Software Engineering for Sustainable Development: Challenges and Opportunities

  • DATE / TIME:
    2012•10•16    15:00 - 2012•10•17    00:31

    This seminar will introduce the history, the state-of-the-art and challenges of software and software engineering, how software engineering is related to sustainable development (opportunities and challenges in developing software solutions to problems of development) andthe UNU-IIST rCOS Model-Driven Software Engineering Method. It will consist of two 1.5 hour sessions: 3:00-4:30 pm, on 16 October and 3:00-4:30pm on 17 Oct 2012.

    The purpose is to provide an understanding of fundamental software engineering concepts, methods and challenges. This understanding will be useful for investigating the problems of sustainable development with computational thinking and seeking their solutions with software and system engineering  methods.
