Scope of the Symposium

The Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (Simpósio Brasileiro de Engenharia de Software - SBES, in Portuguese) is an event which integrates the academic, industrial and commercial communities.

SBES is the official event of the Brazilian Computer Society (Sociedade Brasileira de Computação - SBC) in this field and includes presentation of technical papers, invited speakers and tutorials. Previous editions of the SBES were highlighted by the presentation of high quality technical papers and the participation of important international researchers in Software Engineering. 



The 15th edition of the Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (SBES'2001) will be held at IME-RJ, in the city of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).

Rio de Janeiro is a great touristic place. IME-RJ is located at the basis of Sugarloaf access on the coast of Vermelha beach. IME headquarters appear in http://www.rio.rj.gov.br/riotur/rioingle/grai02.htm as the light pink buildings. The symposium site also faces a wonderful public footpath that surrounds the Urca Hill along the sea. 

"The height and unmistakable outline of Sugarloaf make it - together with Christ the Redeemer - one of the two main attractions offering breathtaking views of Rio. This famous landmark is reached by cablecar in two stages: first to the top of Urca Hill, where visitors catch the second car to their final destination. From the Sugarloaf, the endless beaches of Rio de Janeiro and Niterói stretch to the horizon. Set against the lush Atlantic Rainforest, the scene is dotted with historical buildings such as the Santa Cruz Fort and the miniature palace on Fiscal Island."
