This professional conference organized by a variety of sponsors will offer a comprehensive program of presentations featuring contributions from state-of-the-art research and experience reports from industrial application in practice.

The keynote speaker at the beginning of the event is Dr. Christof Ebert of Vector Consulting Services. He will present on experiences with introducing lean and agile development.

Presentations comprise productivity improvement, comparison, introduction, and evaluation of goal-oriented software metrics as well as practical experiences for estimating the development effort in software projects. Special focus will be given to quantitative project management and controlling issues as well as to ways of providing tool support for selected processes. Work done by ambitious next-generation scientists is not overlooked – which is reflected by the award given to the best diploma thesis in the area of software metrics and effort estimation. The award, endowed with 1000 euros, will be presented in the context of an evening event to be held at the end of the first conference day.

Concurrently with the conference, an exhibition will be organized where service providers and tool manufacturers will present their offers in support of software measurement and cost estimation. Professional contributions by experts in their field, hailing from institutions such as Vector, will be given, and reports will be delivered by experienced practitioners from renowned companies such as T-Systems, Siemens, or Daimler – to name but a few.

Furthermore, there will be an opportunity to participate in tutorials on software measurement and cost estimation: During the conference, embedded mini-tutorials will be held on introducing or consolidating software measurement and cost estimation topics.

This trend-setting professional conference is the the place to meet international specialists from industry and research. The number of participants, which continues to increase year after year, is proof of the great significance of these issues for the entire information and communication industry. In a dense program, practitioners and decision makers can obtain information about the state of the art of scientific research and get valuable ideas for their own organizational practice from the intensive exchange with application professionals from industry.
