Introduction

FASE (pronounced like "phase"), the Forum for Advancing Software engineering Education, was started in 1991 by members of the software engineering education community in order to have a electronic forum for the dissemination and discussion of events related to software engineering education.  The original acronym for FASE was Forum for Academic Software Engineering, but was subsequently changed so that it was more inclusive to industrial and government training issues.   In more recent years, FASE also covered a wide variety of professional issues (e.g. licensing, certification, ethics, body of knowledge, and accreditation).

FASE is an independently-published newsletter, not affiliated with ACM, IEEE-CS or any other organization.  So far, 158 issues have been published.  FASE is released on the 15th of each month.

As of September 2007, FASE has 574 subscribers.

Submission Guidelines

Send newsletter articles to one of the new co-Managing Editors, Barrie Thompson barrie.thompson@sunderland.ac.uk or Helen Edwards helen.edwards@sunderland.ac.uk.  If the article is for a FASE topic where there is a guest editor, the submission should instead be to that person, according to the schedule provided.  Items must be submitted by the 8th of the month in order to be considered for inclusion in that month's issue.  Also, please see the submission guidelines immediately below.

FASE submission format guidelines:  All submissions must be in ASCII format, and contain no more than 70 characters per line (71 including trailing blanks and the new line character).  This 70-character/line format must be viewable in a text editor such as Microsoft Notepad WITHOUT using a "word wrap" facility.  All characters (outside of the newline) should in the ASCII code range from 32 to 126 (i.e. "printable" in DOS text mode).

All articles contain the viewpoints of their respective authors, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the FASE staff.
