DIREC Software engineering Meetup

We would like to invite you and your colleagues to the first Danish Software Engineering meeting under the auspices of DIREC.

Software Engineering is a core discipline when it comes to developing and maintaining technologies and infrastructures that help our society to prosper and to address climate change. Software Engineering and the quality of the development processes make sure that health, identity, and payment infrastructures work correctly, supports the operations of wind parks, and help to embed artificial intelligence and machine learning in a transparent and responsible ways in administrative procedures. Software and its engineering is, however, often taken for granted. Software Engineering research takes place as an add on to research focusing on application domains or other computer science sub-disciplines. The intention of this meeting is to make the depth and breadth of Danish Software Engineering research visible and to start a discussion among Danish Software Engineering researchers and relevant stakeholders on how to strengthen the Danish Software Engineering research and its collaboration with Industry.
