Five Reasons Why You Can’t Afford to Miss SPLC 2009

If you attend only one software development event this year, make sure it’s the 13th International Software Product Line Conference (SPLC 2009), August 24-28 in San Francisco California. From an outstanding technical program and celebrated keynote speakers who are experts in their field to high-quality tutorials, workshops, and working sessions, you will learn best practices for software product line adoption and get a chance to exchange knowledge with software product line practitioners from all over the world.

Here are five reasons why you can’t afford to miss SPLC 2009:

  1. Get a chance to learn from Kyo Kang.
    Kang—a professor at the Pohang University of Science and Technology and expert in software reuse and product line engineering, requirements engineering, and computer-aided software engineering—will mark the 20th anniversary of Feature-Oriented Domain Analysis (FODA) with his keynote on the technique.
  2. Network in excellent company.
    Organizations including Ericsson, Hitachi, Honeywell, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Mitsubishi, Nokia, Philips, Raytheon, Rolls Royce, Siemens, and Toshiba have attended previous SPLCs.
  3. Tell your software product line story.
    Through interactive tutorials, workshops, and working sessions that cover topics across the experience spectrum, SPLC 2009 provides many opportunities to share your experience with others and learn from their successes and failures. And by the time you leave, you’ll be equipped with the latest software product line research to apply to your job and share with coworkers.
  4. Come to beautiful San Francisco.
    San Francisco is a great location that offers some of the world’s greatest restaurants, scenery, and cultural attractions. It offers unique landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Alcatraz, and the largest Chinatown in the United States. It is home to stellar theatre, opera, symphony, and ballet companies, and its creative chefs, abundance of fresh ingredients, and diverse cultural influences create unforgettable dining experiences.
  5. Save $200 if you register by August 9.
    In addition to that early-bird savings, you can save with a special conference hotel rate. And if you’re an SEI Member or a student, you can save even more. Register today.

This year’s program included keynotes by leaders in the field, experience reports from industry, presentations on current research, and product line workshops, tutorials, and tool demos. View the entire program here »
