Would you like to be a speaker at STEW 2023?

STEW 2023 will be the twelfth time this unique networking conference, dedicated to Software Technology Exchange between industry and academia, is arranged. This year’s theme is The Software engineer of the future.

The emphasis for STEW is on two main areas; networking and knowledge exchange. What makes the conference special is the focus on networking and discussions, not only with the speakers but also between the participants. Now you have the possibility to present at STEW!

We also welcome recommendations on who you would like to listen to and other ideas outside your own organization. Please email us at kansliet@swedsoft.se

Important information

Each presentation will be around 20 minutes followed by discussions and group workshops. The presenter is expected to prepare two to three questions that can be discussed around the tables. STEW does not have any copyright requirements. Hence, presenting at STEW should not prevent the researchers from publishing the results at other conferences.

At least one researcher/company representative must attend the conference and present. We also encourage you to team up with partners. Please note that we will only be able to offer one free attendance per presentation and additional speakers will have to register as participants. We want the speakers to be present during the whole conference day as the most important part of the STEW conference is the networking and informal exchange.
