Workshop sessions will be held to discuss Conference themes, as well as wider issues in software engineering. The Conference Programme Committee is open to new ideas and points of view and invites the submission of proposals for additional topics to be discussed at these sessions. These proposals may be submitted by email or facsimile to the SE:E&P'98 Conference Secretariat. The workshops will be part of the regular conference program, but the number of participants for some workshop sessions may be limited to facilitate interactive discussion. Applicants with appropriate expertise and interest may write to the Conference Secretariat to participate in these sessions without submitting a paper. The intention is for the workshops to produce substantive conclusions concerning the issues of the respective topic areas. Summaries of the discussions will be included as part of the SE:E&P'98 Conference Proceedings published after the close of the Conference.
