General Conference Description

SEPG 2000, the 12th Software Engineering Process Group Conference, is the
premier international conference and exposition for software process
professionals.   Sponsored by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and
hosted by the Seattle Software Process Improvement Network (SPIN), this four
day event brings together international representatives from government,
industry, and academia for a truly global perspective on software process
improvement (SPI) activities and results. To ensure a broad perspective in
selecting and structuring the SEPG 2000 Conference, our program committee
includes members from 6 additional SPINs from across the U.S., each of which
has a key role in defining the technical program.      

The conference will include plenary sessions, invited and contributed
presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and informal birds-of-a-feather
(BoF) meetings. Vendor exhibits will showcase the variety of tools, methods,
and services available to help speed SPI efforts. In addition, special
off-site events will also be available to make this conference a true Seattle
experience.      
. . . . .
Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) Submissions

Birds-of-a-feather (BoF) discussion formats may range from an open forum with
no specific agenda items to prepared questions or position statements. BoF
moderators should submit a one- to two-page proposal listing the subject(s) to
be discussed and preferred format. Submissions will be considered up to and
during the days of the conference. BoF sessions will be held on the Monday,
Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings of the conference.

As a rule, those proposals received earlier will be given higher priority;
however, final BoF sessions will be determined by the amount of attendees who
sign up.

Please submit your electronic proposal by U.S. mail or email to the conference
coordinator.
