Forum for Advancing Software Engineering

Serving the Software Engineering Education, Research, Professional, Training, and Volunteer Communities Since 1991

Table of Contents


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 an 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 of industrial and government training issues (which led to a co-editor in that area). In recent years, FASE has also covered a wide variety of professional issues (e.g. licensing, certification, ethics, body of knowledge, and accreditation), which has also led to the addition of yet another co-editor for this area.

In 2003, FASE is now encompassing all aspects of software engineering.  Now FASE is the Forum for Advancing Software Engineering.





If you are not a member of TCSE and wish to receive FASE, write to <lyris@lyris.acs.ttu.edu> and, in the text of your message (not the subject line), write: subscribe fase <Your Name>.  So for instance, if your name is Jane Smith, write

   subscribe fase Jane Smith

Subscriptions may also be maintained through the Web via http://lyris.acs.ttu.edu.  From there, click on "TTU Faculty Mailing Lists", (not "TTU Departmental Mailing Lists"), and then either "fase" or "fase-talk" (see below), depending on which list you desire.

FASE-TALK is a discussion list.  To join the FASE-TALK list, write to <lyris@lyris.acs.ttu.edu> and, in the text of your message (not the subject line), write: subscribe fase-talk <Your Name>.  You may also view past email messages by going to http://lyris.acs.ttu.edu.
