SYRCoSE Software Engineering Colloquium

SYRCoSE (Spring/Summer Young Researchers' Colloquium on Software Engineering) is an annual colloquium on software engineering targeted at young researchers (students, postgraduates, young PhDs, etc.). The main goal of the colloquium is to help young specialists to meet each other, to get more information on work of their colleagues, to exchange their experience, and to practice in presenting their results at international conferences and workshops.

SYRCoSE 2011, Ural State University (USU), Yekaterinburg

In order to establish strong connection with software engineering industry, both research and industrial papers are allowed for submission. We hope that having researchers and practitioners together at the forum will contribute to narrowing the ever-existing gap between theory and practice and increase their mutual awareness of the developments made by others and problems each community is facing.

By tradition, the colloquium takes two days at the end of spring/beginning of summer, when the whether is usually sunny and, what is even more important, students are still in universities, not on summer vacation. During the colloquium we try to create friendly and well-wishing atmosphere that stimulates communication between participants and facilitates making new friends and scientific contacts.

SYRCoSE was organized in 2007 by Prof. Alexander K. Petrenko (Institute for System Programming of the Russian Academy of Sciences) and Prof. Andrey N. Terekhov (Saint-Petersburg State University), world-known scientists in the area of software engineering and computer science.

The basic concepts of the colloquium was taken from SYRCoDIS (Spring Young Researchers' Colloquium on Database and Information Systems) organized in 2004 by Prof. Sergey D. Kuznetsov (Institute for System Programming of the Russian Academy of Sciences) and Prof. Boris A. Novikov (Saint-Petersburg State University).
