Experiences, innovation, and trends in software and systems engineering will be the focus at Fraunhofer IESE in Kaiserslautern when the conference "Software Engineering 2009" opens on 02 March.
"Guaranteed Quality - A Requirement of Industrial Software Development" is the motto of this meeting of experts from research and industry in the context of the well-established professional conference organized by the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. Experts from industry and research will participate in the high-level, multifaceted conference program, including Prof. Matthias Jarke from RWTH Aachen, who will deliver the keynote address.
This year, the Software Engineering 2009 conference as a platform for scientists and users will be co-organized by the chair Software Engineering: Dependability of the University of Kaiserslautern and the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering IESE. "With its diverse program for scientists and industrial practitioners, the conference will make a sustainable contribution to strengthening software technology", is the conviction voiced by Professor Peter Liggesmeyer, conference manager and director of Fraunhofer IESE.
The high-quality technical-scientific program put together by a panel of experts will be enhanced by invited talks given by leading software engineers from renowned industrial companies. The speakers will include Oliver Mäckel from Siemens AG and Dr. Eric Sax from MBTech Group, who will report on their practical experiences especially in the context of the central aspect of software quality assurance.
The large degree of interaction of this conference has a long tradition - in numerous workshops and tutorials to be held during the first two days of the conference, participants will have multiple opportunities to contribute their own expertise and participate in exchanges regarding current trends. A well-established part of the event is the Industry Day: 15 presentations by industrial users from different domains underline the practical relevance of this conference.
Approximately 200 participants from business, research, and politics are expected at Fraunhofer IESE for Software Engineering 2009. In addition to the professional aspects, the attractive social program also deserves mentioning. The conference dinner, for example, will take place at the newly renovated Hambacher Schloss - the historical "birthplace of German democracy".

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
