Organizing Committee

Reflecting the inter-disciplinary nature of net-centric computing, NCC 2001 is organized by five people from four different universities: Jens Jahnke (University of Victoria), Kostas Kontogiannis (University of Waterloo), Eleni Stroulia (University of Alberta), Scott Tilley (University of California, Riverside), and Kenny Wong (University of Alberta). Collectively, the organizers have extensive experience serving on program committees and chairing international conferences and workshops, and they are active researchers in NCC-related areas.


Jens Jahnke ( is an Assistant Professor for Software Engineering in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Victoria, Canada. He received a doctoral degree with suma cum laude from the University of Paderborn, Germany. In 2000 he also received the German Software Engineering Award. His main research area is network-centric software and data evolution. He is program co-chair of the International Workshop on Softcomputing applied to Software Engineering (SCASE 2001). He serves on the Program Committee and Organization Committee for ICSE 2001 and is a program committee member for the European Software Engineering Conference (ESEC 2001). At the (18th) Annual Meeting of the North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society (NAFIPS'99), he organized a Special Session on Software Engineering (6/99). He is a member of IEEE, ACM, and NAFIPS.

Kostas Kontogiannis ( is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo. He is actively involved in various projects with IBM Canada's Center for Advanced Studies, the Network of Centers of Excellence and the Consortium for Software Engineering Research. He has a Ph.D. degree from McGill University. He is the Program Chair for the 7th Working Conference on Reverse Engineering (WCRE 2000), the Program Chair for the Dagstuhl Symposium on Interoperability of Reengineering Tools in January 2001, and the Program Chair for the 9th International Workshop on Program Comprehension (IWPC 2001).

Eleni Stroulia ( obtained her B.Sc. degree from the University of Patras in Greece and her M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the College of Computing, Georgia Institute of Technology. She is currently an Assistant Professor with the Computer Science Department at the University of Alberta. Her current research focuses on importing artificial-intelligence methods to problems related to reengineering software systems for the purpose of web migration, including modeling the legacy interfaces, reengineering the legacy system user interface, example-based learning of wrappers for Web-based applications, and application integration on the World Wide Web. She is the program co-chair for the Fourteenth Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence, and also the co-chair of a CASCON workshop on "Topics on Reengineering Legacy Systems to the Internet." She is a member of ACM, IEEE, and AAAI.

Scott Tilley ( is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Riverside. He is also Principal of S.R. Tilley & Associates, a Southern California-based information technology consulting boutique, and a Visiting Scientist with the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. He has a Ph.D. in from the University of Victoria. He is the past Program Chair for the 6th International Workshop on Program Comprehension (IWPC'98), the Program Chair for the 19th Annual ACM International Conference on Systems Documentation (SIGDOC 2001) and the General Chair for the 3rd International Workshop on Web Site Evolution (WSE 2001).

Kenny Wong ( is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computing Science at the University of Alberta. He received a Ph.D. degree from the University of Victoria. His main area of research is software evolution and integration. He has investigated concepts and techniques to develop and evaluate flexible and extensible program understanding environments. This experience includes conducting user studies, building and using integrated environments for reverse engineering, and exploring a conceptual framework for continuous, incremental program understanding. Currently, he is the ICSE 2001 organizer responsible for the web site and advertising, and member of the program committees for SIGDOC 2001 and WSE 2001. He is also a member of the ACM, IEEE CS, and USENIX.
