The ENASE (Evaluation of Novel Approaches to Software Engineering) working conferences provide a yearly forum for researchers and practitioners to review and evaluate new software development methodologies, practices, architectures, technologies and tools. By comparing novel approaches with entrenched traditional practices and by evaluating them against software quality criteria, ENASE conferences advance knowledge and research in software engineering, identify most hopeful trends and propose new directions for consideration by researchers and practitioners involved in large-scale software development and integration. The format of ENASE’2007 consisted of paper presentations followed by short deliberations, a session for poster papers, a panel, and the Advocatus Diaboli Forum (ADF) “court proceedings” for three novel SE approaches: agent-, agile-, and aspect-oriented software engineering. The ADF chairs were: Robert Brown (University of Wollongong, Australia) and Peri Loucopoulos
(Loughborough University, UK). The panel was entitled “Next Grand Challenges of Software Design”. It was organized and chaired by Kale Lyytinen (Case Western Reserve University, USA). Evaluations of submissions 44 papers were submitted to ENASE’2007. All of them were sent to three programme committee members for review. After a careful consideration of research contributions, 16 papers were accepted for submission of camera-ready copies with corrections suggested in the reviews. Eventually, 14 papers (32%) were admitted for the publication as full papers. Moreover, 2 short poster papers were included in the proceedings (out of 5 originally accepted). A list of reviewers for the Proceedings The reviewing process was carried out by the ENASE’2007 Program Committee members. The final decision of acceptance/rejection was strictly based on the reviews and was taken by the PC chairs: Cesar Gonzalez-Perez (Nero, Spain) and Leszek Maciaszek (Macquarie University ~ Sydney, Australia).
