I am one of the initiators of the International Conference on Software Language Engineering. I am serving on the steering committee of the conference along with several well-known researchers in the area of software engineering, including, * Mark van den Brand, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, The Netherlands * James Cordy, Queen's University, Canada * Jean-Marie Favre, University of Grenoble, France * Dragan Gašević, Athabasca University, Canada * Görel Hedin, Lund University, Sweden * Ralf Lämmel, Universität Koblenz-Landau, Germany * Eric Van Wyk, University of Minnesota, USA * Andreas Winter, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, Germany Dr. Eric Van Wyk and I are appointed by the steering committee to be the program co-chairs of the first instance of the conference. Thus, our role is to put together the conference's research program, including, defining the scope of the conference; writing and distributing the call for papers; building the international program committee; organizing the peer-review process of the submitted papers (July 14-August 25, 2008); making selection of the submitted papers, panel proposals, and demonstrations; creating the final conference program (August 25-September 10, 2008); inviting the keynote speakers; selecting the best conference papers; editing the conference proceedings (Springer's LNCS volume); making sure that the conference program is followed; opening and closing the conference. Later on, organizing and editing a special issue in a well-known international journal (currently, we are negotiating the arrangements with the prestigious the Science of Computer Programming journal published by Elsevier). In addition, given the SLE 2008 conference is co-located with the MODELS 2008 conference, I also plan to attend the MODELS conference. With my students, I have already submitted a paper “Model Driven Engineering of Policy-Based Service Oriented Architecture” to the main program of MODELS 2008. For this paper, we expect to receive the review of the submitted paper on July 4th, 2008. In addition, at this conference, I organize the 1st International Workshop on Non-functional System Properties in Domain Specific Modeling Languages (NFPinDSML2008): http://planet-mde.org/nfpindsml, and as chair I am expected to attend. The workshop has been approved by the MODELS 2008 conference organizers. Furthermore, given the rich workshop program of the MODELS 2008 conference, that directly fits into my research agenda, with my graduate students, I plant to submit at least one workshop papers. The submission dues for the workshops are in mid 2008.
