ISSEC, in collaboration with SSQI, SEI Carnegie Mellon and the CMMI Institute (powered by Carnegie Mellon) are calling for industry leading abstracts from system and software engineering researchers, practitioners and educators! This is your opportunity to participate and network in an international industry forum, to share your research, knowledge and experience, and gain invaluable insights into the future direction of the industry - not only nationally, but also on an international scale.
SSQI, in collaboration with the Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon and the CMMI Institute, powered by Carnegie Mellon, would like to extend an invitation for you to participate in the Improving Systems and Software Engineering Conference (ISSEC), collocating with the 10th Annual Project Management Australia (PMOz) Conference (as part of ISSEC registrations, delegates will have access to all PMOz sessions as well as ISSEC session at no extra cost), being held in at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne, 17-18 September 2013.
Following on from the success of last year, ISSEC 2013 will offer System and Software Engineers the best opportunity in their professional development and to keep their finger's on the pulse of industry innovations as well as money can't buy access to industry 'big wigs'.
Profits from ISSEC will be donated to the recently established Prof. R. Geoff Dromey Foundation and Scholarship Fund. The objective of the Dromey Foundation is to encourage research in systems and software engineering, facilitate industry applied academic research, advance and improve systems and software engineering capability and establish international collaborations.
SSQI, in collaboration with the Software Engineering Institute Carnegie Mellon, are pleased to announce Dr. Paul Nielsen will be presenting a Keynote address at ISSEC 2013!
Dr. Paul Nielsen will give a retrospective of the CERT® Program (as it celebrates its 25th anniversary):
Resiliency Lessons Learned: U.S. Hurricane Sandy 2012
