This paper summarizes the findings of the STEP2002 workshop on Interdisciplinary Software Engineering, which took place on the 6th and 7th of October 2002 in Montreal, Canada. The workshop considered the future of software engineering as an interdisciplinary activity by identifying ideas, models and techniques which are already used in cognate disciplines, and are deemed applicable to software engineering, with the aim of breaking down rigid barriers between disciplines, representations and processes.
