SEDE 2019:Editor's Preface

The 28th International Conference on Software Engineering and Data Engineering (SEDE-2019) provides researchers and scientists all over the world a great opportunity to present and discuss research results in the areas of software engineering and data engineering. The conference particularly welcomes contributions at the junction between theory and practice with immediate impact on applications as well as interdisciplinary research involving both software engineering and data engineering.

SEDE-2019 is co-located with the 32nd International Conference on Computer Applications in Industry and Engineering (CAINE-2019), both conferences being sponsored by the International Society for Computers and Their Applications (ISCA). Information about the society can be found at

Located this year in beautiful San Diego, CA, SEDE-2019 features a keynote talk by a prominent researcher, five regular paper presentation sessions, each with four or five research papers, a joint SEDE-CAINE session on the important and very actual topic of cybersecurity, as well as a joint panel, also on cybersecurity, addressing ``Issues in and Alternative Design Approaches for Security in Cyberspace".  The panel will be led by six experts in computer security from six different universities and research organizations, and will invite all SEDE-2019 and CAINE-2019 attendees to participate in related discussions.   

The SEDE-2019 conference addresses a broad range of research and practical software engineering and data engineering topics including theory, methods, applications, and tools. Each paper submitted to SEDE-2019 was peer reviewed by at least two members of the international program committee (37 members, from 12 countries and 5 continents), who judged it for originality, significance, technical contents, application contents, and presentation style. In fact, the vast majority of the papers were reviewed by three or more reviewers who provided their input in the acceptance decision process.

For this edition of the conference, we received 29 papers, of which 24 made it to the final program. We would like to take this opportunity and warmly thank all the authors who submitted their work to SEDE-2019. Their contribution to the conference has been greatly appreciated and we kindly invite them to continue to contribute to future ISCA conferences.

Furthermore, we gratefully acknowledge the professional work of the international program committee members, who have contributed substantially with their highly qualified referee reports.

We also greatly appreciate the contribution and participation of the SEDE-2019 invited keynote speaker, Dr. Lei Yang from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Nevada, Reno.

In addition, we owe great thanks to the ISCA conference organization members for their dedication and professionalism in taking care of the many aspects of conference management.

Moreover, we would like to thank the developers and other professional staff of, who made it possible for us to use the resources of this excellent and comprehensive conference management system, from the call of papers and inviting reviewers, to handling paper submissions, communicating with the authors, and creating the online volume of the conference proceedings. 

We also want to thank all presenters and attendees for actively contributing to the success of SEDE-2019. We are looking forward to excellent presentations and fruitful discussions, which will broaden our professional horizons. All participants are invited to make new friends within the ISCA community.
