SMART Ultra-Large-Scale Systems Forum: Scale Changes Everything
Software Engineering Institute
On March 6, 2008, the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) conducted a forum, "Scale Changes Everything," on ultra-large-scale (ULS) systems in conjunction with Strengthening the Mid-Atlantic Region for Technology (SMART), a non-profit organization dedicated to integrating regional science and technology activities within Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The forum focused on the results of a recent study, Ultra-Large-Scale Systems: The Software Challenge of the Future, that was led by the SEI. Held on the Carnegie Mellon University campus in Pittsburgh, PA, the event brought experts involved in the ULS systems study together with community leaders interested in the growing trend toward ultra-large scale systems.
