LASER Summer School on Software Engineering

Leading-Edge Software Engineering
September 7-13, 2014 - Elba Island, Italy


Application deadline: March 31, 2014


The LASER summer school, organized by the ETH Chair of Software
Engineering, brings together the concepts and practice of software
engineering in the idyllic setting of the Elba Island off the coast of
Tuscany, easily reachable by air, car, bus or train.

The LASER school is intended for professionals from the industry
(engineers and managers) as well as university researchers, including
PhD students. Participants learn about the most important software
technology advances from the pioneers in the field. The school's focus
is applied, although theory is welcome to establish solid foundations.
The format of the school favors extensive interaction between
participants and speakers.

Topic and speakers

The LASER school is 10 years old! To celebrate this anniversary,
we have gone not for a narrow topic but for a selection of brilliant
speakers who will describe leading-edge research in a variety of areas
of software engineering, both conceptual and applied:

- Harald C. Gall (University of Zurich)
- Daniel Jackson (MIT)
- Michael Jackson (The Open University)
- Erik Meijer (Applied Duality)
- Bertrand Meyer (ETH Zurich)
- Gail C. Murphy (University of British Columbia)
- Moshe Y. Vardi (Rice University)
