November 22, 2016—From March 20-23, 2017, the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute (SEI) will host the 2017 Software Solutions Symposium in Arlington, Virginia. Building on the success of the inaugural Symposium held in 2015, the event will provide insights on emerging technologies and technical strategies for software-reliant systems.
“In industry, government, and especially the Department of Defense, software lies at the heart of every new system capability,” said Symposium Technical Chair John Foreman. “More and more, we have to balance the rapid evolution of systems and the development of increasingly complex capabilities, with the need to modernize and sustain aging software systems. We know agility is a must, yet it can’t come at the expense of security and resilience.”
Senior researchers and practitioners in government and industry systems and software work will lead Symposium tutorials, talks, and panel discussions. The event will also serve as a forum for networking outside of the formal sessions, and it will provide participants the opportunity to influence the SEI research agenda.
This year, the keynote addresses will be provided by experts in government:
Hands-on, half-day tutorials will address a number of important topics, including
Other highlights of the technical program include
The SEI will make discounted tickets available to U.S. government and military personnel, employees of small businesses, and industry attendees whose organizations send three or more people to the symposium.
