  • SWEBOK : Adjustments for Education
    Thursday, 20th March - 11:00
    Robert Dupuis (Moderator) - University of Quebec-Montreal
    Pierre Bourque - ETS Montreal

    The workshop will present a survey of the current uses of the trial version of the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK) guide in education. From this survey and from the discussions in other workshops, the participants will be asked to work on the appropriate ways to gather more information from the users, and on how to modify the guide in order for it to play its role in education more appropriately. This will include its relationship with SEEK (Software Engineering Education Knowledge) and the list of topics used as a basis for the curriculum.

  • IEEE-CS/ACM Computing Curriculum Software Engineering Volume Project
    Thursday, 20th March - 14:00
    Susan Mengel (Moderator) - Texas Tech University
    Rich LeBlanc - Georgia Institute of Technology
    Ann Sobel - Miami University
    Mordechai Ben-Menachem - Ben-Gurion University
    Timothy C. Lethbridge - University of Ottawa
    Jorge L. Díaz-Herrera - Rochester Institute of Technology
    Thomas B. Hilburn - Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
    Barrie Thompson - University of Sunderland

    In this workshop the CCSE Steering Committee members will report on the Volume's progress and the process by which the Volume is being created, and solicit feedback from the session's audience on the Volume's effectiveness.

  • Preparing for the 2004 IEEE Computer Society International Design Competition (CSIDC)
    Thursday, 20th March - 16:00
    Susan K. Land (Moderator) - Northrop Grumman Information Technology
    Alan D. Clements - University of Teesside

    This workshop aims to promote the annual Computer Society International Design Competition (CSIDC) among academics by providing information on what is required for each team, competition deadlines, how best to prepare, and practical guidance for each phase of the competition. A review of the top five winning teams from the 2002 competition will also be presented, with the characteristics that helped make each of these teams successful.

  • Tailoring a Successful Project-Based Course - in Which Students Learn to Work in Teams on the Development of Useful Software Products for Real Clients - to the Needs and Resource Constraints of Individual Colleges and Universities
    Friday, 21st March - 11:00
    Barry Boehm (Moderator) - USC
    Dan Port - USC
    David Klappholz - Stevens Institute of Technology

    The purpose of this workshop is to present an in-depth overview of USC CS577, and to start the processes of:

    • eliciting from faculty at a variety of colleges and universities the different needs and resource constraints to which they would be subject were they to port CS577 to their home institutions
    • planning the types of adjustments that can be made to CS577 to meet various sets of constraints


  • Software Engineering Course Materials Workshop
    Saturday, 22nd March - 14:00
    Gregory W. Hislop (Moderator) - Drexel University
    Thomas B. Hilburn - Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
    Michael J. Lutz - Rochester Institute of Technology
    Susan A. Mengel - Texas Tech University
    Mark J. Sebern - Milwaukee School of Engineering

    This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss and critique software engineering course materials being developed as part of the SWENET project. SWENET is an NSF project designed to create a Web-based community of software engineering education. A key activity in the project is to create, collect, and share software engineering course materials within the context of current accreditation guidelines and curricular models.

  • Tools for Outcomes Assessment of Education and Training
    in the Software Development Process

    Saturday, 22nd March - 16:00
    David Klappholz (Moderator) - Stevens Institute of Technology
    Lawrence Bernstein - Stevens Institute of Technology
    Dan Port - USC
    Peter Dominic - Stevens Institute of Technology

    The purpose of this workshop is to provide university faculty and software development professionals with a background on work already done in developing a tool (ATSE) for measuring students' attitudes to software process, and to involve them in the exploration of its use and further development. The outcome of this workshop will include guidelines for application of ATSE and other instruments within academic computer science programs and in industrial SPI efforts. The workshop will also involve the participant in the evolution of the various instrument
