The Chair of Software Engineering is devoted to the development of methods and tools for improving software quality. Our areas of emphasis are:
- Software verification (both proofs and tests)
- Distributed and collaborative development
- Empirical software engineering
- Online learning technologies (MOOCs)
- Language design and evolution (with particular focus on Eiffel)
As part of our activities we organize events such as the annual Laser Summer School.
February 16, 2015 The second edition of our edX MOOC is starting soon!
December 18, 2014 Julian Tschannen, Yu Pei, and Christian Estler successfully defended their PhD theses. Congratulations!
December 5, 2014 The website for the LASER Summer School 2015 is now online. The topic for the 12th edition of this summer school is Concurrency: the next frontiers.
September 24, 2014 The paper A Comparative Study of Programming Languages in Rosetta Code by Sebastian Nanz and Carlo A. Furia is discussed on Slashdot and elsewhere.
August 21, 2014 Our paper Awareness and Merge Conflicts in Distributed Software Development won the Best Paper Award at the 9th International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE'14).
