From May 19–26 2013, many SEI staff members participated in the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), the premiere venue for research in software engineering. The conference was in its 35th year, and ran over seven days in downtown San Francisco. You can find post-conference materials here, or here. This blog post discusses some of the activities of SEI staff in the Architecture Practices initiative. ICSE is a great opportunity for SEI technical staff to present emerging results, listen to other researchers, engage with industry practitioners, and continue the SEI’s leading role in the software engineering research community.
The highlight of the SEI’s involvement was the keynote on the final day of the conference by Linda Northrop, entitled Does Scale Really Matter? Ultra-Large-Scale Systems Seven Years After the Study (PDF). Linda gave an overview of the state of the ULS systems research field since the seminal report. This post highlight the efforts of the Architecture Practices research group. We had two papers accepted for the main conference, on rapid fielding practices and assurance case confidence.
