Abstract: Software Engineering Standards
Ada has long been touted as the standard language for software engineering.
However, the corpus of software engineering standards is completely distinct
from Ada and is developed and maintained by distinct standards
organizations. This presentation will survey the software engineering
standards of the two major providers, IEEE and ISO/IEC JTC1/SC7. The
presentation will describe the scope of the standards, their status, and
the process by which they are created. Opportunities for participation will
also be described.
Presenter: Jim Moore, from The MITRE Corporation:
The presenter, Jim Moore, is a winner of the Outstanding Ada Community
Contribution Award. Wearing another hat, though, he plays key roles in the
two organizations mentioned above. He is the Head of the US Delegation to
ISO/IEC JTC1/SC7 and he is a member of the Management Board of the IEEE
Software Engineering Standards Committee. His email address is:
