Summer School Postponed due to COVID-19
In the light of the recent global outbreak of COVID-19 and the current travel restrictions that have affected many universities as well as our industry partners, we have decided to postpone the Summer School on Human Factors in Software Engineering until the fall 2020 (preliminary). We are deeply sorry and apologize for the inconvenience this might cause, but we believe that the health and well-being of all attendees is of the highest priority, same as the inclusiveness of our event, which at this point we cannot guarantee.
We are currently considering the new dates in October-November. The final decision will be taken when the global situation will brighten, hopefully before the summer. If the situation will not improve, we will consider cancelling this year’s school and instead invite those interested to attend the same event next summer.
While the application deadline will be delayed, we welcome interested applicants to contact us at their earliest convenience. The application system will remain open.
The 1st International Summer School on Human Factors in Software Engineering will bring together internationally recognised scholars to discuss advanced topics on human factors in software engineering. The main goal of the summer school is to provide a contribution to Ph.D. students and academic and industrial researchers alike on latest findings in the field of human factors in software engineering. A particular focus will be set on research methods in that field.
Aim: The main aim of the summer school is to provide a contribution to Ph.D. students and academic and industrial researchers alike on latest findings in the field of human factors in software engineering. A particular focus will be set on research methods in that field.
Target group: The summer school is primarily intended for Ph.D. students working in the area of behavioural software engineering and/or studying the influence of human factors in software engineering.
Organisation and structure: The school is organised in four days including lectures, practical lab sessions, an on-site visit at our company partner Ericsson, and a doctoral symposium. Upon completion, the participating students will receive a certificate with the statement of credited work equivalent to 3 ECTS. Details on the program can be taken from here.
Previous knowledge: Participants are expected to be working in the area, independent whether they are early or late in their studies. However, we also welcome students interested in the subject but not necessarily working in the field. The lectures will equip the students with the knowledge needed for the practical lab sessions, which will be also supervised.
Conditions: To be accepted to the summer school, those applying are expected to submit an ongoing or recently completed work for the doctoral symposium together with the registration.
Speakers: We are proud to announce the following speakers’ confirmation:
