Aims and Scope


The KIPS Transactions on Software and Data Engineering (KIPS Tr. Software and Data Eng.) is an official journal of the Korea Information Processing Society (KIPS). It is committed to publishing peer-reviewed papers on the state-of-the-art of software and data engineering. Theoretical research presenting new techniques, concepts, or analyses, and applied contributions describing experiences and experiments with working systems are published. The topics covered by the journal include:

- Software Engineering: software engineering methods and practices, requirement engineering, software design methods, software process modeling, software maintenance and evolution, software test, software reuse, formal methods, reverse engineering, automated software engineering tools, SW Globalization, Internationalization, Agile SW Development Methodolgy, SW Development, SW Process Improvement, SW Qulity, Product-line engineering, SW reuse

- Data Engineering: data engineering methods and practices, data modeling and management, data integration, data engineering tools, database systems, knowledge discovery and data mining, data engineering applications

- Artificial Intelligence: artificial intelligence methods and practices, automated planning, machine learning, soft computing, knowledge representation, reasoning under uncertainty, multiagent systems, natural language processing, high-level computer vision, fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms, intelligent systems and applications
