The mission of the ENASE (Evaluation of Novel Approaches to Software Engineering) series of working conferences is to be a prime international forum to discuss and publish research findings and IT industry experiences with relation to evaluation of novel approaches to software engineering. By comparing novel approaches with established traditional practices and by evaluating them against software quality criteria, ENASE conferences advance knowledge and research in software engineering, identify most hopeful trends and propose new directions for consideration by researchers and practitioners involved in large-scale software development and integration. An innovative idea and important highlight of all ENASE conferences is the Advocatus Diaboli Forum (ADF).


ENASE provides a yearly forum for researchers and practitioners to review and evaluate emerging as well as established SE methods, practices, architectures, technologies and tools. An important underpinning and assumption of ENASE is that in software engineering "novel" turns out frequently to be just new hype. An objective of ENASE is to reveal any such hype as soon as feasible. This means that ENASE does not exclude more traditional approaches to software development and integration. On the contrary, ENASE endeavors to compare novel with traditional, also to discover if novel is not just traditional in disguise. Consequently, ENASE accepts also papers concentrating on a critique of more traditional and entrenched SE approaches.

Against that background, ENASE undertakes to provide fast but careful scientific and empirical evaluation of new as well as more established approaches to software engineering. Of particular interest are experience reports and evaluations (qualitative and quantitative) of existing approaches as well as new ideas and proposals for improvements. The conference solicits experiments, case studies, surveys, meta-analyses, empirical studies, systematic reviews, conceptual explorations, innovative ideas, critical appraisals, etc. related to:

  • agile software development,
  • aspect-oriented software development,
  • agent-oriented software engineering,
  • multi-agent systems,
  • model-driven engineering,
  • component-based software engineering,
  • evolutionary design,
  • intentional software,
  • example centric programming,
  • meta programming systems,
  • knowledge management and engineering,
  • architectural design and meta architectures,
  • business process management, engineering and reengineering,
  • process-centric paradigms,
  • service-oriented architectures,
  • application integration technologies,
  • enterprise integration strategies and patterns,
  • e-business technologies,
  • requirements engineering frameworks and models,
  • collaborative requirements management systems,
  • business and software modeling languages,
  • software quality management,
  • software change and configuration management,
  • geographically distributed software development environments,
  • cross-feeding between data engineering and software engineering,
  • design thinking as a paradigm for software development,
  • formal methods,
  • software process improvement,
  • metamodelling,
  • software development methodologies

There are no words to describe how boadciuos this is.


Milan (Milano), situated on the flat plains of the Po Valley, is the capital of Lombardy and thoroughly enjoys its hard earned role as Italy's richest and second largest city. Wealthy and cosmopolitan, the Milanesi enjoy a reputation as successful businesspeople, equally at home overseas and in Italy. Embracing tradition, sophistication and ambition in equal measure, they are just as likely to follow opera at La Scala as their shares on the city's stock market or AC or Inter at the San Siro Stadium. Three times in its history, the city had to rebuild after being conquered. Founded in the seventh century BC by Celts, the city, then known as Mediolanum ('mid-plain'), was first sacked by the Goths in the 600s (AD), then by Barbarossa in 1157 and finally by the Allies in World War II, when over a quarter of the city was flattened. Milan successively reinvented herself under French, Spanish and then Austrian rulers from 1499 until the reunification of Italy in 1870. It is a miracle that so many historic treasures still exist, including Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper, which survived a direct hit in World War II. The Milanesi's appreciation of tradition includes a singular respect for religion; they even pay a special tax towards the Cathedral maintenance. It is therefore fitting that the city's enduring symbol is the gilded statue of the Virgin, on top of the Cathedral (Il Duomo). Milan is founded around a historic nucleus radiating from the Cathedral, with a star-shaped axis of arteries spreading through modern suburbs to the ring road. The modern civic center lies to the northwest, around Mussolini's central station, and is dominated by the Pirelli skyscraper, which dates from 1956. The trade and fashion fairs take place in the Fiera district, west of the nucleus around the Porta Genova station. Milan's economic success was founded at the end of the 19th century, when the metal factories and the rubber industries moved in, replacing agriculture and mercantile trading as the city's main sources of income. Milan's position at the heart of a network of canals, which provided the irrigation for the Lombard plains and the important trade links between the north and south, became less important as industry took over - and the waterways were filled. A few canals remain in the Navigli district near the Bocconi University, a fashionable area in which to drink and listen to live music. Since the 1970s, Milan has remained the capital of Italy's automobile industry and its financial markets, but the limelight is dominated by the fashion houses, who, in turn, have drawn media and advertising agencies to the city. Milan remains the marketplace for Italian fashion - fashion aficionados, supermodels and international paparazzi descend upon the city twice a year for its spring and autumn fairs. Valentino, Versace and Armani may design and manufacture their clothes elsewhere but Milan, which has carefully guarded its reputation for flair, drama and creativity, is Italy's natural stage.
