Bright Summer School 2018 on Software Engineering and IS

For industry/company based participants  a subsidized registration fee  of USD 250 to cover teas, lunches, dinner and other logistics is required. The registration fees excludes accommodation and other expenses that may encountered.

The 2nd  Edition of the International Summer School on Software Engineering  and IS intends to provide a contribution to PhD students and academic and industrial researchers on latest findings in the field of Software Engineering and information. The invited lecturers will cover relevant topics, including Model Driven Software Engineering, Software Analytics, Software Security, and Design thinking among others.  The programme has been designed to provide both theory and hands on activities in form of workshops and interactive sessions.

Regina Hebig is an Assistant Professor at Chalmers University of Technology and the Gothenburg University in Sweden since summer 2015. Her research focuses on model-driven engineering, software processes, evolution, and quantitative measurement of software size and quality. She is one of the creators of the Lindholmen Dataset, a collection of over 20 000 open source projects that use UML models. From 2014 to summer 2015, Regina worked in a French and a European project as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris, France. She received her doctoral degree from the University of Potsdam in 2014 for her research on the evolution of model-driven engineering in practice.

Riccardo Scandariato

Associate professor in the Software Engineering division, Computer Science and Engineering.

Prof. Riccardo Scandariato received his PhD in Computer Science in 2004 from Politecnico di Torino, Italy. In 2005, he was a post-doctoral researcher at Politecnico di Torino, with the Software Engineering research group. In 2006, he joined the DistriNet research group at KU Leuven, Belgium. In Leuven, he became the leader of a team of researchers in the area of secure software. In 2014, he moved to Gothenburg (Sweden) and joined the department of Computer Science and Engineering, which is shared between the Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg. Prof. Scandariato’s main research interests are in the area of secure software engineering, with a particular focus on (i) privacy & security by design and (ii) empirical methods for security. He has published over 70 papers in the area of security and software engineering. He is an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Secure Software Engineering (IJSSE) and a member of the Review Editorial Board of Frontiers in ICT. He regularly participates to the Program Committees of several top-rated conferences in the area of security and software engineering.

I am an Associate Professor at the Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal (Canada) where I lead the SWAT team on software analytics and cloud engineering research. Prior to this position I was a Research Fellow at Queen’s University (Canada), working with the Software Reengineering Research Group and the NSERC/RIM Industrial Research Chair in Software Engineering of Ultra Large Scale Systems. I received a Ph.D in Computer Science in 2010, from the University of Montreal, under the supervision of Yann-Gaël Guéhéneuc, with the Award of Excellence. My research interests include software maintenance and evolution, cloud engineering, service-centric software engineering, empirical software engineering, and software analytics.

I also received a Master’s degree in Software Engineering from the National Advanced School of Engineering (Cameroon) and a Master’s degree (D.E.A) in Mathematics from the University of Yaounde I (Cameroon). I have experience as Software Engineer at different companies doing research, system design, and project management.

Dr. Jonas Landgren, Associate Professor at the Department of Applied IT, University of Gothenburg. He holds a MSc in informatics (1998) and a Ph.D. in informatics (2007) from University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

Jonas research interests focus on the use and design of information technology and services for crisis and emergency response. Specifically, Jonas´s research focus on how to design information technology that support sensemaking-processes in time-critical, boundary-spanning and distributed work practices.
