Lero is a hit at Oscars of software engineering world

22 May 2009

The Science Foundation Ireland-backed Irish Software Engineering Centre known as Lero has presented nine papers at the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), otherwise known as the Oscars of the software engineering world.

Having the nine papers accepted brings Lero to the forefront of software engineering globally.

The ICSE, which is taking place in Vancouver this week, provides a forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences and concerns in the field of software engineering.

Researchers at Lero have submitted papers addressing a multitude of areas, including practical service-based computing in distributed embedded automotive systems, improving software risk management in a medical device company, as well as the cognitive levels employed by programmers during software maintenance.
