SUITE has emerged to become a successful series of workshops. The first edition was held at ICSE 2009 in Vancouver (Canada), the second edition at ICSE 2010 in Cape Town (South Africa), and the most recent third edition took place in Honululu (Hawaii). Here are the links to these previous editions of the workshop:
