Technical Briefings

Lori Clarke, The University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Carlo Ghezzi, Politecnico di Milano, Italy

The ICSE 2016 Technical Briefings Track offers conference attendees the opportunity to gain new insight, knowledge and skills in a broad range of software engineering areas. The track will feature 13 technical briefings on Tuesday, May 17 for attendees to choose from. Each 90-minute briefing is led by experts in the field on emerging areas of software engineering. A briefing typically consists of an overview of the problem and current approaches, and then describes emerging research results and future research directions. Questions from attendees are encouraged.

Attendees must register for the Technical Briefing Track and can attend all or any part of any of the briefings throughout the day.

Do you want to gain valuable technical knowledge that you can use today?

Do you want your students to get an overview of the state-of-the-art in emerging areas?

Do you want to remain competitive in your field?

Register yourself and/or your students today for the Technical Briefings!
