The SERI Update Meetings, which are planned to be conducted
annually, will be informal events, with the aim of
bringing together faculty, students, industrial researchers, and
practitioners working in software engineering to present and
discuss advances in their areas of interest.
Each participant can volunteer to make a presentation about a
foundational aspect, algorithm, approach, or experience, focusing
on novel or interesting insights, relating to any aspect of
software engineering such as requirements, design, development,
analysis, testing, verification, or deployment.
