SEIF Day 2012



The annual Software Engineering Innovation Foundation (SEIF) Workshop brings together SEIF winners, influential software engineering researchers, and researchers from Microsoft Research to present and discuss existing software engineering projects being pursued by the SEIF community, and future directions of software engineering research.

Software Engineering Innovation Foundation (SEIF) was formed in 2009 with a mission to foster research in software engineering tools, applications, and education. Over the past three years, SEIF has provided funding for research in seminal software engineering areas, data-driven software engineering, and the application of software engineering principles to mobile and cloud computing. SEIF has also hosted multiple events and workshops to provide a forum for software engineering researchers to share and collaborate.
