On October 31-November 3, the Digital October Center hosted the 2011 Central and Eastern European Software Engineering Conference in Russia (CEE-SECR), the seventh annual research and practice conference on software development and engineering.
The conference consisted of research presentations from Russian and Western IT specialists, panel discussions, workshops, experience reports, and poster sessions. The speakers included Jeff Sutherland, co-creator of Scrum; Bertrand Meyer, creator of the Eiffel programming language; Yuri Karpov, a leading Russian expert in verification and Model Checking; and Serguei Beloussov, founder and senior partner of the venture fund Runa Capital.
CEE-SECR was also timed to coincide with several special events. These include the one-day CEE-SECR 2011: Banks Conference (October 31), and a workshop led by Jeff Sutherland entitled “Certified Scrum Master” (October 31-November 1).
The presentations were made in Russian and English with simultaneous translation.
Over the last six years, CEE-SECR has become one of the largest professional events for Russian software developers and western IT professionals. This year’s conference brought together around 1,000 people from over 20 countries worldwide. Participants included academics, researchers, programmers, system analysts, software architects, HR specialists, project managers, and technology entrepreneurs. For software companies, the conference offered an excellent opportunity to present and survey the most recent innovations, practices, and ideas in software engineering. For scientists and academics, this was a forum to present research findings and results, and to discover current IT industry needs, trends, and standards.
