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.

The Advocatus Diaboli Forum “court proceedings” play an important role in the mission of the ENASE conferences. The ADF is directly inspired by an ancient,

now discarded, mechanism within the Catholic Church whereby a so-called "Devil's Advocate" (AD) would assemble a prosecution case against candidates for

canonization to sainthood. The AD was not required to necessarily believe the prosecution case they prepared, but was required to list every possible reason

to reject the candidate's elevation. Proponents for canonization would then mount a defense, addressing each of the points raised by the AD.

Consistently with the motivating philosophy of ENASE conferences, the main agenda for ADF-s is defined as to adversarially assess claims to novelty and

utility for selected software engineering approaches or perspectives. The perspective on ADF trial at ENASE 2012 will be announced in April 2012.


ENASE 2012 will feature the Research Students Forum (RSF) – a kind of doctoral consortium. The forum will accept papers authored by research students, most

likely PhD candidates. Papers will be evaluated along the usual conference criteria, but the presentations will be given to a doctoral consortium consisting

of experienced PhD supervisors and research leaders.

The RSF recognizes that what research students usually lack in their initial stages are the research techniques and “best practices” that more seasoned

researchers often have at their disposal. We are referring to the ability to:

* Formulate a well-defined research question and express it concisely.
* Differentiate between what is novel and must be done from what is superfluous and already done.
* Avoid making bold statements, back their claims with facts or other research and construct evidence from analytical reasoning and/or empirical

* Communicate in a clear and simple way, avoiding unnecessary phrases and obscure language constructs.

All accepted RSF papers will be published in the main ENASE Proceedings, under an ISBN reference, in paper and in CD-ROM support.
