Plenary Lecture I: ROOM A’,  08:00 – 09:00

Engineering Software Systems

Prof. Dr. Walter Dosch

Universität zu Lübeck

Institut für Softwaretechnik und Programmiersprachen

Seelandstraße 1A, D-23569 Lübeck




Software development has matured from heuristic practice to an engineering discipline. Over the years software engineering developed into a key qualification for mastering complex technical systems. Nowadays software engineers can benefit from a solid stock of basic research addressing specification, modelling, design and implementation techniques for sequential, concurrent, distributed and real time systems. The underlying software models should support different system views, in particular a data model, a state transition model, an architectural model, and a process model. We survey the scientific foundations of software engineering and outline future prospects. We conclude with a critical assessment of applying formal methods from academics to industrial practice.
