Software Engineering in Taiwan Workshop


Co-located with the 28th Asia Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC 2021)

6th - 9th December 2021, Taiwan (VIRTUAL)

Taiwan's software industry has poised itself to become one of the most important industries with its growing annual revenues. As a result, software engineering is also getting more and more attention in Taiwan. As an emerging sub-discipline of software engineering, DevOps (Development & Operations) aims to shorten the software development life cycle and enable continuous delivery with high software quality. Presently, the theories and practices of DevOps have become hot topics in Taiwan.

The Software Engineering in Taiwan Workshop (SETaiwan2021) aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Software Engineering, especially DevOps, in Taiwan. It also provides a premier platform for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Software Engineering in Taiwan. We invite submissions of high-quality papers describing fully developed results or ongoing foundational work on the various topics of DevOps, including (but not limited to):

- DevOps Processes

- DevOps Tools

- DevOps Infrastructure

- DevOps Quality

- Continuous Integration & Testing

- Continuous Delivery & Automation

- Microservices & Service-Oriented Architecture

- Monitoring & Observability

- DevSecOps

SEinTaiwan2021 is planned to be held online and co-located with the 28th Asia Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC 2021). Accepted quality papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of JISE (Journal of Information Science and Engineering).
We look forward to your contribution and participation!

SETaiwan2021 Goals

The workshop is focusing on the research and technology exchange for software engineering in Taiwan.

Information for Presenters

· The presenter enters the virtual ‘meeting room’ well before the start of the session, preferably 10 min and at least 5 minutes before the start of the parallel session in which he/she presents.

· The presenter gives a 12-minute presentation based on the accepted paper, preferably with a PowerPoint presentation.

· The presenter should set his or her own timer to stick to the time. Please keep slides to a minimum and avoid overloading the slides with too much text and information.

· We expect presenters to inform their audience on the main research question and methodology; originality of contribution; (preliminary) findings; and remaining research challenges and implications.

· Should you feel your Internet connection is unstable, we advise you to pre-record a video of your presentation and send it to us by email to prior to the session.
