Transfering results of academic research into real products or integrating into
industry ways-of-working is one of the key challenges for both academic
institutions and companies. Unfortunately this is true for computing systems
and software related research as well, with leading companies often unaware
of existing research and academic institutions struggling to find access to the
right groups and decision makers within the industry.
The prime goal of the First International Software Technology Exchange
Workshop (STEW) is to facilitate knowledge exchange and dissemination of
academic results within companies by providing a forum through which
researchers can gain access to interested industry representatives who have
the interest and opportunity to take the outcome of the research into real
products or software product development. The workshop also strives to
stimulate networking among academia and industry attendees.
The Program Committee will consist exclusively of industrial representatives.
All accepted submissions will be published and publicized through Swedsoft’s
(the alliance of Swedish companies developing software-intensive systems)
webpage, www.swedsoft.se (by submitting, authors automatically give
permission for publication on the Swedsoft page). The authors of the best papers
will be offered the possibility to continue the research and development of their
ideas within one of the member companies.
Areas of Interest
We seek submissions from researchers working in any field related to software
technologies and software development methodologies and whose research has
reached a level where industrial adoption becomes possible. The main fields of
interest include, but are not limited to
- Emerging or established software technologies such as many-core programming,
real-time systems, cloud computing, modeling, novel programming paradigms or
languages, testing techniques for both embedded and large scale distributed
- Software development techniques, especially in the context of embedded systems,
large scale and geographically distributed organizations, agile and post-agile ways
of working etc
- Software governance methods, studies and proposals
Submissions shall be in standard, 2-column ACM format, no longer than 3 pages.
While quantitative results are welcome, we are mostly interested in the novelty
aspect of your research as well as your view on the relevance for the industry and
how it can be put in practice in an industrial setting. Both unpublished as well as
recently published papers are accepted; publication at this event does not prevent
future publication at scientific conferences. The Program Committee – composed
exclusively of industrial representatives – will give priority to papers that can clearly
articulate both the results of the research as well as the concrete areas of
applicability. At least one author of each accepted paper will be required to attend
the workshop and present the paper in a 20 minutes session. We encourage you to
prepare a demo of your technology, if applicable.
