MOSART - takes place 2/5/2016 at Concordia

posted Apr 26, 2016, 6:13 AM by Juergen Rilling

There will be two independent demo/poster sessions to make sure that the people who are presenting a tool/poster have a chance to visit the posters/demos of the other people.

Presentations - Each presentation: Maybe 2-3 slides to introduce your research group (incl. faculty members/students in the group and some research projects (topis) covered by your group)  and a 10 minutes presentation given by one of the students from your  group reporting on his/her research results.

Topics covered by MOSART: All aspects of Software Engineering!

The Center's home page went live and can be found at: 

ENCS Software Engineering Research Center Approved !

posted May 19, 2015, 1:00 PM by Juergen Rilling

Stay tuned for some additional announcements very soon.

"The Center is designed to maintain a mechanism whereby the university environment can be used to collectively promote and undertake research, education, technology development, technology transfer, and technological workforce development to innovate and improve best practices in the software engineering domain. The center will become a leading technology innovator, technology incubator, and a center for technology commercialization. The center will raise the level and profile of software engineering research to become a world-renowned and highly regarded software research center. The Center will enable coordinated software engineering research and development as well as education and training of Highly Qualified Personnel to meet the future software workforce needs in the larger Montreal area. From a more visionary perspective, the Center’s goal is to improve the effectiveness and applicability of software engineering processes and resources in order to provided added benefits to organizations and society in general.

The center will encourage collaborative work amongst member researchers through joint supervision, team grant applications, event organization and foster relationships with external and internal researchers with similar interests. As part of this mandate, the center will bring together software engineering researchers, practitioners and other stakeholders from Concordia University, other universities, other research centers and industries through various activities. The center will provide training to students in software engineering research, and engage in technology transfer among the center and industry partners. These activities will include organization of regular technical meetings and annually, larger events such as workshops, conferences, etc. and academia-industry meets.
