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

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

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.

REGISTRATION

Registration is now open until April 15th. The number of participants is
strictly limited to ensure quality interaction with the lecturers and
the rest of the audience; all applications must be accompanied by a
letter of recommendation from the applicant's supervisor or manager. A

Registration fee

The basic registration fee is EUR 850. Full-time PhD students are
entitled to a discounted price of EUR 500. A limited number of
registrations have been set aside for students of ETH Zurich at the
price of EUR 400, available first-come, first-served.The registration
fee covers participation in all lectures and other activities of the
summer school, course materials, excursions, and the conference dinner.

Accommodation

The accommodation fee is EUR 680 (double occupancy) or EUR 840 (single

Scholarships

A small number of scholarships are available for participants with
insufficient institutional support; they are primarily intended for
students and researchers from less developed countries. Participants
applying for such scholarships will be requested to certify that their
institution cannot bear the costs. Each scholarship is EUR 800, covering
