Keynote Title: Software Engineering Research under the Lamppost
Keynote Lecturer: Dr. Claes Wohlin
Keynote Chair: Dr. Armin Größlinger
Presented on: 31-07-2013
Abstract: The keynote will address some of the needs and challenges in providing industrial value and make an impact on industry developing software-intensive systems. The talk will introduce five different levels of closeness in industry-academia collaboration. A model describing the fifth level of closeness in collaboration will be described; the model is focused on long-term continuous collaboration between industry and academia. Based on experiences from using this collaborative model, a top 10 list of challenges for successful collaboration between industry and academia will be presented. Further, the talk will emphasize the necessity to conduct empirical software engineering research with industry or alternatively better understand how research conducted without industrial involvement still can be made useful for industry. The latter will be exemplified with a number of different approaches to research, where the relationship to industrial development needs to be better understood.
