Title:Part I - Stefano Russo “A short trip into the first 50 years of software engineering”
Date: February 15, 2019 (Friday)
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Venue: Room 121, 1/F, Ho Sin-hang Engineering Building, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shatin, N.T.
Speaker: Prof. Stefano Russo

The term Software Engineering is reported to have been coined in 1968. Nowadays, software has become pervasive, and many software systems are among the most complex systems ever built by the human being. This short seminar will "fly over" the fundamental concepts, the stages, the achievements and some broken promises of the discipline in its first 50 years, trying to figure out if it is mature enough to keep the pace of evolution of next generation software systems.



Stefano Russo is Professor of Computer Engineering at the University of Naples “Federico II”, where he leads Dependable Systems and Software Engineering Research Team (www.dessert.unina.it), teaching courses on Software Engineering and on Distributed Systems. He co-authored over 160 papers on software engineering, software dependability, middleware technologies, and mobile computing. He is associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing, and Senior Member of IEEE.
