Software Engineering Education Symposium

18-20 November, 1998 Poznan, Poland

Registration & Hotel Reservation Deadline
12 November 1998 at 12:00 CET




Software engineering is a very important area of Informatics. Despite a real progress made in the area, the every day practice still is far from satisfactory and a lot should be done to improve it. A key issue in improving software engineering practice is education and training and key issue in improving software engineering education is getting industrial input. The symposium aims at encouraging academia and industry to work in a more long-term, strategic way to narrow the gap between what a university graduate learns as a student of software engineering (computer science) and what is expected from that graduate once she/he begins to work as a software engineer. Besides papers written by researchers and lecturers, we expect industry practitioners to write papers on how to improve the profession of software engineering from industrial point of view.

Poznan is one of the oldest towns in Poland. Its history goes back to the 10th century. In those times it was the capital of Poland. Now it is a modern town with about 600 000 inhabitants. Located in the middle of the way from Berlin to Warsaw it is an excellent place for doing business, research and for enjoying life. In Poznan there are 9 academic institutions and Poznan University of Technology is one of them.

The Scientific Centre of PAS is located in the very centre of the town, near the Opera House. Nice hotel rooms, three conference rooms of different size, and the possibility to use equipment installed in the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Centre makes the Scientific Centre an ideal place for various conferences and scientific meetings.
