The impact of Foundation/Large Models (FM) on the Software Industry and on Software Engineering (SE) is breathtaking, especially given the rapid and impactful progress in this nascent field. FMs promise to dramatically change and improve how we develop software (FM4SE) as well as the actual definition of software and the software engineering needs for this new nascent field itself (SE4FM).
As academics and practitioners alike need to prepare for the FM revolution, it is of critical importance that we kickstart a global dialogue on important strategic future directions and challenges, on important community-wide initiatives and on the shape of software and SE in the next few years. Such a dialogue requires close interactions between industry and academia.
Furthermore, young professionals and researchers require training in state-of-the-art and state-of-the-future techniques and insights that will guide the future of FM4SE and SE4FM.
On behalf of the organizing committee of FM+SE Vision 2030, we announce the FM+SE School. The School will be held on Nov 16-17, 2023 in Mexico City. The School will provide lectures and panels by leading industrial and academic experts. For more information please check the detailed schedule at https://fmse.io/school.
Location: Mexico City
Dates: Nov 16 and 17, 2023
Academic registration: The school cost is $300 USD for students and $500 USD for professors and researchers.
Industry registration/sponsorship: $1,000 USD sponsorship would provide one FREE registration as well as logo and acknowledgement on all school material and website. Please contact us if your company wishes to send several employees, however please keep in mind that space is quite limited and we wish to provide access to a wider range of groups.
Registration process: Due to limited spots, please express your interest to register at http://tiny.cc/FMSESchool by Sept 30th, 2023. Notification will be sent out by Oct 2nd, 2023 with a link to register and pay your registration. You then have one week to pay your registration fee, otherwise we will move your spot to another participant in the waiting list.
Unfortunately, we are *not* able to provide invitation letters for Mexico visas at this time. However, please check the Mexico embassy in your country as nationals from many countries might not require a visa.
