The objective of the International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering (ISESE) is to provide a forum where researchers and practitioners can report on and discuss new research results in the area of empirical software engineering. This conference was previously held in Nara, Japan and Rome, Italy moves to the United States for 2004. For the first time, the conference will be held in the United States in Redondo Beach California at the Redondo Beach Crowne Plaza Marina and Hotel.

The symposium encourages the exchange of ideas to understand, from an empirical viewpoint, the strengths and weaknesses of software engineering technologies. The symposium focuses on the processes, design and structure of empirical studies as well as the results of specific studies. These studies may vary from controlled experiments to field studies, from quantitative to qualitative studies.

Selected papers will be published in “Empirical Software Engineering: An International Journal” (http://www.kluweronline.com/issn/1382-3256).
