Workshop Structure

NCC 2001 is a full-day event, structured around theme-oriented presentations made by recognized experts in the field. Following each presentation, the workshop participants will engage in structured discussion. The idea is to foster the exchange of ideas and information in an informal setting, but with some boundaries placed on topics and time to ensure that the workshop stays on schedule.

In keeping with the theme of "Migrating to the Web," NCC 2001 focuses on issues related to reengineering legacy systems for use in an NCC environment. Of particular interest are holistic techniques for Web-enabling existing applications that integrate various reengineering aspects (e.g., code, data, and user interface reengineering) into a "whole system" modernization process. The workshop is structured around three central issues: 

  1. Decomposing legacy systems to identify logical components representing essential functionality;
  2. Developing a new Web-enabled system using these logical components; and
  3. Deploying the system in an NCC environment.

Participants of NCC 2001 were asked to submit short position papers to help ensure that all workshop attendees are actively engaged in the exchange of information, and not just silent witnesses to the event. information, and not just silent witnesses to the event. However, everyone is welcome to participate in the workshop during the day. Academics with an interest in legacy system reengineering, software evolution, and the Web will likely be enticed by the theme of NCC 2001. Industry professionals with real-world experience in areas such as Web-enabling legacy systems, securing networked applications, and using XML for component integration will find NCC 2001 a unique opportunity for an exchange of experience and ideas with others in the field.
