The fourth Joint Conference on Knowledge-Based Software Engineering (JCKBSE) will be held in Brno, Czech Republic from Tuesday September 12th until Thursday September 14th 2000.
JCKBSE aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest developments in the areas of knowledge engineering and software engineering. Particular emphasis is placed upon applying knowledge-based methods to software engineering problems. The Conference originated in order to provide a forum in which the latest developments in the field of knowledge-based software engineering could be discussed. Although initially targeting scientists from Japan, the CIS countries and countries in Central and Eastern Europe, JCKBSE warmly welcomes participants from all countries. JCKBSE 2000 will continue with this tradition and is anticipating even wider international participation. Furthermore, the scope of the conference as indicated by its topics has been updated to reflect the recent development in all the three covered areas, i.e. knowledge engineering, software engineering, and knowledge-based software engineering.
