Co-hosted with SAICSIT’15 we have organized a Software Engineering and Software Architecture Workshop on the topic:
“Model-Driven Engineering: State of the art, research opportunities, challenges from industry”
This full-day workshop (see attached flyer) will be presented on 28 September in Stellenbosch, Cape Town. It will see Academia and Industry coming together to explore the current challenges and highlight the latest developments in software engineering and software architecture research.
Our theme this year revolves around the use of models in software engineering and software architecture, especially concentrating on the power of models as seen by a proliferation of research, yet their lack of adoption in real industry projects.
Aims of the Workshop
1. To bring together international experts in the field, researchers and practitioners, to gain insight, spawn
ideas and forge partnerships.
2. To bring Industry and Academia together in order to:
a. Highlight the challenges experienced by the Industry
b. Create awareness of the latest developments in software engineering and software architecture research
c. Forge communication channels with a view to establishing joint academic-industry research projects
3. To encourage collaboration between South African and International research groups.
The provisional programme is listed below. Further information about the aims of the workshop, the speakers and program, venue, registration, etc are contained in the attached flyer. Please spread the word amongst interested parties in industry and academia. Note that places are limited and so admission will be on a first-come first-serve basis.
