Tölvunarfræðideild: ICE-TCS seminar, Mikael Lindvall introducing Fraunhofer USA
Wednesday, 27 August 2014: Mikael Lindvall (Fraunhofer Center for Experimental Software Engineering, USA) delivers an ICE-TCS seminar in room M104 at 2pm.
Title: Introducing the Fraunhofer USA Center for Experimental Software Engineering
Speaker: Mikael Lindvall (Fraunhofer USA Center for Experimental Software Engineering, University of Maryland College Park)
The Fraunhofer Center for Experimental Software Engineering does applied research in software engineering.
We have projects with numerous industry and government organizations, for example NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and other NASA centers across the USA. We are also affiliated with the University of Maryland, College Park. Some examples of technologies that we use in our projects are: Model Based Testing, Security Analysis, Verification of Requirements, Reverse Engineering, and Project Management support of large software projects.
Over the years, we have developed a number of software tools that help Fraunhofer scientist conduct their work.
An essential part of the center are our interns who come from Iceland (currently we have seven Icelandic interns) and Germany as well as other parts of the world.
The intern program starts with our boot camp training program in which they are introduced to the software engineering best practices and tools that are in use at the center.
Each intern is then assigned to a project and receives training from the project manager/scientist throughout the internship.
This presentation will introduce the Fraunhofer Center, give a few examples of some of our recent projects and will specifically highlight the interns' roles in these projects with the goal of further strengthening our great relationship with the School of Computer Science at Reykjavík University.
Mikael Lindvall is a Senior Research Scientist and the Technical Director at Fraunhofer USA CESE. He has been at CESE for more than 15 years and is one of the founders of CESE's internship program. He has served as the principal investigator (PI) on several successful NASA R&D projects funded by the NASA IV&V center. He is also an adjunct professor in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park and teaches a graduate course entitled ENPM 614 Software Testing and Maintenance.
