New This Year: SEPG Europe 2012 Collaborates with IEEE Software for Paper Submissions

The SEPG Europe 2012 Program Committee is excited to announce a new-for-2012 collaboration with IEEE Software magazine. IEEE Software offers pioneering ideas, expert analyses, and thoughtful insights for software professionals who need to keep up with rapid technology change. It is the authority on translating software theory into practice.

What does this mean for SEPG Europe 2012 delegates? As a result of this partnership, we pleased to offer all presenters an opportunity to submit papers for review and acceptance both for an SEI Special Report and additional inclusion as an article in IEEE Software magazine, both to be published after the SEPG Europe 2012 conference. When submitting your presentation abstract, you will be required to indicate whether you are interested in participating in a possible paper submission if accepted.

During the call for participation period, all you have to do is indicate your interest in submitting a future paper. The paper itself is not due at this time.

We hope that you find benefit from this new collaboration. We look forward to reading your submissions.
