    12th International Conference on Evaluation and Assessment in Software Engineering (EASE)

    University of Bari, Italy, 26 - 27 June 2008

    The International Conference on Evaluation and Assessment in Software Engineering provides a forum for discussion and exchange of experiences among researchers who present their research results and discuss issues related to empirical and evaluation studies in a workshop-like atmosphere in which papers are presented and time is allowed for constructive discussion of their results and processes. The 12th edition (EASE 2008) has been hosted by the Department of Informatics at the University of Bari, Italy.

    This year's papers have addressed topics including systematic literature reviews, case study planning and execution, formal experiments, effort estimation, lessons learnt, architecture evaluation and empirical software engineering.

    We received 38 submissions from countries all over the world. Each paper was reviewed by three members of the Program Committee and 18 were accepted for presentation at the Conference and inclusion in the Proceedings.

    In addition to research papers we have two keynote speeches, one for each day of the conference: the first by Prof. Roel Wieringa, Chair of Information Systems at the University of Twente Netherlands, is on the roles of empirical research in software engineering; the second, by Prof. Mario Piattini, full professor at the Information Systems and Technologies Department of the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha Spain, is on the evaluation and assessment of UML models.

    We want to thank all of those who have contributed to the set up and running of this year's conference: the authors for submitting their papers, the Program Committee members for their valuable work in reviewing and selecting the papers and in promoting the conference, the organising committee together with all the people that helped in arranging the conference. We also would like to thank all the organisations that have sponsored the event and the Department of Informatics, University of Bari for hosting the event.

    We finally thank all the attendees of the conference for making it a successful event, and hope you find the program interesting and enjoy your stay in Bari.
