Networking and knowledge sharing – an important part for scientific and technological progress

STEW 2021 is getting closer. On November 11th -12th in Lund you will be able to engage in discussions and listen to inspiring presentations around this year's theme - Software as a motor for acceleration and disruption.

From the start in 2012, the focus for STEW has been on creating exchange between academia, industry and public sector. The emphasis is on two main areas; networking and knowledge exchange. At STEW we want to stimulate new cooperation in software technology..

There will be a lot of interesting and inspiring presentations from the speakers around the theme – Software as a motor for acceleration and disruption.  You will be able to engage in discussions and listen to presentations such as; The explosion of Open Source and its impact on software performance, There is No Free Lunch: Software Quality Challenges and Deep learning for automotive software testing – first experiments.

Bringing experts and visionaries together contributes towards a better and more secure Swedish software posture.

Emil Wåreus, Debricked

Emil Wåreus describes himself as an open-source and data addict that helps developers become more efficient and secure in their open-source software usage.

I co-founded Debricked in 2018, and spend my days collecting all open source code and data of the world to build solutions to empower developers. Currently, this ranges from runtime tracking of vulnerable code execution to building metrics to measure software communities, Emil says.

In his presentation “The explosion of Open Source and its impact on software performance” Emil will talk about the current trends in open-source (with a quantitative approach) and put this in the context of DevOps performance.

“I have dived deep into the data and will share my insights in the process of selecting the right projects to use and to be involved in, and how to manage the associated risks.“

Emil concludes, I think there is a great opportunity for the Swedish industry to improve its software delivery performance. Bringing experts and visionaries together in one room will definitely contribute towards a better and more secure Swedish software posture.”

Networking and knowledge sharing play an important role for scientific and technological progress

Maria Ulan, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden and Linnaeus University.Maria Ulan is a senior researcher at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden and Research assistant at Linnaeus University.

“I’m a problem solver who is passionate about building and deploying data-driven solutions to make the world a better place.”

During her presentation at STEW “There is No Free Lunch: Software Quality Challenges”, she will talk about software quality: past, present, and future and the related challenges, solutions, and opportunities connected to this.

“For me it is important to be part of an event like STEW since I think that networking and knowledge sharing between academia, industry, and public sector, play an important role for scientific and technological progress, Maria says. She continues, STEW provides such kind of opportunity; it would be silly not to take advantage of it! “

STEW enables interaction from different fields

DDhasarathy Parthasarathy, Volvo ABhasarathy Parthasarathy presentation at STEW 2021 is called Deep learning for automotive software testing – first experiments. Dhasarathy who is a Principal Research Engineer at Volvo AB, says:

“My work focuses on using deep learning in automotive software engineering, Dhasarathy says. At STEW I will talk about producing good quality, well-tested software is fast becoming a top priority for vehicle makers. My talk will be about some of the ways in which deep learning can help make this happen.”

AI technologies and software technologies are natural partners. To fully exploit their mutually reinforcing relationship, practitioners from both the fields need to interact more and therefore it is important to be part of an event like STEW” Dhasarathy finishes.

Engage in discussions and listen to inspiring presentations

STEW is arranged to enable dialogue about the presentations where speakers can interact directly with the audience and likewise. We also give room for a lot of networking, not the least at the annual STEW-dinner, a great opportunity for you to have interesting discussions.

This year’s STEW conference and theme Software as a motor for acceleration and disruption covers a lot of interesting topics and aspects on how software is the core in the process where new technologies and companies emerge. Something that enables a transformation that affects all parts of our society. I look forward to listen to the speakers, discussions and not the least the opportunity to meet the participants” says Gabriel Modéus, Swedsoft’s secretary general.

Do not wait to secure your participation to be part of STEW 2021!
