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.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
