Software Engineering (SE) is an important discipline and it is part of almost all curricula in Computer Science of universities.

Challenges in today’s software development industry include increasing system complexity, projectmanagement, shorter development cycles, shorter timeto market, dealing with continuous changes, integrationand deployment and expected high quality of the software.

As educators we are challenged to keep up with the emerging trends, to identify suitable software engineering techniques, and to incorporate them into our class offerings.
Software engineering education has to deal with these challenges. How can we prepare students or employees to these challenges?

What are best practices to help them to work indifferent domains, ranging from app development for mobile devices to the development of really big applications for main frame systems, from game development to working on highly secure systems?

How can we support students in their student life cycleand how can we prepare them for lifelong learning?

How can we ensure that future software engineers meet industrial needs, with respect to technical as well as softskills?

At least one author of an accepted paper must register and attend the conference to present and discuss the paper. The paper will not be included in the conference proceedings if it is not presented at the conference.

Topics of Interest include but are not limited to
SE curriculum design
New methods, techniques, best practices, and experiences in education
Illustrative examples to highlight SE topics ineducation
Evaluation and assessment of students’ skills that are relevant for SE
Learning assessments
Tools for education, both commercial and public domain
Learn Management Systems (LMS)
Learner Model and Learn Path
Application of AI/ML methods in LMS
Social and cultural issues in SE education
Games and social media in education
