In 1988, the SEI hosted a small workshop attended by approximately 30 process improvement professionals. Since then, this workshop has grown to become the SEPG Conference Series, the leading global conference series on software and systems process management. As the SEI works with its government sponsor and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) to transition Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)-based process improvement activities to a brand-new CMU entity, the community will be vital in creating a shared, refreshed vision for process improvement.
The new organization will serve as the host for SEPG Conference Series and will begin assuming management and operation of SEPG North America 2013. To allow for a thorough transition, the new host has postponed plans for a March 4-7, 2013 conference in Orlando, Florida, and aims to hold the conference in the fall of 2013, possibly co-located or combined with the annual CMMI Workshop. You can help shape the evolution of the SEPG Conference Series by sharing your vision for the future of SEPG at www.sepgconference.org.
The SEI has been honored to host the SEPG Conference Series since its inception and looks forward to being a contributor to the state of the practice of process improvement in the future. In accordance with its vision of leading the world to a software-enriched society, the SEI will continue to offer the software and systems engineering communities a range of other conferences including CERT FloCon, the SEI Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) Conference, and the TSP Symposium. The SEI will continue to expand its SEI Webinar Series, podcasts, and series of focused workshops.
