Many thanks to all speakers and participants of LASER 2008!
The LASER summer school, organized by the ETH Chair of Software Engineering, brings together the concepts and practice of software engineering in the idyllic setting of the Elba Island off the coast of Tuscany, easily reachable by air, car, bus or train.
The LASER school is intended for professionals from the industry (engineers and managers) as well as university researchers, including PhD students. Participants learn about the most important software technology advances from the pioneers in the field. The school's focus is applied, although theory is welcome to establish solid foundations. The format of the school favors extensive interaction between participants and speakers.
Topic and speakers
The IT industry, and with it the software research community, are at a crossroads: the end of Moore's law as we know it. The only way to continue delivering needed advances in computational power is to rely on concurrent techniques, such as multicore architectures. But while extensive research has been conducted on concurrent programming for decades, it remains extremely hard to guarantee the correctness of realistic concurrent computations. The 2008 LASER summer school examines issues and solutions in depth.
The speakers are among the most respected experts in the field:
The school takes place at the magnificent Hotel del Golfo in Golfo di Procchio, Elba. Along with an intensive scientific program, participants will have time to enjoy the natural and cultural riches of this history-laden jewel of the Mediterranean.
