Continuous Data, Innovation and Experimentation

Tid: 2018-06-15 10:00 -- 2018-06-15 12:00
Plats: NI:A0607, Niagara, Nordenskiöldsgatan 1
Målgrupp: Alla intresserade

Prior to the thesis defense of Aleksander Fabijan, the Department of Computer Science and Media Technology organizes a seminar and panel discussion on “Continuous Data, Innovation and Experimentation” with Dr. Michael Felderer, Prof. Brian Fitzgerald and Prof. Kurt Schneider who all give their perspectives on this topic. 

The seminar includes an opening by Helena Holmström Olsson (Malmö University) and Jan Bosch (Chalmers University of Technology), followed by a short presentation from each of our guest speakers focusing on state-of-the-art research and research challenges in the area of ‘Continuous Data, Innovation and Experimentation’. After their presentations we open for a panel discussion between the presenters to which we also invite the audience. 

Most welcome to the seminar and to the opportunity to meet with our distinguished guests!

Michael Felderer is an Associate professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Innsbruck, Austria as well as a guest professor at the Department of Software Engineering at the Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden. He holds a PhD and habilitation degree in computer science. His research interests are in the areas of software and security engineering with a focus on software and security testing, software quality, continuous software engineering, risk management, requirements engineering, empirical software engineering, software and security processes, software analytics, and improving industry-academia collaboration. The research has a strong empirical focus also using methods of data science and is directed towards development and evaluation of efficient and effective methods to facilitate and measure quality of software systems and processes. Dr. Felderer works in close collaboration with industry and transfers his research results into practice as a consultant and speaker on industrial conferences.

Brian Fitzgerald is a Professor and Director of Lero – the Irish Software Research Centre, where he previously held the role of Chief Scientist. Prior to that he served as Vice-President Research at the University of Limerick. He also holds an endowed professorship, the Krehbiel Chair in Innovation in Business & Technology, at the University of Limerick. His research interests lie primarily in software development, encompassing open source and inner source, crowdsourcing software development, agile and lean software development, and global software development. His publications include 15 books, and over 150 peer-reviewed articles in the leading international journals and conferences in both the Information Systems and Software Engineering fields, including MIS Quarterly (MISQ), Information Systems Research (ISR), IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (TSE) and ACM Transactions on Software Engineering Methodology (TOSEM). Prior to taking up an academic position, he worked in the software industry for about 12 years, in a variety of sectors (including finance, telecommunications, manufacturing, bespoke software development) in a number of countries (Ireland, Belgium, Germany).


Kurt Schneider is a Professor of Software Engineering at Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany (since 2003). His research interests include requirements engineering, empirical research, and communication in software projects. He studied computer science and received a doctoral degree from the University of Stuttgart. He held a PostDoc position at the Center for LifeLong Learning and Design (L3D) of the University of Colorado at Boulder, USA. From 1996 to 2003, he was a researcher and manager at the Daimler Research Center in Ulm, Germany.

Jan Bosch is a Professor of Software Engineering at Chalmers University Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. He is director of the Software Center (www.software-center.se), a strategic partner-funded collaboration between 11 large European companies (including Ericsson, Volvo Cars, Volvo Trucks, Saab Defense, Jeppesen (Boeing), Siemens and Bosch) and five universities focused on software engineering excellence. Earlier, he worked as Vice President Engineering Process at Intuit Inc. where he also led Intuit's Open Innovation efforts and headed the central mobile technologies team. Before Intuit, he was head of the Software and Application Technologies Laboratory at Nokia Research Center, Finland. Prior to joining Nokia, he headed the software engineering research group at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. He received a MSc degree from the University of Twente, The Netherlands, and a PhD degree from Lund University, Sweden. His research activities include evidence-based development, software architecture, innovation experiment systems, compositional software engineering, software ecosystems, software product families and software variability management. He is the author of several books including "Design and Use of Software Architectures: Adopting and Evolving a Product Line Approach" published by Pearson Education (Addison-Wesley & ACM Press) and “Speed, Data and Ecosystems: Excelling in a Software-Driven World” published by Taylor and Francis, editor of several books and volumes and author of a significant number of research articles. He is editor for Journal of Systems and Software as well as Science of Computer Programming, chaired several conferences as general and program chair, served on numerous program committees and organized countless workshops.

Helena Holmström Olsson is an Associate professor at the Department of Computer Science and Media Technology at Malmö University, Sweden. She received her PhD in Informatics in 2004 at University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Her research interests include agile transformation, data driven development, software ecosystems and organizational models focusing on empowerment and autonomy. She has published more than 80 refereed papers including articles in MIS Quarterly, IEEE Software, Communications of the ACM and Journal of Software Evolution and Practice. She is a senior researcher in Software Center and her research is conducted in close collaboration with companies in the embedded systems domain and in the online domain. In addition, she is involved in the ‘Wallenberg Autonomous Systems and Software Program’ (WASP) where she conducts research on autonomous systems. She is a frequent reviewer for software engineering and information systems journals and conferences and she is also a frequent member of program committees for conferences in these areas.
