PITTSBURGH, Pa., March 2, 2011—The Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute (SEI) announced today the keynote speakers for the upcoming SEI Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) 2011 Conference to be held May 16-20, 2011, at the San Francisco Airport Marriott in Burlingame, California. Delivering keynote addresses at the SATURN 2011 Conference are three recognized leaders in the field of software engineering and software architecture: Jan Bosch, vice president of Engineering Process and head of the Central Mobile Technologies group at Intuit Inc; David Chaiken, chief architect at Yahoo!; and Dave Thomas, CEO of Bedarra Research Labs.
In line with the SATURN 2011 conference theme "Architecting the Future," the three keynote speakers will explore the changing nature of software engineering and the search for creative solutions to emerging systems problems, as well as the implications that these have for software architecture.
"Each of the keynote speakers for the SATURN 2011 Conference is a visionary who has contributed a great deal to shaping the future of software and systems architecture," said Nanette Brown, SATURN 2011 technical chair. "We are excited that these celebrated leaders will be sharing their ideas and experiences with all in attendance."
In addition to the keynote presentations, the SATURN 2011 Conference includes a robust program of more than 30 technical sessions and tutorials as well as courses and networking opportunities with software and systems professionals from around the world.
