Below are the details of the keynote speakers for EASE 2010:
- Tore Dybå
- Bashar Nuseibeh
"Are we advancing the SE discipline with empirical studies?"
The basic tenet of empirical software engineering is to advance the software engineering discipline. But, does it? Does it advance theory? Does it advance practice? Do empirical studies even matter? The talk will address these basic questions by critically examining the current practice of empirical software engineering, by providing illustrative examples of empirical studies, and by suggesting how we can move forward to make an empirical impact.
Dr. Tore Dybå is chief scientist and research manager at SINTEF and adjunct full professor at the University of Oslo. He received his doctoral degree in computer and information science from the Norwegian U niversity of Science and Technology (NTNU). Dr. Dybå worked as a consultant for eight years in Norway and Saudi Arabia before he joined SINTEF in 1994. His research interests include empirical and evidence-based software engineering, software process improvement, and organizational learning. Dr. Dybå is the author and coauthor of more than 70 refereed publications appearing in international journals, books, and conference proceedings, including IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, IEEE Software, Information and Software Technology, Empirical Software Engineering and Software Process: Improvement and Practice. He is the principal author of the book "Process Improvement in Practice: A Handbook for IT Companies," published as part of the Kluwer International Series in Software Engineering. He is a board member of the International Software Engineering Research Network and at the editorial board of Empirical Software Engineering.
"Fishing for requirements in the wild: using qualitative studies to elicit elusive quality requirements"
Bashar Nuseibeh is Professor of Software Engineering a the University of Limerick and Chief Scientist of Lero - the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre. He is also a Professor of Computing at the Open University, UK, where he served as Director of Research (2002-2008), and a Visiting Professor at Imperial College London and the National Institute of Informatics, Japan. Previously he was a Reader at Imperial College London and Head of its Software Engineering Laboratory.
His research interests are in software requirements engineering and design, software process modelling and technology, security and privacy, and technology transfer. He has published over 150 refereed papers and consulted widely with industry, working with organisations such as the UK National Air Traffic Services (NATS), Texas Instruments, Praxis Critical Systems, Philips Research Labs, and NASA. Bashar is Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, Editor Emeritus of the Automated Software Engineering Journal, and a member of the Editorial Board of several other international journals. He served as programme chair of the main conferences in his area, including ASE'98, RE'01, and ICSE'05, and was Chair of the ICSE Steering Committee (2007-2009) and of IFIP Working Group 2.9 (Requirements Engineering) (2004-2010).
He received a 2002 Philip Leverhulme Prize, an ICSE'2003 Most Influential Paper award, and a Senior Research Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering and Leverhulme Trust (2005-2007). He received an IFIP Outstanding Service Award and a CHI'2010 Golden Mouse award for best research video. He was elected a Fellow of Automated Software Engineering in 2007, and is a Fellow of the BCS and IET, and is a Chartered Engineer.
