Bright Summer School 2017 on Software Engineering and IS

The 1st 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. The invited lecturers will cover relevant topics, including: Model Driven Software Engineering, Software Engineering in Health, Software Startups among other areas.


Michel R. V. Chaudron
Professor Chalmers & Gothenborg University

Michel Chaudron studied Computer Science in Leiden for both his M.Sc. and Ph.D.
degree. He obtained his Ph.D. in the area of formal methods and
programming calculi for parallel computing (promotor: Prof. Dr. Ir. F.J.
Peters). During his studies he spent one year at the programming
research group in Oxford (tutor: Prof. C.A.R. Hoare) and one semester at
Imperial College, London. After his studies in Leiden, he has worked
for CMG (now CGI) in The Hague and the TU Eindhoven.

His research interests are in: software architecture, software design
and software modeling with a special focus on UML, software composition.
He likes to study these topics through empirical research methods. His
current project aims to combine Big Data with Semantic Technologies for
System Design Understanding. He actively supports several conferences
and journals including (Conf:) MODELS and Euromicro SEAA and (Jnl:)
SoSyM and Empirical Studies in Software Engineering (EMSE).

Dr. XiaoFeng Wang
Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
Topic: Software Startups and Innovations

Dr. Xiaofeng Wang is a lecturer and researcher of software engineering and information systems at FUB, where she teaches Software Architecture, Software Factory and Lean Startup courses to bachelor and master students. Before joining FUB, she worked in Lero, the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre as a postdoc. She has more than 10 years of experience in agile and lean software development research. She is
actively publishing in both software engineering and information systems venues, including IEEE Software, Journal of Systems and Software, Information Systems Research, etc. She is also active in serving various Software Engineering and Information Systems conferences.
