Our research group was represented at this year’s ICSE, the 40th International Conference on Software Engineering. The conference took place from May 27 until June 03 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Dr. Davide Fucci published his work “Sensing Developers’ Emotions: The Design of a Replicated Experiment“ at the 3rd International Workshop on Emotion Awareness in Software Engineering (SEmotion), co-authored with Daniela Girardi, Filippo Lanubile, and Nicole Novielli from University of Bari.
Further, Dr. Davide Fucci presented a poster on “The Effect of Noise on Requirements Comprehension”, with Simone Romano, Giuseppe Scanniello, Natalia Juristo, and Burak Turhan.
Daniel Martens and Walid Maalej presented their work “ReviewChain: Untampered Product Reviews on the Blockchain“ at the 1st International Workshop on Emerging Trends in Software Engineering for Blockchain (WETSEB).
Yen Dieu Pham presented her work “A First Implementation of a Design Thinking Workshop During a Mobile App Development Course Project“ at the 2nd International Workshop on Software Engineering Education for Millennials (SEEM), co-authored with Davide Fucci, and Walid Maalej.
More information about the conference and the schedule of the presentations can be found at the ICSE website.
Those that follow us already for a while know about our strong connection and contributions to the field of Requirements Engineering. With the received grant and responsibility in one of our current projects, OpenReq, and our chairholder Prof. Dr. Walid Maalej being the PC-Co Chair of the 26th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference, we wanted to contribute to the RE community even more by running an RE symposium.
We are happy to report that the 1st Hamburg Requirements Engineering Symposium was a great success! Seven speakers from around the world discussed a wide range of topics with about ~40-50 participants, 10 from industry, 15 researchers, and the rest students.
On a sunny day, we welcomed all participants on our campus with snacks and drinks to be prepared for the presentations and discussions. The symposium began with introductions from Prof. Dr. Walid Maalej and Prof. Dr. Frank Steinicke. Between the two of them, we learned of the importance behind RE practices and research, and the history and prominence of the University of Hamburg.
Following the introductions, there were then presentations from top researchers in Requirements Engineering. Here is a photo recap of the presentations:
Günther Ruhe — Asymmetric release planning
Kelly Blincoe — Modern software development: the stress and social pressure
Liliana Pasquale — Topology Aware Adaptive Security
Martin Glinz — How much RE do we need?
Daniel Amyot — Evidence-Driven Evolution of Regulatory Requirements with Goal Models and Watson Analytics
Anna Perini — The SUPERSEDE project
Lloyd Montgomery — Conducting Research Industry Partnerships using Design Science: a Case Study with IBM
In an effort to encourage networking, an outdoor snack-and-chat venue was provided. This venue was met with plenty of good conversation, absorbed Hamburg sun, and in-depth discussions regarding the presentations that occurred.
The RE Symposium was concluded by going downtown to experience some Hamburg cuisine, and continue the discussions and networking.
Overall the RE Symposium was a success and an event that will likely be repeated in the future. Thank you to all who participated, and a special thanks to the sponsors of the event:
