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.
