India Chapter of SIGSOFT
ACM Special Interest Group


Software Engineering is a very active area for research world wide, and is perhaps one of the most important areas for the Indian IT industry, given its focus on project-based development. It is therefore important that activities like high-end seminars and conferences on SE be conducted regularly to help the professionals and researchers. ISOFT aims to provide this.
