CSE Annual Research Review 2006

Executive Workshop: Critical Success Factors for Developing Software-Intensive Systems of Systems

We have a number of new and exciting developments to discuss with you at our Annual Research Review week 2006 to be held on March 13-17, 2006 at the University of Southern California, in Los Angeles. Our work on very large systems of systems is providing new insights and processes for applying WinWin Spiral Model concepts to the integrated software and systems engineering of software-intensive systems of systems. Our work on the NASA Models of Computational Autonomy and our new NSF work on Value-Based Software Design is providing new value-based approaches for defining, architecting, developing, and managing "dependable" software development and evolution. Our architecture work is showing impressive performance and scalability for architecture-based development of large-scale mobile and distributed systems. And we are making good progress in incrementally unifying the COCOMO® II suite of models, starting with COCOMO® II, COCOTS, and COSYSMO.

In response to affiliate interest, our Wednesday-Friday March 15-17 Executive Workshop will focus on Critical Success Factors for Developing Software-Intensive Systems of Systems. It will include presentations by affiliates and leaders in the field on March 15, and issue working groups on March 16, ending on Friday, March 17. We will also continue with our one-day mini-workshops on Monday, March 14. These will include workshops on COSYSMO, COSOSIMO, and experiences in integrating agile methods and plan-driven methods.
