Held continuously since 1983, International Conference on Software Maintenance (ICSM), is the major international conference in the field of software and systems maintenance, evolution, and management.  ICSM is the 22nd in this series of international conferences.

The 2006 ICSM will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and will be hosted by Drexel University.  Software system maintenance extends from correction of code to adaptation and enhancement of systems, design and architectures.  ICSM provides a forum for discussing the latest techniques, tools, and methodologies that support software maintenance and its ramifications.

ICSM provides an international forum for researchers, developers, and users interested in software maintenance issues.  Participants will include practitioners and researchers from industry, academia, and government.
