hosted at The 5th International ICST Conference on Bio-Inspired Models of Network,
Information, and Computing Systems (BIONETICS 2010) 
Boston, MA, USA 
December 1 - 3, 2010

Objectives:
As software engineering is requested to answer dynamic, automated, adaptive, optimal 
and/or large-scale demands, other computer science disciplines come to play. Artificial 
Intelligence is one of them that may bring software engineering into further height. 
Conversely, software engineering techniques also play an important role to alleviate 
development cost and time of AI techniques as well as assist in introducing new AI 
techniques. Such mutually beneficial characteristics have appeared in the past few 
decades and still evolved due to new challenges.

The objective of the special track on Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering 
is to provide a forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange and discuss 
latest innovative "synergistic" AI and software engineering techniques/practices. Namely, 
we are interested in AI solutions to software engineering challenges, software engineering 
practices to answer AI obstacles, and techniques that could benefit these realms 
bi-directionally.

This special track seeks high-quality original and unpublished papers in the following 
topics including but not limited to these topics:
        * AI techniques for optimization, transformation, and configuration management 
        * AI techniques for software reuse, evolution, maintenance and refactoring 
        * AI techniques for ontology and other semantic aspects in software engineering 
        * AI techniques for business process management and business rules 
        * AI techniques for reverse engineering and program understanding 
        * AI techniques for aspect mining and pattern mining 
        * AI techniques for testing and quality assurance 
        * AI techniques for performance engineering (e.g., performance approximation, 
          monitoring, and adaptation) 
        * AI techniques for software specification, design, integration and requirement 
          engineering 
        * AI techniques for software analysis and validation 
        * AI techniques for cost analysis and risk assessment in software projects 
        * Agent-based software engineering 
        * Visual modeling and model-driven development for AI techniques 
        * Domain modeling and software language engineering (e.g., domain-specific 
          languages) for AI techniques 
        * Service-oriented computing and Cloud computing for AI-based techniques/software 
        * Object-oriented and aspect-oriented frameworks to implement and evaluate AI 
          techniques 
        * Formal methods for AI techniques 
        * Rapid prototyping and scripting for AI techniques 
        * Software for knowledge acquisition and representation 
        * Software metrics applied to AI techniques 
        * Search engines in AI 
        * User interfaces for AI techniques 

AI techniques of interest include (but are not limited to):
        * Machine Learning (unsupervised and supervised learning) 
        * Evolutionary Algorithms (e.g. GA, GP, ES) 
        * Swarm Intelligence 
        * Simulated Annealing 
        * Tabu Search 
        * Probabilistic Reasoning 
        * Fuzzy Logic 
        * Neural Networks 
        * Petri Nets 
        * Data Mining 
        * Game Theory 
        * Time Series Analysis 
        * Logic and reasoning 
        * Knowledge representation 
        * AI planning
