Software pervades the growing web of computers, communications, personal and commercial services, financial and public services, and entertainment services, evolving into the global electronic community of the 21st century. Providing timely, cost-effective, high-quality software for the diverse stakeholders of this community will require the best possible technology and practices the software engineering community can provide.

ICSE 99 provides a number of linked forums for bringing together software engineering practitioners and researchers to present and discuss the most promising approaches for meeting these challenges. The forums include the main conference May 19-21, 1999, and associated special-topic workshops, symposia, and tutorials May 16-18 and May 22. The ICSE 99 main conference will include refereed technical papers, invited industry presentations, panels, exhibits, and leading keynote speakers. Featured keynote speakers will include Dr. Alan Kay, Vice President and Disney Fellow, Walt Disney Imagineering; Dr. Butler Lampson, Architect, Microsoft Corp.; and Dr. William Wulf, the first software engineer to serve as President of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering.

The conference will be organized around four main subthemes:

Besides these topics, contributions are also encouraged in the full range of software engineering topics.
