1. Title: Speed, Data and Ecosystems: Excelling in a Software-Driven World

    Keynote Lecturer: Jan Bosch

    Presented on: 25/07/2017, Madrid, Spain

    Abstract: We are living in the most exciting time in the history of mankind. The last century has seen unprecedented improvements in the quality of the human condition and technology is at the heart of this progress. Now we are experiencing an even bigger leap as we move towards a new level of digitisation and automation. Ranging from self-driving cars to factories without workers to societal infrastructure, every sensor and actuator is becoming connected and new applications that enable new opportunities are appearing daily. The fuel of this emerging connected, software-driven reality is software and the key challenge is to continuously deliver value to customers. The future of software engineering in this context is centered around three main developments: Speed, Data and Ecosystems. The focus on speed is concerned with the constantly increasing rate of deploying new software in the field. This continuous integration and deployment is no longer only the purview of internet companies but is also increasingly deployed in embedded systems. Second, data is concerned with the vast amounts of information collected from systems deployed in the field and the behavior of the users of these systems. The software-intensive systems industry needs to significantly improve its ability to exploit the value present in that data. Finally, ecosystems are concerned with the transition in many companies from doing everything in-house to strategic use of innovation partners and commodity providing partners. The keynote addresses these three main developments, provides numerous examples from the Nordic and international industry and predicts the next steps that industry and academia need to engage in to remain competitive.

  2. Title: Data-Driven Genomic Computing: Making Sense of the Signals from the Genome

    Keynote Lecturer: Stefano Ceri
    Presented on: 24/07/2017, Madrid, Spain

    Abstract: Genomic computing is a new science focused on understanding the functioning of the genome, as a premise to fundamental discoveries in biology and medicine. Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) allows the production of the entire human genome sequence at a cost of about 1000 US; many algorithms exist for the extraction of genome features, or "signals", including peaks (enriched regions), mutations, or gene expression (intensity of transcription activity). The missing gap is a system supporting data integration and exploration, giving a “biological meaning” to all the available information; such a system can be used, e.g., for better understanding cancer or how environment influences cancer development.The GeCo Project (Data-Driven Genomic Computing, ERC Advanced Grant, 2016-2021) has the objective or revisiting genomic computing through the lens of basic data management, through models, languages, and instruments, focusing on genomic data integration. Starting from an abstract model, we developed a system that can be used to query processed data produced by several large Genomic Consortia, including Encode and TCGA; the system employs internally the Spark engine, and prototypes can already be accessed from Cineca or from PoliMi servers. During the five-years of the ERC project, the system will be enriched with data analysis tools and environments and will be made increasingly efficient.Among the objectives of the project, the creation of an “open source” repository of public data, available to biological and clinical research through queries, web services and search interfaces.

  4. Keynote Title: Elastic Systems - Towards a New Paradigm for Distributed Systems
    Keynote Lecturer: Schahram Dustdar
    Presented on: 24/07/2016, Lisbon, Portugal
    Abstract: This talk, which is based on our newest findings and experiences from research and industrial projects, I will address one of the most relevant challenges for a decade to come: How to integrate the Internet of Things with software, people, and processes, considering modern Cloud Computing and Elasticity principles. Elasticity is seen as one of the main characteristics of Cloud Computing today. Is elasticity simply scalability on steroids? This talk addresses the main principles of elasticity, presents a fresh look at this problem, and examines how to integrate people, software services, and things into one composite system, which can be modeled, programmed, and deployed on a large scale in an elastic way. This novel paradigm has major consequences on how we view, build, design, and deploy ultra-large scale distributed systems.

  5. Keynote Title: Exploring the Temporal Aspects of Software Architecture
    Keynote Lecturer: Henry Muccini
    Presented on: 25/07/2016, Lisbon, Portugal
    Abstract: While my parents look at software and machine running them as an enigma, my kids grow with smart things around them.Just two generations apart dividing monolith centralized applications too difficult to be perceived (since running on dedicated mainframes), to distributed, decentralized, mobile ecosystems so pervasive to be perceived.Software applications have radically changed and are continuously changing. Their architectures are changing as well.This seminar looks at what can be learned from our software architecture history, studies and experience, in order to architect new generation software.After focusing on the classical principles of software architecture design, I will focus on model driven approaches for architecture description, on continuous architecting processes, towards the implications of architecture design decisions.

The purpose of ICSOFT - since 2013 designated as the International Joint conference on Software Technologies - is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners working in areas that are either related to new software paradigm trends or to mainstream software engineering and applications. ICSOFT is composed of two co-located conferences, each specialized in the aforementioned areas. Together, ICSOFT-PT and ICSOFT-EA aim at becoming a major meeting point for software engineers worldwide.
