ICSE’18 in Gothenburg, Sweden

I had a great pleasure to be invited to present results my joint research with Prof. Barbara Kitchenham on “Effect Sizes and their Variance for AB/BA Crossover Design Studies” at the highest ranked (CORE-2017 A*) International Conference on Software Engineering - see photo by Prof. Andrzej Wąsowski on Twitter.

It was exciting to meet, talk with, or listen to the keynotes of the SE legends and authorities like Barry Boehm (who told me that he was in Poland once invited by his friend “Wlad Turski”), Fred Brooks, Brian Randell, Margaret Hamilton, Andreas Zeller, Andrew J. Ko, Walter Tichy, Richard DeMillo (one of the originators of mutation testing I cite usually at the beginning of my mutation testing papers!), Natalia Juristo, Oscar Dieste…

Btw. I’ve to admit that I did not know that Prof. Władysław Marek Turski gave a keynote on “Software Engineering As it Will Be” (entitled “Look Ahead at Software Engineering”) at the 4′th ICSE in 1979. Other keynote speakers were Brian Randell (“Software Engineering As it Was”), Barry Boehm (“Software Engineering As it Is”), and Edsger Dijkstra (“Software Engineering As it Should Be”).

My keynote speech “Towards More Credible Research” at the IEEE International Conference on INnovations in Intelligent SysTems and Applications (INISTA 2017)

I will give the keynote speech “Towards More Credible Research” at the IEEE International Conference on INnovations in Intelligent SysTems and Applications (INISTA 2017) in July 2017.

The aim of the talk is to discuss some problems with credibility of empirical research in software engineering (and beyond) and how to mitigate them. The focus of the talk is closely related to the special issue on “Enhancing Credibility of Empirical Software Engineering” in the Information and Software Technology journal (Elsevier), where I serve as a guest co-editor.

INISTA 2017 is organized by Gdynia Maritime University, Poland, in cooperation with Yildiz Technical University, Turkey, IEEE Poland Section, Polish Chapter IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society and IEEE SMC TC on Computational Collective Intelligence.

Two books on software engineering research and practice I had a pleasure to co-edit together with Mirosław Ochodek

I had a pleasure to co-edit (together with Mirosław Ochodek) two books on software engineering research and practice:

1) The first book was published in English:

Lech Madeyski and Mirosław Ochodek, eds., Software Engineering from Research and Practice Perspectives. pp.1-200, ISBN: 978-83-63919-16-0, Nakom, 2014.

2) The second book was published in Polish:

Lech Madeyski and Mirosław Ochodek, eds., Inżynieria oprogramowania: Badania i praktyka. pp. 1-217, ISBN: 978-83-63919-15-3, Nakom, 2014.

The former book (in English) includes my paper on recent (since 2010) Polish achievments in Software Engineering research in comparison to contribution of researchers from other European countries:

Jakub Jurkiewicz, Piotr Kosiuczenko, Lech Madeyski, Mirosław Ochodek, Cezary Orłowski, Łukasz Radliński. “Recent Polish achievements in Software Engineering.” In Software Engineering from Research and Practice Perspectives (Eds. Lech Madeyski, M. Ochodek), pp. 15‐38, Scientific Papers of The Polish Information Processing Society Scientific Council, ISBN 978‐83‐63919‐16‐0, 2014.
