Foreword: This volume contains the proceedings of the first International Conference on Software and Data Technologies (ICSOFT 2006), organized by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Communication and Control (INSTICC) in cooperation with the Object Management Group (OMG), sponsored by Enterprise Ireland and the Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal and hosted by the School of Business of the Polytechnic Institute of Setubal. The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in information technology and software development. The conference tracks are “Software Engineering”, “Information Systems and Data Management”, “Programming Languages”, “Distributed and Parallel Systems” and “Knowledge Engineering”. Software and data technologies are essential for developing any computer information system, encompassing a large number of research topics and applications: from programming issues to the more abstract theoretical aspects of software engineering; from databases and data-warehouses to management information systems and knowledge-base systems; Distributed systems, ubiquity, data quality and other related topics are included in the scope of ICSOFT. ICSOFT 2006 received 187 paper submissions from more than 39 countries in all continents. To evaluate each submission, a double blind paper evaluation method was used: each paper was reviewed by at least two internationally known experts from ICSOFT Program Committee. Only 23 papers were selected to be published and presented as full papers, i.e. completed work (8 pages in proceedings / 30’ oral presentations), 44 additional papers, describing work-in-progress, were accepted as short paper for 20’ oral presentation, leading to a total of 67 oral paper presentations. There were also 26 papers selected for poster presentation. The full-paper acceptance ratio was thus 12%, and the total oral paper acceptance ratio was 35%. In its program ICSOFT includes a panel to discuss the future of software development, by six distinguished world-class researchers; furthermore, the program is enriched by one tutorial and six keynote lectures. These high points in the conference program, involving top researchers worldwide, experts in different knowledge areas, have definitely contributed to reinforce the overall quality of the conference. The program for this conference required the dedicated effort of many people. Firstly, we must thank the authors, whose research and development efforts are recorded here. Secondly, we thank the members of the program committee and the additional reviewers for their diligence and expert reviewing. I would like to personally thank the Program Chairs, namely Boris Shishkov and Markus Helfert, for their important collaboration. The local organizers and the secretariat have worked hard to provide smooth logistics and a friendly environment, so we must thank them all and especially Mónica Saramago for her patience and diligence in answering many emails and solving all the problems. Last but not least, we thank the invited speakers for their invaluable contribution and for taking the time to synthesize and prepare their talks. A successful conference involves more than paper presentations; it is also a meeting place, where ideas about new research projects and other ventures are discussed and debated. Therefore, a social event including conference banquet was organized for the afternoon and evening of September 13 (Wednesday) in order to promote this kind of social networking. We wish you all an exciting conference and an unforgettable stay in the lovely city of Setúbal. We hope to meet you again next year for the 2nd ICSOFT, in Barcelona (Spain), details of which will be shortly made available at http://www.icsoft.org. (More)
