Prof. Walid Maalej is program co-chair of the 26th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE’18). Further, the conference chairs include Prof. Daniel Amyot (program co-chair) and Dr. Guenther Ruhe (general chair).

The RE’18 conference will be held from 20 to 24 August 2018 at the world famous Banff center in Alberta, Canada. The conference invites submissions in all areas of RE including elicitation, specification, modeling, analysis, verification, and evolution:

“The conference will offer an extensive program of interest to academia, government and industry. It will include several distinguished keynote speakers and three conference days full of papers, panels, posters and demos. A series of exciting tutorials to develop skills in and advance awareness of requirements engineering practices is of particular interest to industry. Two days of workshops as well as doctoral symposium offer forums for participants to present cutting-edge techniques and approaches in particular fields.”

 

To get an impression of the city of Banff and the Banff centre a short video on YouTube is available:

 

The call for papers includes the following categories of papers:

  • Research papers
  • RE@Next! papers
  • Data track papers
  • Industry papers

The RE’18 also welcomes submissions for:

  • Workshops
  • Tutorials
  • Panels and interactive events
  • Posters and tool demos
  • Doctoral symposium

Today it’s time to leave the Informatikum for our yearly Doctoral Camp 2017. For three days the MAST research group (Prof. Maalej and his Ph.D. students) will stay in a Swedish house near a beautiful lake in Malente. Interesting talks with intensive discussions, fun-activities, BBQ, and even an original Italian pizza workshop are waiting for our Ph.D. students.

We will shortly provide an update and are looking forward to a great Doctoral Camp 2017!

Hamburg Interdisciplinary Colloquium on Smart Sustainable Cities

Logo-6-MyriadProBold

Global warming and fast urbanization are affecting the quality of life in modern cities. Air pollution, heat, noise, and other environmental stressors are constantly harming the health and well-being of the citizens. Detailed knowledge about the environmental impacts and public resources play a significant role in a socio-ecological and sustainable city development. Our goal is to investigate whether crowdsourcing-based approaches can be used to improve urban measurement networks regarding resolution, innovative applications, and cost-efficiency.

On June 22nd, 2017, we organize the “Hamburg Interdisciplinary Colloquium on Smart Sustainable Cities” together with Dr. Dirk Bade and Dr. Benjamin Bechtel. Students from the Department of Informatics and from the Institute of Geography will come together to present and to discuss their projects.

Our research group was represented at this year’s ICSE, the 39th International Conference  on Software Engineering.

Dr. Davide Fucci presented his work originally published in Transactions of Software Engineering (TSE):

Davide Fucci, Hakan Erdogmus, Burak Turhan, Markku Oivo, Natalia Juristo: A Dissection of Test-Driven Development: Does It Really Matter to Test-First or to Test-Last? 

Daniel Martens and Timo Johann presented their work at the Second International Workshop on Emotion Awareness in Software Engineering co-organized by Prof. Dr. Walid Maalej:

Daniel Martens and Timo Johann: On the Emotion of Users in App Reviews

More information about the conference and the schedule of the presentations can be found at the ICSE website.

MOBIS’s new identity: Applied Software Technology (MAST)

hausD

With the new tenured professorship of Walid Maalej, our group gets a new identity: Applied Software Technology. The group name is changing from MOBIS to MAST. We now moved to our new offices on the same campus in House D (1st floor left side). All offices (numbered D-202 to D217) are now adjacent. The office of Prof. Maalej is D-204. As part of the new infrastructure, we have a new meeting room / lounge for globally distributed meetings, and a media room. You can find the new plan with the room assignments below. We look forward to welcome our students, collaborators, and visitors in our new offices.
