Lero, the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre, has been invited to present nine papers at a worldwide forum for professionals involved in all aspects of software engineering research.

Lero has been asked to attend the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) in San Francisco, California, from 18–26 May.

More than 1,000 academic, industrial and governmental researchers from dozens of countries are expected to attend the conference.

Lero researchers will present papers covering many aspects of software engineering, including agile methods, medical devices and adaptive privacy.

“This is the primary event, or World Cup, for software engineering and it is a tribute to the quality of our research team that Ireland is so well represented,” said Prof Mike Hinchey, director of Lero.

“Located so close to Silicon Valley, the conference will further enhance Ireland’s reputation as a European high-tech centre.”

Researchers, practitioners and educators will present, discuss and debate the most recent trends, innovations, experiences and challenges in the field of software engineering.

ICSE 2013, the 35th in the conference series, encourages contributors from academia, industry, and government to share cutting-edge software engineering ideas with other leaders in the field.
