Online workshop: 29 June - 1 July, 2021 (16:00-17:30 CEST each day)

The SWForum.eu project aims to create a self-sustainable online forum that facilitates and encourages both researchers and practitioners as well as projects in software, digital infrastructure and cybersecurity to create intersections of expertise and a multidisciplinary approach to research and innovation.

In this light, the project is organising an online Workshop on Research Challenges, Collaboration, and Coordination in European Software Engineering Projects. 



The purpose of this workshop is threefold:

  1. discuss about open research challenges that are of interest in the European Software Engineering community;
  2. discuss about collaboration opportunities among European projects in the area of software engineering;
  3. understand how to develop a self-sustaining and self-governed research forum at the European level.
