ICSE 2014 features a "Future of Software Engineering" track, which provides delegates with a unique opportunity to assess the current status of software engineering and to indicate where the field is heading in the future. An international group of leading experts has been invited to report on different topics, to provide a broad and in-depth view of the evolution of the field.
In the past, these sessions have been highly attended, often with standing room only. These papers are often among the most highly-cited in the conference.
This year, we will have three types of talks. The first will be what we are calling travelogues. We have asked authors of the most highly-cited roadmaps from the Future track of 2000 to prepare a sort of travelogue, in which they reflect on the directions the field has taken in the last 14 years, and to expose new opportunities and future directions.
We are also introducing connections in which we seek to explore and to foster connections with allied fields, reflecting the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of software engineering.
Finally, we have an outstanding set of new roadmaps, where authors will provide a broad overview and in-depth assessment of where the field is headed.
