SaS Seminars

Software and Systems Research Seminar Series

The SaS Seminars are a permanent series of open seminars of the Division of Software and Systems (SaS) at the Department of Computer and Information Science (IDA), Linköping University. The objective of the seminars is to present outstanding research and ideas/problems relevant for SaS present and future activities. In particular, seminars cover the SaS research areas software engineering, programming environments, system software, embedded SW/HW systems, computer systems engineering, realtime systems, parallel and distributed computing, and theoretical computer science. - Two kinds of seminars are planned:

  • talks by invited speakers not affiliated with SaS,

  • internal seminars presenting lab research to whole SaS.

The speakers are expected to give a broad perspective of the presented research, adressing the audience with a general computer science background but possibly with no specific knowledge in the domain of the presented research. The normal length of a presentation is 60 minutes, including discussion.

The SaS seminars are coordinated by Christoph Kessler.

Software Engineering the Future

Dr. Colin Venters, University of Huddersfield, UK

Monday, 27 January 2020, 13:15-14:15, room Alan Turing.

Modern societies are highly dependent on complex, large-scale, software-intensive systems, which are deeply embedded in every facet of daily living. However, there are increasing concerns regarding the dangerous fragility of these systems as they operate within a highly connected ecosystem of continuous availability, which is challenging to maintain and evolve in response to the inevitable changes in stakeholder goals and requirements of the system. This raises the question of how to design more sustainable software systems that can endure. This talk explores the challenges, opportunities, and risk of designing for software longevity for pre-system understanding and post-system maintenance and evolution.

Bio of speaker:
Dr Colin C. Venters is a Reader in Software Engineering in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Huddersfield, UK. Venters was awarded a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Manchester. He is a founding member of the Sustainability Design Alliance and co-author of the Karlskrona Manifesto for Sustainability Design. His current research focuses on sustainable software systems engineering from a software architecture perspective. He is a member of the ACM and IEEE.

(No further SaS seminars in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic.)
