Present at STEW 2021

The networking conference Software Technology Exchange Workshop, STEW, is a yearly conference, organized since 2012 to create exchange between industry, academia and public sector within software development and research. 

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 speak at STEW 2021!

The tenth STEW conference is organized by the nonprofit organization Swedsoft together with its members and co-hosts AB Volvo, Addalot, Blekinge Institute of Technology, Debricked, Favro, Halmstad University, Ideon Science Park, Linnaeus University, Malmö University, RISE, Saab, Scania, Svenska Elektro- och Dataingenjörers Riksförening and SKF.

At STEW we want to make research and project results visible and available to stimulate new cooperation in software technology. 

Theme 2021: Software as a motor for acceleration and disruption  

Digitalization gives us new conditions and opportunities to run and develop businesses. Today, it is not uncommon for new technology to shape an entire industry. New technologies and companies emerge and challenge existing ones. Software is the core in this process, enabling the transformation that affects all parts of our society. Now we are interested to hear what solutions, projects or research you have been working on where software drive development forward or changes it.

We encourage presentations from different perspectives and those that combine perspectives. These may be technically oriented, domain and industry concerns, methods, interesting ways to use technologies (please note – no product presentations will be accepted), organizational aspects and more.

When presenting research it should be in a state when industry adoption is possible.  

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 main speakers to be present during the whole conference as the most important part of the STEW conference is the networking and informal exchange.
