Welcome to LASER Summer School
Concurrent and parallel computation is the locus of many of the toughest challenges in computer science and software engineering. The school brings together concurrency experts representing many different approaches and views, and presents their answers to these challenges. It is a unique opportunity to familiarize yourself with the most important results in concurrency and get familiar with work at the frontier of concurrency research.
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.
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.
