Hyderabad will host the annual International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) from May 31 to June 7, a first for the country. Previously, the conference was held in Asia in 2006 at host city Shanghai. The 36th edition of ICSE will address recent innovations, trends, experiences and challenges in the field of software engineering.
“Owing to the strong academia and industry presence in the city, Hyderabad was the destination of choice,” said Ramesh Loganathan, president of ITsAP, which is a conference partner along with NASSCOM.
The conference will involve the participation of around 1500 to 2000 delegates. It will include symposiums, demonstrations and workshops and will provide a platform for industry experts and researchers to network for innovation and collaboration. On the cards are industry tours for the participants to software majors in the city.
“We have 800 participants who have already registered with us so far including 150 companies,” said Pankaj Jalote, general chair of the conference organisation and director of Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) Delhi.
The international conference that brings together researchers, industry practitioners and academicians will be held in Firenze, Italy next year, followed by Austin, Texas the year after.
