The International Summer School on Leading Edge Software Engineering intends to provide a contribution to academicians, researchers and practitioners and IT industry software designers and developers on latest findings in the field of Software Engineering.
The invited lectures are from internationally recognized research leaders and will cover very relevant topics for the scientific community, including cloud and service-oriented architectures, web engineering, model driven software engineering, design patterns, software refactoring, reverse engineering and reengineering, mining software repository, empirical software engineering, collaborative software development, and social and human aspects of software engineering.
The program of the school will aim at creating discussion forums between lecturers and industrial and academic attendees. Models & methods, Tools and Technologies and Case Studies & applications will enrich the participants to gain more knowledge in this domain and would encourage to further stimulate the discussion.
