FAMECSE was organized by SECC in June 2022 in Egypt, Uganda, and online, with the aim to support and strengthen the software engineering community on the regional front.
 
The report highlighted that 11 software engineering research papers were discussed and accepted. Submitted papers were presented to FAMECSE technical committee.
 
The papers addressed a number of topics, including the role of enterprise architecture (EA) in the digital age, blockchain analytics architecture for FinTech, smart university reference architecture, and Agile requirements engineering with prototyping and enriched user stories.
 
Academic experts and researchers from Egypt, Uganda, Tunisia, The Netherlands, and Rwanda submitted papers on other topics.
 
FAMECSE first edition was held under the theme “Software Engineering in the Era of AI.” The Conference was aimed at exploring how innovation in software engineering can support the development of AI, and how this technology can provide innovative solutions to advance software engineering practices and techniques.

Prominent figures, practitioners, researchers and thought leaders in the software engineering field participated in the Conference, along with specialists in modern technology trends and best practices of emerging technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI).
 
More than 600 specialists and professionals from 27 countries attended FAMECSE in-person at its venues, including Sultan Hussein Kamel Palace in Cairo, the College of Computing and Information Sciences' conference hall, and Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Others participated online through Hopin platform.
 
FAMECSE 2022 was organized in collaboration with Makerere University and ACM Special Interest Group on Software Engineering (SIGSOFT). The sponsor list included Giza Systems, Huawei, Xceed, OpenUK, and Fixed Solutions.
