ICSE 2015 - The 37th International Conference on Software Engineering

May 16-24, 2015 - Firenze, Italy




You have landed that dream job as an assistant professor; just what
you have always wanted. What now?

Becoming a new assistant professor at a university or a researcher at
a research lab is a challenge accepted with enthusiasm, energy, and
trepidation. This first position is a signal of accomplishment and the
culmination of years of dedicated effort, but it also marks the start
of another round of hard work characterized by challenges that are new
and often unfamiliar: how to establish an independent research
program; learning how to be a mentor and be mentored; balancing career
and personal life; collaborating with colleagues inside and outside
your institution; and, for those heading into academic careers,
learning how to teach.

The New Faculty Symposium (NFS) focuses on helping new software
engineering faculty members and researchers feel more comfortable and
confident in dealing with these many challenges. NFS features advice
and guidance from leading software engineering faculty and researchers
based upon their personal experiences and insights into the
contemporary community. Ample time for informal and small group
interactions allows the attendees to dig deeper into pertinent
questions and concerns.

NFS is intended primarily for those who expect to hold a position soon
or have recently started their careers.
