Editorial Reviews

The November 1999 symposium covers both theoretical and practical topics encompassing software measurement, experimental design, qualitative analysis, stochastic modeling, and machine learning to address software engineering issues of practical importance. The 32 papers are divided into sections on setting up software measurement programs, studies of object-oriented systems, project management, novel measurement approaches, data analysis methods, maintenance studies, component off-the-shelf (COTS) studies, and technology evaluation. No subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
