See you again next year in Edmonton, Canada!

ICSM is the premier international event in the software maintenance field for participants from academia, government, and industry to share ideas and experiences for solving critical software maintenance problems.

The Beijing Friendship Hotel, where ICSM 2008 (and co-located events) will be held, is located in the culture, education, and technology district of Beijing, near Peking University. As one of the largest garden hotels in Asia, it has full business and recreational amenities.

Beijing, the capital of the People's Republic of China, is a modern, friendly, world-class city of more than 15 million people, and host to the 2008 Summer Olympics. With numerous scenic and cultural attractions, visiting Beijing and China for ICSM 2008 promises to be an unforgettable experience.

We have an exciting program for ICSM 2008, and we cordially invite you to come join us in Beijing!
