Please consider submitting to the International Workshop on Software Engineering Research and Industrial Practices, which will be co-located with the ICSE 2014 conference in Hyderabad, India. I will be giving the keynote . Please submit your papers by January 24, 2014.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss current state of Software Engineering (SE) research and Industrial Practices (IPs), and advance collaboration to reduce gap between research and practice. Research is core part of modern business which can lead to innovation in the form of new products and improvements in existing products and services. Most companies involved in IT solutions and services are facing challenges to incorporate research output into practices. Therefore, the challenges are to identify the gaps and to discover ways in collaboration to use SE research for the benefit of IPs.
