme “Sustaining Software Engineering Research and Practice” succeeded in bringing both invited international and local experts in software engineering to converge and share their expertise with participating postgraduates. The workshop consisted of two talks by international experts and twenty-two presentations of selected postgraduates’ research. Assoc. Prof. Jin Song Dong shared his work on model checker for design analysis and verification followed by a sharing session on software engineering publication. The second talk by Prof. Karl R. P. H. Leung discussed a technical topic “On Metamorphic Testing” and a sharing session on his dream on future software development method. In the afternoon session, there were four sessions covering four main topics: software requirements and methodology, software design and architecture, program analysis and software testing, and software development and methodology. Each presentation derived constructive comments from panel of mentors comprising both international and national experts in software engineering. We thanked all participating experts and postgraduates, the advisor Prof. Dr Rosni Abdullah, the workshop chair Prof. Dr Shamsul Sahibuddin, the secretariat and committee members, including student volunteers, and others who have contributed to the success of the workshop. We hope to be able to organise the 3rd SEPoW 2011 as the co-located event of the 5th Malaysian Software Engineering Conference (MySEC 2011) to sustain software engineering research and practice in Malaysia.
