Table of Contents


The Twenty-Ninth International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (SEKE 2017) will be held at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center, Pittsburgh, USA, from July 5 to July 7, 2017.

The conference aims at bringing together experts in software engineering and knowledge engineering to discuss on relevant results in either software engineering or knowledge engineering or both. Special emphasis will be put on the transference of methods between both domains. The theme this year is big data and software engineering & knowledge engineering. Submission of papers and demos are both welcome.


The best ranked papers from the conference will be selected for a special issue of the International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (IJSEKE) to be published in December 2017 for early dissemination.


The Int'l Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems, Visual Languages and Sentient Systems DMSVLSS2017 ( will be held at the same hotel from July 7 to July 8, 2017. Authors are welcome to contribute papers and attend both conferences.
