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".

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.
The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...
