Panel: Perspectives on Software Engineering

ICSE 2001: May 18, 2001

Toronto Canada

 "This panel gives a non-standard view of the future of software engineering.  Two of the speakers are recent Ph.D. graduates in computer science, with expertise in software engineering, who have taken academic positions; as people who will educate the next generation of software engineering practitioners and researchers, they provide a key vision of the future.  The other two speakers are senior, having moved from the research community into a world in which they face the problems of engineering software on a daily basis.  Collectively, along with interactions from the audience, these two often underrepresented perspectives provide a sense of the key directions in which software engineering— practice, research, and education — should and must go."
