The Software-Centric Systems Conference (SC2) is the leading software engineering conference in the Netherlands. At SC2, professionals and decision makers in information-intensive markets share best practices in the crucial and strategic discipline of complex software development. Facilitating the exchange of knowledge and experiences, the conference helps them with the use of technology, to drive innovation and to provide insight in emerging trends. Through an inspiring program of structured and informal networking they can share ideas on how to make the software engineering process more reliable and more efficient, in order to improve the time-to-market and time-to-value.
15:30 – 17:00 hours
We will kick off with an online session with an introductory talk by Robert Howe [Lakana]:
Maybe it’s because he’s approaching his 60th birthday or because he’s been spending too much time in isolation, but Robert Howe finds he’s getting increasingly unimpressed with myopic views about software engineering. So in this introduction to the Software-Centric Systems Conference 2021, he’d like to throw down the gauntlet and challenge presenters and attendees alike to explain why the latest hot topic is so damned important.
Is machine learning really up to doing useful work? Isn’t Agile just an excuse for software engineers to avoid making delivery commitments? In a world where 99.999 percent of software already exists, what role is there for formal methods?
Join Robert on 29 June while he expresses these and others views intended to be provocative. If he’s made you mad enough, make sure you come to the real-life SC2 event on 6 October to let him know what you think.
On 6 October, we organize the live event in Eindhoven. Keep an eye on the website to stay up-to-date and we hope to meet you soon!
We are working hard on the conference program. To submit a proposal for the live event, please fill out our call for presentations.
We live in a software-driven world and virtually any company these days is a software company. Consequently, your software engineering capability is of critical importance to be successful. The key factors are speed, data and ecosystems.
