MetriKon 2009: Measurement for Software Professionals

12.10.2009
An important date is coming up for all software developers, decision makers, and engineers in the IT domain: On 19 and 20 November 2009, the software metrics conference MetriKon 2009 will take place at the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering IESE in Kaiserslautern for the third time already.

This professional conference organized by the Deutschsprachige Anwendergruppe für Softwaremetrik und Aufwandschätzung e.V. (DASMA) will offer a comprehensive program of presentations featuring contributions from state-of-the-art research and experience reports from industrial application in practice.

The keynote speakers at the beginning and end of the event will include Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Dieter Rombach, executive director of Fraunhofer IESE, and Dr. Jürgen Knoblach, director of the measurement program for monitoring electrical and electronic development of BMW Group.

Concurrently with the conference, an exhibition will be organized where service providers and tool manufacturers will present their offers in support of software measurement and cost estimation.

Professional contributions by experts in their field, hailing from institutions such as Fraunhofer IESE or the universities RWTH Aachen and Magdeburg, will be given, and reports will be delivered by experienced practitioners from renowned companies such as T-Systems, Siemens, or Daimler - to name but a few.

Furthermore, there will be an opportunity to participate in tutorials on software measurement processes and cost estimation: On the day before the conference (18 November 2009), tutorials will be held on introducing or consolidating complex software measurement and cost estimation topics or processes.

This trend-setting professional conference is the only one of its kind in Germany that focuses on measurement, and is therefore the place to meet for international specialists from industry and research. The number of participants, which continues to increase year after year, is proof of the great significance of these issues for the entire information and communication industry. In a dense program, practitioners and decision makers can obtain information about the state of the art of scientific research and get valuable ideas for their own organizational practice from the intensive exchange with application professionals from industry.

Traditionally, contributions at MetriKon conferences have comprised aspects such as comparison, introduction, and evaluation of goal-oriented software metrics as well as practical experiences with industrially used methods for estimating the development effort in software projects. Special focus will be given to quantitative project management and controlling issues as well as to ways of providing tool support for selected processes. Work done by ambitious next-generation scientists is not overlooked - which is reflected by the award given to the best diploma thesis in the area of software metrics and effort estimation. The award, endowed with 1000 euros, will be presented in the context of an evening event to be held at the end of the first conference day.

Fraunhofer-Institute for Experimental Software Engineering
Fraunhofer IESE is one of the worldwide leading research institutes in the area of software and systems development. A major portion of the products offered by our collaboration partners is defined by software. These products range from automotive and transportation systems to telecommunication and telematics equipment, from information systems and medical devices to software systems for the public sector. Our solutions allow flexible scaling. This makes us a competent technology partner for organizations of any size - from small companies to major corporations.
Under the leadership of Prof. Dieter Rombach and Prof. Peter Liggesmeyer, the past decade has seen us making major contributions to strengthening the emerging IT location Kaiserslautern.
In the Fraunhofer Information and Communication Technology Group, we are cooperating with other Fraunhofer institutes on developing trend-setting key technologies for the future.

Fraunhofer IESE is one of 60 institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Together we have a major impact on shaping applied research in Europe and contribute to Germany's competitiveness in international markets. As part of the Fraunhofer Center Kaiserslautern, the institute is officially a "Selected Landmark 2009" in the contest "365 Landmarks in the Land of Ideas".

Im Focus: Frictional Heat Powers Hydrothermal Activity on Enceladus

Computer simulation shows how the icy moon heats water in a porous rock core

Heat from the friction of rocks caused by tidal forces could be the “engine” for the hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon Enceladus. This presupposes that...

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
