The IEEE-CS TCSE Committee on Reengineering promotes technologies for the examination of existing systems and approaches for reengineering of software systems. It is coordinating a number of activities to build up the research and educational infrastructure of the field, including the following:
The Reengineering Committee also publishes the Reverse Engineering Newsletter and it co-sponsors the Working Conference on Reverse Engineering, which has prompted significant growth in both research papers and industrial exchange on reengineering topics.
- Taxonomy Project to establish a unified taxonomy of the field,
- Resource Repository to enable sharing of tools, data, experiences, publications, and other resources and to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort.
- Outreach and Education to increase the visibility of the field and to share background knowledge and techniques.
