Aims and Scope

The KIPS Transactions on Software and Data Engineering (KIPS Trans. Softw. 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:
