• At the International Conferences of Software Engineering (ICSE) in 2000 in Limerick, there were a special track on the "Future of Software Engineering". Here, different renowned researchers in the field of Software Engineering were asked to give an overview on the state of the art in their research domain and to describe a kind of research roadmap for the next years.

Your task:

  • The goal of this seminar is to study these papers which were written more than 20 years ago and to understand, what have been the main open issues identified at that time. After having summarized this in your seminar work, you are asked to pick some research questions and to find out which new research contributions of the last 20 years provide (partial) answers to those research questions.

Initial Meeting:

  • Date: Thursday, 13th April 2023, 13:15
  • Room: ZM2.A.00.07
