SERP'20 - The 18th Int'l Conf on Software Engineering Research and Practice

by admin last modified Jan 19, 2020 05:12 PM

SERP is an international conference that serves researchers, scholars, professionals, students, and academicians who are looking to both foster working relationships and gain access to the latest research results. It is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a number of other research conferences; namely, The 2020 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (CSCE'20).

We anticipate having between 1,000 and 2,000 participants in the Congress. The congress includes 20 major tracks composed of: 122 technical, research, and panel sessions as well as a number of keynote lectures and tutorials; all will be held simultaneously, same location and dates: July 27-30, 2020. Last year, the Congress had attracted speakers/authors and participants affiliated with over 158 different universities (including many from the top 50 ranked institutions), major IT corporations (including: Microsoft, Google, Apple, SAP, Facebook, Oracle, Amazon, Yahoo, Samsung, IBM, Ebay, GE, Siemens, Philips, Ericsson, BAE Systems, Hitachi, NTT, Twitter, Uber Technologies, ...), major corporations (including: Exxon Mobil, Johnson & Johnson, JPMorgan Chase, PetroChina, GlaxoSmithKline, HSBC, Airbus, Boeing, Hyundai, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, ...), government research agencies (NSF, NIH, DoE, US Air Force, NSA National Security Agency, Central Intelligence Agency, ...), US national laboratories (including, NASA National Aeronautics and Space Administration, ANL Argonne National Lab, Sandia National Lab, ORNL Oak Ridge National Lab, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Lawrence Livermore National Lab, Los Alamos National Lab, Pacific Northwest National Lab, ...), and a number of Venture Capitalists as well as distinguished speakers discussing Intellectual Property issues. Last year, 54% of attendees were from academia, 25% from industry; 20% from government and funding agencies; and 1% unknown. About half of the attendees were from outside USA; from 69 nations.

The primary goal of this conference is to provide a platform for researchers, scientists, industry experts and scholars to share their novel ideas and research results on the application of human cognition models in various practical computing applications. Through this conference, the organizers would like to develop an interdisciplinary venue to contribute and discuss the ongoing innovations, applications and solutions to challenging problems of engineering human brain processes, learning mechanisms and decision making processes.

Typical formal definitions of Software Engineering include 

Software Engineering
    • "The systematic application of scientific and technological knowledge, methods, and experience to the design, implementation, testing, and documentation of software"
    • "The application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software" 
    • "An engineering discipline that is concerned with all aspects of software production" 
    • "The establishment and use of sound engineering principles in order to economically obtain software that is reliable and works efficiently on real machines"

You are invited to submit a paper for consideration. ALL ACCEPTED PAPERS will be published in the corresponding proceedings by Publisher: Springer Nature - Book Series: Transactions on Computational Science & Computational Intelligence
