Software Center Reporting Workshop and 10 years´ anniversary

June 17 @ 10:00 - 17:00

The event will be all digital – link to Teams meeting will be published closer to the event. You can also follow the workshop over the Software Center YouTube.

In Software Center, companies and universities work together to accelerate the adoption of novel approaches to software engineering. The reporting workshop takes place twice a year, in June and December. This one day event aims at sharing results from research and cooperation within Software Center. The agenda ranges from key note presentations to in-depth sessions for themes and projects. The cooperation between academia and companies in Software Center creates the software engineering success stories that industry needs.

The focus on the workshop will be on longer, more in-depth presentations with “meaty” content and there should be ample relevant content for all communities (software, product management, systems engineering, etc.).

In 2021 we celebrate the first 10 years in Software Center and we hope to see you at the anniversary Reporting workshop!
