In the January/February 2011 issue of IEEE Software, readers will find four articles that came out of the SATURN 2010 Conference program.
The technical articles include Tony Tsakiris’ report on experiences at Ford and Olaf Zimmermann’s results from work at IBM Zurich. Tsakiris and Zimmermann were both also recipients of the outstanding presentation awards that were given for the first time in a SATURN conference in 2010. The same issue includes an insights piece from Arthur Wright about his experiences of evolving existing systems to changing business needs at Credit Suisse. Also featured in the January/February issue is a technical article by Grace Lewis from the SEI discussing engineering lessons learned from service-oriented systems.
In 2010, IEEE Software magazine and SATURN collaborated to host the sixth annual SATURN conference. These articles were part of a group of six presentations from the SATURN 2010 Conference whose presenters were invited by a technical committee to submit papers for consideration for publication in IEEE Software following the conference. The SATURN 2010 technical committee included representatives from IEEE Software and the SEI architecture-centric engineering group. Presentations were selected based on relevance to the IEEE Software audience, relevance to architecture practice, content presented, and attendee feedback.
All selected articles went through peer review by at least three reviewers, and IEEE Software selected four to go on to be published in the January/February 2011 issue of the magazine.
The same process will be repeated at the SATURN 2011 Conference, which will be held May 16-20, 2011 at the San Francisco Airport Marriott in Burlingame, California. Presenters whose presentations are selected based on attendee and technical-committee feedback will have the opportunity to receive mentoring and feedback from the experienced editorial staff and reviewers of IEEE Software for publication in a future issue of the magazine.
