Measuring Success: A Seminar on Empirical Studies in Software Engineering

March 4-5, 1999
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Organized by the Software Engineering Group, National Research Council Canada
Industrial Sponsors: Mitel Corporation; Nortel Networks

Applying scientific empirical approaches to software engineering allows
developers to evaluate and improve both software and software engineering
processes. Such approaches may include measuring efficiency, collecting data,
qualitative analysis, hypothesis testing, or the comparison of different
pieces of software or processes; and have the advantage of revealing the
way things really are, as opposed to the way they are assumed to be.

       Interaction with seminar speakers
       Results from current topics and results in empirical approaches
       Learn how to apply empirical approaches to current problems
       Learn why empirical approaches are necessary
       Reveal underlying truths about your organization/process
       Get rid of assumptions about the way things work, and learn how they
really do

Who should attend - anyone responsible for:
       Managing software projects
       Maintaining or developing software systems
       Research projects in Software Engineering
       Process improvement
       Requirements engineering and/or definition
       Human resource acquisition and management

**There will be a room set aside for poster presentations for those wishing to
present work or work-in-progress**
