"Software Engineering 2009" at the Fraunhofer Center in Kaiserslautern

Software Technology made in Germany

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".

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
