Best Paper Award (Industry Track) at ICSSP 2018

The paper Practitioners’ Eye on Continuous Software Engineering: An Interview Study (PDF) by Jan Ole Johanssen, Anja Kleebaum, Barbara Paech, and Bernd Bruegge was awarded the best paper award in the industry track of the ACM 2018 International Conference on Software and System Process (ICSSP 2018) in Gothenburg, Sweden. The definitive version of the paper is available in the ACM Digital Library.

In the paper, the authors present results from an interview study with 24 practitioners from 17 companies during 20 interviews, describing practitioners' definitions of CSE, most relevant elements for CSE, their experiences, and plans for future additions to their CSE process. The paper concludes with a model of CSE, the Eye of CSE.

SIGCSE Workshop „How to Integrate Interactive Learning into Large Classes”

We will give a workshop on the topic How to Integrate Interactive Learning into Large Classes at the SIGCSE 2017. We will present how we teach in the lectures Project Organization and Management (POM) and Patterns in Software Engineering (PSE) lecture and introduce the concept of Interactive Learning. We provide insights into the different interactive learning exercises and show hands-on examples how to apply them for classes with more than 300 students. In case you have friends or colleagues joining the SIGCSE 2017 conference, spread a word about our workshop and recommend to register for it.  The workshop will take place on Saturday March 11, 3:00 pm-6:00 pm in Seattle, Washington.  If you have any questions feel free to contact Andreas Seitz.

CPSSC'16 and CSE'16 - Review & Recordings

In February members of our chair organised the 1st International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems in the Context of Smart Cities (CPSSC'16) and the Workshop on Continuous Software Engineering (CSE’16) as part of SE 2016. Andreas Seitz and Constantin Scheuermann were responsible for the CPSSC’16 and Lukas Alperowitz together with colleagues from the RWTH Aachen were in charge for CSE’16.

The results of the CPSSC Workshop have been video recorded and are available online.

As part of the opening session, Volker Hartkopf held the keynote of the CPSSC´16 about "Campuses as Living & Lived Laboratories for Smart Cities".

After a short break, the scientific program started with the following contributions:


As part of the closing session a panel discussion with well-known experts in the area of Smart Cities, Cyber-Physical Systems and Smart Office Environments was organized. The scope of the discussion was "The Future of Smart Cities", which was moderated by Prof. Bernd Brügge, Ph.D.

Members of the Panel Discussion:

  • Prof. Dr.h.c. Volker Hartkopf, PhD, Carnegie Mellon University
  • Oliver Juli, Aspern Smart City Research
  • Prof. Dr. Ardeshir Mahdavi, Technische Universität Wien
  • Prof. Dr.-Ing. Monika Sturm, Leibniz Universität Hannover

The entire panel discussion as been recorded and is available online

Special thanks goes to Ruth Demmel and Andreas Jung for their great support during and after the CPSSC workshop, 2016.
