Mary Poppendieck, award-winning author and expert on Lean software development, will deliver a keynote address at the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute’s annual software architecture conference. The SEI Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) 2013 Conference, which will be held April 29 through May 3, 2013, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, will feature three keynote addresses by leaders in the field of software architecture.
For more than 10 years, scientists, researchers, and engineers used the TeraGrid supercomputer network funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to conduct advanced computational science. The SEI has joined a partnership of 17 organizations and helped develop the successor to the TeraGrid called the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). This post at the SEI blog, which is the first in a multi-part series, describes SEI work on XSEDE that allows researchers open access—directly from their desktops—to the suite of advanced computational tools and digital resources and services provided via XSEDE. This series is not so much concerned with supercomputers and supercomputing middleware, but rather with the nature of software engineering practice at the scale of the socio-technical ecosystem.
SEI Contributes to a National Supercomputing Initiative, at SEI blog.
In 2013, the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) software architecture onference will celebrate its 9th year. Each year SATURN attracts an international audience of practicing software architects, industry thought leaders, developers, technical managers, and researchers to share ideas, insights, and experience about effective architecture-centric practices for developing and maintaining software-intensive systems.
Pittsburgh, Pa., March 19, 2012—The Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute (SEI) has announced the keynote speakers for the upcoming SEI Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) 2012 Conference to be held May 7-11, 2012, at the St. Petersburg Bayfront Hilton Hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida. Three software engineering and software architecture thought leaders will keynote the SATURN 2012 Conference: Andy Hunt, co-founder of The Pragmatic Programmers, LLC, an Agile publishing and training company; Michael Stal, principal engineer at Siemens Corporate Research and Technologies; and Douglas C. Schmidt, professor of computer science at Vanderbilt University.
Evaluating software architectures is a critical part of software architecture life-cycle processes. The book Evaluating Software Architectures: Methods and Case Studies covers the software architecture evaluation topic in detail focusing on evaluation frameworks such as Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM), Software Architecture Analysis Method (SAAM), and Active Reviews for Intermediate Designs (ARID). The authors also discuss in the book some case studies in applying these frameworks as well as comparison of the software architecture evaluation methods.
InfoQ spoke with Rick Kazman, Visiting Scientist at Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and a co-author of the book, about the significance of evaluating software architectures and how to perform the architecture evaluations in Agile and Lean software-development organizations. They also talked to him about the emerging trends.
The mission of the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is to improve the practice of software engineering worldwide. The SEI Research, Technology, and System Solutions (RTSS) Program conducts and applies research on the structure and behavior of systems. Working at the SEI provides staff members with the opportunity to build a strong reputation in their chosen fields, interact with world-class colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University, and have a seminal and lasting influence on an emerging body of technical research and practice.

On Thursday, February 24 from 1:30 to 2:30 PM EST, Grace Lewis of the SEI will present a free SEI webinar, titled “Emerging Technologies for Software-Reliant Systems.”
Lewis is one of seven theme leaders for SATURN 2011, which will be held on May 16-20 at the San Francisco Airport Marriott in Burlingame, California. She recently wrote a blog post about SOA and cloud computing, the theme that she is leading for SATURN 2011. This webinar and others are our way of introducing readers to the themes that will be covered at SATURN 2011. Registration for SATURN is now open.
About the Webinar
Software-reliant systems of systems (SoS) now tend to be highly distributed software systems, formed from constituent software systems that are operated and managed by different organizations. Continue reading
Designing automation products for better usability can produce obvious benefits for users.
But it can also lead to savings for automation vendors. One example can be seen in work done recently by Pia Stoll, an industrial software systems researcher at ABB Corporate Research, in Vasteras, Sweden, in conjunction with researchers at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), in Pittsburgh.

As the second SATURN 2010 Conference day came to a close, we gathered to recognize two outstanding presenters during the first-ever IEEE Software SATURN Awards.
The IEEE Software SATURN Awards were created to honor the best and brightest presenters for their contributions to architecture-centric practices. Recipients of the awards were selected by attendees vote during the SATURN 2010 Conference. The honorees include
Anthony Tsakiris, Ford Motor Company
Managing Software Interfaces of On-Board Automotive Controllers
IEEE Software SATURN 2010 Architecture in Practice Presentation Award
Awarded to the presentation that best describes “lessons learned” in applying architecture-centric practices. The lessons and ideas described can be applied by others and help them to improve their use of architecture-centric practices.
Olaf Zimmermann, IBM Research GmbH
An Architectural Decision Modeling Framework for SOA and Cloud Design
IEEE Software SATURN 2010 New Directions Presentation Award
Awarded to the presentation that best describes ideas on the horizon where architecture-centric practices can assist innovation and change in today’s practices to deliver better systems faster.
Please congratulate these outstanding SATURN 2010 presenters as you see them.
