Conference: An Overview of Software Quality Assurance and the ISO/IEC 29110 Series of Standards and Guides for Very Small Entities
One way to improve the confidence of delivering a quality product within budget and schedule is by having software development organizations implement recognized software quality assurance practices. Unfortunately, in many organizations, Software Quality Assurance (SQA) is just a synonym for testing. SQA covers a wide spectrum of software engineering practices to provide a level of confidence that the software developed or maintained will meet the functional and performance requirements of the customer and will be delivered within schedule and budget.
Very Small Entities (VSEs) are enterprises, organisations (e.g., public or non-profit organisations), projects or departments having up to 25 people. VSEs are very important to the worldwide economy. However, it has been established that VSEs often do not utilize existing systems and software engineering standards. To address the needs of VSEs, a set of international standards and guides, the ISO/IEC 29110 series, has been developed. The ISO/IEC 29110 series, such as the management and engineering guides, is targeted at VSEs developing software products or systems that are typically composed of hardware and software components.
Dr. Claude Y. Laporte has been a professor since 2000 at the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), a 11,000-student engineering school, where he teaches software engineering. He has worked in defence and transportation enterprises for over 20 years. He received a master’s degree in Applied Sciences from the École Polytechnique de Montréal and a Ph.D. from the Université de Bretagne Occidentale (France). He was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Universidad de San Martin de Porres (Perú) in 2013.
He is the Lead Editor of the ISO/IEC 29110 series of systems and software engineering life cycle standards and guides developed specifically for Very Small Entities. He is the Co-chair of the INCOSE Systems Engineering for Very Small Entities WG. He is a member of INCOSE and life member of IEEE. He has been a member of the professional association of engineers of the Province of Québec.
Laporte is a co-author of a French book, published in 2017, targeted at managers of small systems engineering organizations. An English version of the systems engineering book should be published in 2021 by INCOSE. He is the co-author of two French books on software quality assurance published in 2011 by Hermes Science-Lavoisier and an English textbook, on the same topic, published by John Wiley and Sons in 2018. The Software Quality Assurance book is translated in Spanish in 2021 and will also be published in simplified Chinese in 2022.
Conference: Agile Software Development during COVID 19
Companies around the world sent their employees to work from home as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic. Software development is a human-oriented discipline and thrives on teamwork. Agile methods focus on various social aspects of software development. Before the pandemic, software development teams were often organized co-located at the companies. The keynote presents our findings of how agile software development teams reacted to the new situation, which occurred due to the switch to work from home. We also discuss the results of our multiple case study conducted in Germany, in particular the effects of the (perceived) performance and social facet of the teams under study.
Michael Neumann works as an Administrative Professor at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hochschule Hannover (HSH), Germany. He is teaching IT Project Management and Requirements Engineering in Business Informatics. His research focuses on influencing and success factors on agile methods in software development. Before Michael started his academical career, he worked for more than 10 years in several companies and gained experience related to agile software development. Today, he still accompanies teams on their agile transition and the use of agile methods.

Conference: Lenguajes específicos de dominio para la automatización en el desarrollo de software - caso CRUDyLeaf
Los lenguajes específicos de dominio (en Inglés Domain-Specific Languages, DSL) son lenguajes de programación diseñados particularmente para expresar soluciones a problemas en un dominio particular. En esta charla presentaremos un panorama general de los elementos principales que constituyen un lenguaje específico de dominio, así como ejemplificaremos su aplicación con el DSL llamado CRUDyLeaf. CRUDyLeaf fue creado para automatizar el desarrollo de servicios REST con Spring Boot a partir de la definición de operaciones CRUD definidas en un conjunto de entidades. Finalizaremos la charla discutiendo algunas pautas para el desarrollo de un DSL.

Conference: Software: to green or not to green, that's the question
That software moves the world is a clear fact. And that it is becoming more and more important, too. However, not everything is positive in the support that software provides to our daily lives. There are estimates that ICT will be responsible for 20% of global energy consumption by 2030, part of which will be due to software.
In this seminar we will review different concepts related to software sustainability. We will look at the two main perspectives of the relationship between software and the environment.
We will show some results of software consumption measurements that we have carried out: on the one hand, cases carried out to raise awareness in society in general about the impact that software has on the environment through examples of software intensively used; On the other hand, examples related to software and software engineering carried out with the aim of creating a set of best practices for the software professionals.
Our ultimate goal is to make you aware of the consumption problem associated with software and to ensure that, if at first, we were concerned with the "what" and later with the "how", now it is time to focus on the "with what".
Coral Calero is Professor at the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Spain and has a PhD in Computer Science. She is a member of the Alarcos Research Group, being responsible of the "Green and Sustainable software" line research, where two main lines of work are developed. The first one addresses issues such as measuring the impact that software and information systems have on the environment and how to improve its energy efficiency, as well as human and economic aspects related to software sustainability. The second major line of work supports all the group's dissemination activities to raise awareness of the impact that software has on the environment. She holds the professional certifications PMP (Project Management Professional), Scrum Master and Scrum Manager. Contact her at Coral.Calero@uclm.es.
Conference: The Ideology of Monolingualism in User Interface Design and Development
Why are we building computer systems that force bilingual people to use only one language? Over 60% of the world population speaks more than one language. Bilingual speakers are known for fluidly switching between languages. Yet computer systems, from desktops, to phones, to voice assistants force us to choose one language. At a time when information and communications technology could help build bridges across cultural groups, we are failing to reach out and close that gap. Through numerous examples, I will show how the Ideology of Monolingualism is pervasive in user interface design and development. The resulting monolingual computer has very poor usability for bilingual users. The problems range from poor pronunciations of names, poor voice recognition of ethnic names, spell checkers that blindly ignore one language, to news feed applications that force the user to consume news in one language at a time. Even major search engines serve you results in one language at a time. This state of affairs has serious implications for collaboration and coexistence of an ever growing bilingual population.
