The 26th Annual IEEE Software Technology Conference

29 March – 3 April 2014
Westin Long Beach, Long Beach, California, USA

The IEEE Computer Society is pleased to bring you the 26th Annual Software Technology Conference.

Our theme this year is Meeting Real World Challenges through Software Technology. As technologists and as citizens, we are faced with myriad challenges from defending national security, to ensuring the robustness of our critical infrastructure, to sustaining and enhancing large portfolios of legacy systems – all within ever tighter resources constraints. Many of our attendees and their customers will not be developing new systems, but rather will be updating code in embedded systems, integrating new capabilities, or otherwise retrofitting existing deployed systems, rather than creating brand new software-intensive systems. If investments are made in new development, those systems will need to be resilient and sustainable for a longer period of time.

We invite you to connect with your colleagues and share your ideas, success stories, and lessons learned in applying software technology to meet our common challenges, by submitting an abstract for consideration as one of our conference session or tutorial speakers.
