CEE-SECR 2013 Conference Results

On Oct. 24-25, Moscow hosted the 9th Central & Eastern European Software Engineering Conference in Russia (CEE-SECR 2013), an independent international software development conference. More than 790 participants from 15 countries took part in the event including programmers, QA engineers, architects, analysts, scientists and managers at all levels.

The program included more than a hundred papers and panel discussions presented over two days. Participants were able to attend an open RUSSOFT Members Meeting and discuss topics of interest in the new Conference Discussion Corner. Five master-classes took place prior to the conference on Oct. 23.

The event was again held at Digital October, Moscow’s center for new technologies. Reports were given simultaneously in five rooms, which allowed attendees to choose the most interesting topic at any given time. The halls were lively with participants chatting with speakers, debating about presentations and starting open discussions.

According to participants, the most interesting were:

  • How to launch local startup on the global market? – a discussion moderated by Nick Puntikov, First Line Software
  • LLVM and Clang — Advancing Compilers and Tools – by Chris Lattner, LLVM, Apple
  • How To Do Kick-Ass Software Development – Sven Peters, Atlassian
  • Caution! Patent trolls! Theory, practice and a few examples – George Bardmesser, Bardmesser Law Group
  • WebRTC: Call me from your browser! – Vladimir Beloborodov, MERA NN

According to the results of the conference, the CEE-SECR Program committee chose the winners of the Bertrand Meyer Award for the best research paper in the field of software engineering. The winners are Vladimir Itsykson and Andrey Bazhenov of St. Petersburg State Polytechnical University in Russia with their work “Using meta-modeling to forecast software development project characteristics.”

This year’s conference received support from Russian Venture Company, Intel, JetBrains, Luxoft, Deutsche Bank, First Line Software, EMC, Oracle, Atlassian, Parallels and IBM. RUSSOFT, APKIT, RAEC, Reksoft and many others actively supported the conference as well.

    • I am always delighted to participate in SECR. On the one hand, the conference attracts me by really work atmosphere and environment, by a big number of speakers whom are interesting to hear, and on the other hand, by numerous round tables devoted to various problems which seem to be really vital to the major part of participants. I am really pleased with the informal atmosphere which always predominates on the sessions themselves as well as in the lobby talks within the backroom space. All these actions are usually held on a very high professional level. It is also great that in spite of purely engineering scope of the conference many other topics related to the software engineering are also discussed here, such as human resources and training in IT companies, IP protection etc. No doubts, that SECR is considered to be a world-class conference and comprehensively reflects the status of IT industry in Russia as well as development trends in the world.

    • The conference program always keeps focus on important aspects of state-of-the-art software engineering technologies, and provides a unique opportunity and ground to meet in person with world-known gurus in software engineering. I would like to highlight the excellent atmosphere of SECR that enables fascinating discussions and practical experience exchange with colleagues from leading IT companies. Participants of the conference have become good friends, and the conference itself can be considered an annual meeting of Software Engineering Club members.

    • SECR was a remarkable event, in a number of ways. The quality and breadth both of the presenters and attendees made this a world-class conference on software engineering of great value to academics and practitioners alike. It was particularly useful and rewarding for those of us coming from abroad to learn something about Russia today and the state of the Russian software industry. It is an impressive and growing community that will only increase in importance in years to come.

    • CEE-SEC(R) goes from strength to strength, year to year. Each year larger, and more important, better: better papers, better speakers, even a better venue! The Object Management Group is proud to participate, and I personally tremendously enjoyed my participation and look forward to 2013. This is one of the best software engineering events in Eastern Europe – and perhaps the world.

    • The SECR-2011 conference pleasantly surprised with the quite uncommon for scientific forums mix of intelligence and creativity, highly informative reports, participants’ real interest in learning, and all this with an excellent organizational support. Many thanks to the organizers who took care about all the details, which made participation in the conference pleasant, interesting and very useful.

    • I was very impressed with the Software Engineering Conference Russia. In part, this was due to the hard work of the organizers and sponsors of the conference. And in part, the success of the conference was a result of the desire of Russian software professionals to network, learn, and advance the state-of-the-practice. This is a hallmark of our emerging discipline: the professionalization of software engineering. The enthusiasm of the attendees and speakers at SECR was notable. All who were associated with the conference are to be congratulated.

    • At the last year’s event, we heard from Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-inventor of Scrum, that his company Scrum Inc. was launching a new Scrum capability assessment methodology. Since it is always extremely valuable to learn from the best, we decided to undergo the assessment, and as a result First Line became the first software firm in the world to be awarded an official Scrum Capability Rating by Scrum Inc.

    • As a speaker I really liked the conference organization — everything was quick and exactly as was agreed. As a participant I really enjoyed the conference program. Sometimes due to two or even three interesting reports in parallel tracks, it was almost impossible to make a choice, but I think it is a good thing for a conference.

      Maxim Dorofeev
      Managing partner

    • I truly enjoyed speaking at SECR. The hospitality given to the speakers was exceptional and the conference was very well run. I am looking forward to returning soon!

    • I was privileged to speak at CEE-SECR in 2011 to a large group of Russian software experts on the future of Scrum. It is inspiring to see how over the last few years, Scrum has taken hold and is truly transforming the culture of the Russian software industry. This process is driven in large part by the drive and dedication of leaders like the organizers of the CEE-SECR event to make the most advanced knowledge and best practices available to their fellow software professionals. It is professionally gratifying to be a part of this effort.

    • It was nice being back in Moscow and at CEE-SECR. It is a very well organized conference you have, quite different in scope from the normal “western” conferences I attend — and I mean that positively. There is a more practitioner approach, but still some academic touch. And you seem to have a very enthusiastic — and growing — audience attending. So you must be on the right track.

      Lars Bendix
      Associate professor

    • SECR is an impressive conference: it covers a broad range of computer science topics, has engaged and excited speakers and attendees, is well organized, and generally a lot of fun to attend. It’s a great place to learn about new topics and meet experts in the field.

      Chris Lattner
      Founder and chief architect

    • The conference was very well organized! All information was available on the website in advance. The leading experts and interesting speakers were invited from Russia and around the world. Selected presentations were relevant and informative. The round tables devoted to innovations, investment, forecasts for the future were very interesting. Many thanks to the organizers!

    • CEE-SECR is different from other conferences: successful smiling friendly people give the impression that I was on another planet; The conference is well organized and comfortable for participants, there was a speakers’ room, WiFi, space for discussions with a board and a screen. A pleasant fact for me was that at the last moment, when I was about to leave on a plane one of the participants told me he was going to SECR for only 2 reports, one of which is mine.

      Boris Shteinberg
      Southern Federal University (Russian Federation)

    • Thumbs up for the organizers of the SECR conference. The event was extremely well organized and managed, and I derived enormous satisfaction from meeting up with very interesting people and making lots of extremely useful contacts among the Software Engineering professionals. Keep up the good job!
