(Software Engineering Doctoral Symposium)


The goal of the SEDES doctoral symposium is to provide Software Engineering PhD students with an environment in which they can present and discuss their work, receive feedback and suggestions from faculty and peers, and network with other researchers in the field. Besides being an opportunity to gather the community of researchers in Software Engineering, both in academic or industrial settings, SEDES also aims at fostering international cooperation with Software Engineering faculty members, by means of joint co-supervisions.



Talk : "Design Science for Software and Systems Engineering "

Abstract: Design Science is a research methodology which focuses specifically on the design and evaluation of artefacts in a particular context. In Software and Systems Engineering, solutions are created and evaluated with respect to given requirements. In my talk, I will investigate the how Design Science may be utilized for conducting research in Software and Systems Engineering. In particular, I will present several best practices and research methods for conducting a successful PhD thesis in this area.

Biography: Manuel Wimmer is Full Professor and Head of the Department of Business Informatics – Software Engineering at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria. He received his Ph.D. and his Habilitation from TU Wien, Austria. He has been a research associate at the University of Malaga, Spain, a visiting professor at the University of Marburg, Germany as well as at TU Munich, Germany, and an assistant professor at the Business Informatics Group (BIG), TU Wien, Austria. Currently, he is also leading the Christian Doppler Laboratory on Model-Integrated Smart Production (CDL-MINT) which is running from 2017 to 2023. In this context, he is developing modeling approaches for smart production facilities, as well as techniques for the continuous evolution of such systems based on production information gathered and analyzed at runtime.

Moreover, he is/was involved in several national and international projects dealing with the foundations and application of model engineering techniques, especially metamodeling and model transformations, for domains such as tool interoperability, legacy tool modernization, model versioning and evolution, software reverse engineering and migration, Web engineering including social Web and semantic Web, Cloud computing, and flexible production systems. He is co-author of the book Model-driven Software Engineering in Practice (Morgan & Claypool, second edition, 2017).

Vasco Amaral is Senior Lecturer at the department of Computer Science group Science and Technology of Programming Section (CTP) of UNL (Universidade Nova de Lisboa ). Invited Professor for the winter semester 2007/2008 at University of Geneva (working with the SMV group headed by the Prof. Doctor Didier Buchs). Senior member at IEEE where is vice-chair of the Portuguese Computer Science Chapter. Elected Coordinator at the regional level of the Software Engineers Association at Ordem dos Engenheiros. Research goals: derive tools & dedicated formalisms for modeling specific software intensive domains with conceptual notations, semantically well described, while dealing with families of software products. The purpose is to analyse system properties, verify, simulate, optimize, and automatically derive code from models specified by the domain experts. Currently, is interested on the particular topic of Modelling Cyber-Physical Systems. Additional goal: derive a consistent, but practical methodology for the complete DSL Engineering life-cycle.
