New Software Engineering Faculty Symposium 2008

Chair: Laurie Dillon (Michigan State University, USA), Stefan Leue (University of Konstanz, Germany)

Tuesday, 13 May 2008

Blauer Salon, The Westin Leipzig

A Full-Day Symposium
In conjunction with ICSE 2008 May 2008, Leipzig, Germany

Goals and Objectives

The challenge of becoming a new teaching faculty member at a research university is one that most people accept with enthusiasm and energy, but also with some trepidation. One's tenure track appointment is a signal accomplishment and the culmination of many years of hard work. But, simultaneously, it signals the start of another round of hard work and challenges that are new and often unfamiliar. Among these new challenges are establishing an independent research program, learning how to teach, learning how to mentor, and deciding how to balance career and personal life. For a new software engineering faculty member there are additional challenges such as obtaining financial support, supervising the development of software systems, and dealing with skeptical faculty colleagues from other disciplines.

The purpose of NSEFS 08 is to help new software engineering faculty members to feel more comfortable and confident in dealing with these many challenges. NSEFS 08 will feature presentations by leading academic software engineering researchers who will provide advice and guidance based upon their personal experiences and insights into the contemporary academic software engineering community. There will also be ample time for informal and small group interactions with the presenters and other attendees.

NSEFS 08 is designed to be a service to those who are within two years of (either before or after) their initial tenure track academic appointment, although the symposium may be of significant interest and value to others.

Registration for NSEFS'08 will be through the ICSE'08 registration site.
