30th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) - 40 years of Software Engineering

About forty years ago, it was started the main conference about Software Engineering. In that time, during the first NATO Software Engineering Conference this incredible field was starting. There, researchers such as E.W. Dijkstra (in memorian), Alan J. Perlis (in memorian), Peter Naur, Brian Randell, M. Douglas McIlroy, were discussing about the Software Crisis and new approaches as Software Reuse our main focus here.

40 years after, the country is the same, Germany, and many of that people will be there to celebrate the 40 years of Software Engineering, including M. Douglas McIlroy. See the Software Components Lecture by M.D. McIlroy.

If you have the opportunity sure go there. May 10-18, 2008, Leipzig, Germany (30th ICSE).
