In April next year, software performance engineering experts from around the world will gather in Berlin for the 9th International Conference on Performance Engineering, ICPE2018. The conference will have a great industry track program with contributions from many companies, such as Cisco, IBM, Oracle, Bosch, and LinkedIn. Topics range from energy consumption benchmarking, microservices, virtualization, software containers, distributed profiling, and software-defined networks. It should be an exciting conference with the opportunity to share experiences across companies and between academia and practice. So, book your trip to Berlin!
The annual meeting of the special interest group on “software architecture” of the German Computer Science Society called “Architekturen 2014” was held at ABB Ladenburg. The meeting’s main theme was “Architectures for Industry 4.0“. The fourth industrial revolution is expected from a reorganization of industrial production processes to exploit the capabilities of cyber-physical systems. A dozen of invited talks from researchers and practitioners gave various perspectives on the topic and how it will affect software architectures.
The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) Conference will take place at the Marriott City Center in Minneapolis from April 29 to May 3, 2013. Olaf Zimmermann and me served as program co-chairs this year. The conference features an exciting program with keynotes from Stephan Murer (Credit Suisse), Scott Berkun, and Mary Poppendieck as well as more than 30 talks from renowned industrial speakers. Early registration runs until April 1st!
Together with Ian, Jenny, Anne, and Mazeiar, I am organizing SE4SG’13, the 2nd International Workshop on “Software Engineering Challenges for the Smart Grid” at the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) 2013 in San Francisco, US. This 2nd workshop will focus on understanding and identifying the unique challenges and opportunities for SE to contribute to and enhance the design and development of the smart grid. Thanks to all members of the program committee for providing great reviews to the paper submissions. The workshop will be held on May 18th and will feature five paper presentations and a working session.
Here are the slides from my talk at WICSA 2012:
Last Monday, Paul, Steffen, and me chaired the 2nd Int. Workshop on the Quality of Service-oriented Software Systems (QUASOSS’10) at this years MoDELS 2010 conference in Oslo. About 20 participants listened to the invited talk by Prof. Dorina Petriu and 6 paper presentations. The papers and presentations will soon be hosted at the QUASOSS website.
