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: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...

Im Focus: Quantum-physical Model System

Computer-assisted methods aid Heidelberg physicists in reproducing experiment with ultracold atoms

Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...

Im Focus: Glacier bacteria’s contribution to carbon cycling

Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.

A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
