TÍTULO: "Collaborative Software Systems Engineering "

RESUMEN: Conventional wisdom suggests that better engineering tools lead to better engineered systems. Yet, despite an impressive and growing computer-supported tool landscape, engineering remains complex and hard to control. A problem we observe is that most existing tools cater to the needs of individual engineers and not the needs of collaborating engineering teams. These tools divide rather than unite because engineers only ever perceive the engineering process through the limited perspective of the tools they are using – often focusing on separate kinds of artifacts, tasks, and engineering disciplines. Consequently, engineers find it hard to maintain a consistent, overall view of the engineering knowledge or propagate changes across tools and disciplines. This talk explores why it is essential for all engineering knowledge to be linked and continuously checked for correctness – with far reaching benefits such as understanding the impact of design changes across tools. 

BIOGRAFÍA: Alexander Egyed is a Full Professor and Chair for Software-Intensive Systems at the Johannes Kepler University, Austria (JKU). He received a Doctorate degree from the University of Southern California, USA in 2000 and then worked for industry for many years before joining the University College London, UK in 2007 and JKU in 2008. At JKU, he built up a research institute which has a staff of over 20 people today. He is most recognized for his work on software and systems design – particularly on variability, consistency, and traceability. Dr. Egyed has published over 200 refereed scientific books, journals, and conferences with over 10K citations to date. He was recognized a Top 1% scholar in software engineering in Communications of the ACM, Springer Scientometrics, and Microsoft Academic Search. He was also named an IBM Research Faculty Fellow in recognition to his contributions to consistency checking, received a Recognition of Service Award from the ACM, numerous Best Paper Awards (COMPSAC, MODELS, ICSSP, WICSA, etc.), and an Outstanding Achievement Award from the USC. Dr. Egyed served as program chair/steering committee member (ASE, FASE, MoDELS,…) and as editorial board member (TSE, SoSyM,…).
