The MACH case study is now accepted at the SE conference.
On December 4th, 15:00, we will have a distinguished guest speaker: Lasse Thelander from netcompany will address the audience of course 02264 to report on RE in the real world. All are welcome - see you at 306.035
Today we have released version 3.2.1 of RED, our Requirements Editor. It contains many bug fixes and productivity improvements.
We just passed 2000 hits on this site since launching it less than 2 years ago. For an academic page, getting almost 3 hits per day is pretty awesome - maybe I should start having ads! :-)
Today we have released version 3.2 of RED, our Requirements Editor. We are working to make this the last internal release, and plan to go open source next month.
The reaction to my recent call for student helpers was nothing short of spectacular: a whopping 22 people got back to me. Some of them will join on thesis projects in a little while, some are not jointing after all. But most of you are joining the group today. Welcome to all of you, and godspeed!
Today we had the Human Factors in Modeling Workshop (HuFaMo) in Ottawa, Canada, with a record participation of 25 people.
Today is the start of course 02264 (Requirements Engineering) in the autumn term 2015 - welcome everybody!
Today, the inaugural meeting of the ACM Europe council was held at the Royal Society. Several new task forces have been appointed and will resume activity in the coming months. Harald was appointed head of an effort to develop a digital communication strategy.
Today we have finalized the review process for the Human Factors in Modeling Workshop (HuFaMo), co-located to MODELS in Ottawa. Come join us for an exciting event!
Now in it's 4th installment, we are hosting the 2015 International PhD Summer School on Empirical Research Methods in Informatics. To find out more, go to the web page, look at the Facebook group of the class of 2014, or check the tweets from the class of 2015!
Today is the exam of 3 more theses - that makes 8 finished this year in our group, 2 ongoing, and 2 more lined up for later this year (plus several individual projects). We also welcome Danny and Ahmadreza, who have just started with their projects and will be finishing early next year!
The last few issues being corrected, the MACH paper is now accepted at Sci.Com.Prog.
Today is the submission deadline for the Human Factors in Modeling Workshop (HuFaMo). We are very pleased with the turnout, and are now progressing to reviewing the submissions and preparing the workshop.
Today, Harald has been elected to serve on the board of the ACM Europe Council - an exciting new initiative that aims to increase the level and visibility of ACM activities across Europe.
Every year, the Informatics societies in German-speaking countries award the price for the best Computer Science doctoral dissertation. Every Faculty in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland is entitled to nominate one candidate, and they present their thesis at the IBFI Dagstuhl, itself a prestigious place. Harald is a member of the jury, and while he cannot revela anything about the status and results so far, he can assert that the line-up was impressive this year, as every year!
Returning Björn Regnell's visit last year, Harald gives a talk at the CS colloquium of Lund University, Sweden. His topic is RE tool support, and the RED tool in particular.
Today, the MoDELS conference endorsed the 1st Workshop on Human Factors in Modeling to be on the program of this year's MoDELS conference in Ottawa. Please help spread the word for this novel format to promote empirical, human factors work in the modeling community - or submit your study!
Our paper at ICMT'15 has been accepted! The conference takes place in l'Aquila, Italy, in July. ICMT is co-located with STAF (including, e.g., ECMFA).
ACM wants to become the first truly global CS professional body. We seek to foster cooperation in Europe and support European policy makers by unbiased expertise when needed, to serve the best interest of society at large. Harald is running to become a member of the ACM Europe Council. The elections are held in May - can I count on your vote? :-)
The COMPUTE Software Group is releasing its web-page for the first time. The CSG is funded by the our department as a strategic initiative to foster the professionalisation of research prototypes. See more!
Harald is now a co-chair to the venerable PNSE workshop for 2015. This year, the focus will be on SE! See more!
Martin Wirsing (Harald's PhD supervisor back in the day) is retiring from his Chair. A large symposion was organized in his honor, complete with a LNCS-volume as Festschrift.
Today, we present a slight relaunch of the start page with a new picture to reflect the many new people that have joined since last.
At COMPUTE, we create many useful tools and data sets, but hardly anybody knows about them. The Software Group wants to change this and asks you to report any such "hidden treasures" - please go to our survey!
Today, we finally release the new page on the people in the MORE group! A number of small changes and fixes is also released, the blog is still in preparation, though.
I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas holiday. I wish you and your family a happy, successful and healthy New Year!
