Software: Catalyst of Change
With the increasing reliance on and penetration of software into everyday lives, the need for organizations to predictably develop, acquire, and sustain high-quality software systems has never been greater. To address this need, the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is pleased to announce that it will host its first Software Solutions Conference (SSC) at the Hilton Crystal City in Arlington, Va., from Nov. 16 through 18.
Review the conference program here.
The conference is designed to focus attention on emerging technologies and technical strategies for assuring quality, timeliness, trust, and affordability in current and future software-reliant systems. These technologies and strategies are vitally important to the missions of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), government agencies, and the industry that supports them.
Highlights of the technical program include
- sessions in three tracks: Project Experiences, Research Topics/Emerging Technology, and Acquisition Practice
- a broad range of presentations on key topics including legacy-system modernization, large-scale Agile development and Agile for defense programs, system complexity, system and software testing, high-assurance software for real-time systems, systems of systems, acquisition, risk, cloud computing, decision-support systems, computing at the tactical edge, DevOps in the federal government, measurement and analysis, software architecture, software sustainment, and technical debt
- an expert-panel discussion about open systems architecture
- a summary of the SEI research program by SEI Chief Technical Officer Kevin Fall
- a question-and-answer panel discussion with senior SEI leaders
- social events and opportunities for attendees to network with industry leaders, conference speakers, peers, and experienced innovators, and to influence the SEI technical research agenda.
Registration is now open. Discounted registration will be available to U.S. government and military personnel, employees of small businesses, and attendees whose organizations send three or more people to the conference.
