LASER Summer School on Software Engineering - call for participation

-------------------------------------------------------------

LASER Summer School on Software Engineering
Practical Techniques of Software Quality
Elba, Italy
September 12 - 18, 2004

http://se.inf.ethz.ch/laser
-------------------------------------------------------------

Call for Participation

SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

Research in software engineering is currently making steady progress,
too much of which remains unknown to practictioners. The aim of the
LASER school is to distribute the results of that research to a wider
audience and in turn to foster the appearance of new ideas. The school
is intended for both PhD students and for professional software
engineers and managers who want to benefit from recent advances in
software technology.

The LASER school is sponsored by ETH Zurich as part of an effort to
establish a Laboratory for Applied Software Engineering Research. As the
name suggests, the focus is resolutely practical, although theory is
welcome to establish solid foundations.

The 2004 LASER school brings together six of the best experts in the
field, from Europe, the US and Australia. Each will present a series of
six lectures on his or her latest research efforts. The six speakers for
2004 are Jean-Raymond Abrial, Ernie Cohen (Microsoft Research), Erich
Gamma (IBM), Bertrand Meyer (ETH/Eiffel Software), Carroll Morgan
(University of New South Wales) and Pamela Zave (AT&T).

The school takes place in the wonderful setting of the Island of Elba,
off the coast of Tuscany, easily reachable through Pisa and Marina di
Campo airports. Along with an intensive scientific program, participants
will have time to enjoy the natural and cultural riches of this
history-laden jewel of the Mediterranean.
