    CSMR is  the premier  European Conference on  Software Maintenance
    and Reengineering.  Its purpose is to promote  both discussion and
    interaction about evolution, maintenance and reengineering.

    Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to: 

    Evolution, maintenance and reengineering:
            + pattern languages
            + experience reports (successes and failures)
            + tools
            + enabling technologies
            + formal methods
            + system assessment
            + web-site
    Metrics and economics 
    Software evolution and architecture recovery 
    Migration and maintenance issues 
    Dealing with legacy systems towards new technologies 
    Wrapping and interfacing legacy systems 
    Data reengineering 
    Reverse engineering of embedded (control, mobile, ...) systems 
    Evaluation and assessment of reverse engineering tools 

    One  of the  basic intentions  of this  conference is  to  offer a
    European forum  for discussion  and exchange of  experiences among
    researchers  and practitioners.  Therefore, besides  academics, we
    kindly invite all those in companies developing maintenance tools,
    offering  reengineering services or  going through  legacy systems
    migration  experiences  to  contribute  by  submitting  papers  or
    presenting innovative tools, solutions or experience reports. This
    conference is  not limited to European  participants; authors from
    outside Europe are also welcomed.


    IEEE   Computer  Society   Press  will   publish  the   CSMR  2003
