40 Years of Software Engineering

Key People from the 1968 NATO Garmisch Workshop will participate in the 40 years Software Engineering anniversary track, namely Peter Naur, Brian Randell, M. Douglas McIlroy, Albert Endres, Luigi Dadda.


This track is organised in recognition of the 40th anniversary of the landmark NATO Workshop on Software Engineering, held in Garmisch, Germany in 1968 where the term software engineering was coined.

The opening plenary session will feature appearances and presentations from the key organisers of the Garmisch meeting Peter Naur and Brian Randell, the coeditors of the 1968 proceedings. Fritz Bauer, the third key organiser will probably not attend in person, but we are hoping that he will either be on a live video hookup, or by videotape. Manfred Broy will represent him in person if he is not able to be there himself. They all will share their reminiscences of the workshop and observations about the subsequent development of Software Engineering at their session [details].

Following the plenary session, there will be three subsequent sessions, each focusing on the development over the past 40 years of one or more specific areas of software engineering.

Barry Boehm has agreed to organize a session on the general subject of economic modeling and has asked a set of presenters, young and old, to support the session. He has invited Vic Basili, Dieter Rombach, Ross Jeffery, and Albert Endres to participate in his session. Albert Endres was at Garmisch meeting as well. The session will take place on Wednesday May 14th [details].

Wolfgang Emmerich organises a session on Middleware including Brian Randell again and others on Thursday May 15th [details].

The session on Friday May 16th will focus on the area of software specification, modeling, design, and architecture. It will be organised by Carlo Ghezzi [details].

      The term 'Middleware' was first introduced by Alexander d'Agapeyeff at the 1968 Garmisch NATO Conference. In this session we will give a historic overview of the research in the last four decades that ultimately led to the 8.5 billion US$ middleware market.
