Panel theme: “The Role of Engineering & Development in Mobile Software”
Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute
Bio: Grace Lewis is a Principal Researcher at the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute. She is the lead for the Tactical Technologies Group and the principal investigator for two projects related to IoT Security, as well as the Tactical Cloudlets project. Her main interests are in edge computing, IoT security, and software architecture mainly for service- and cloud-based systems. Grace has more than 20 years of professional software development experience, in both industry and research environments.
Bio: Fergus Henderson has been a software engineer at Google for over 10 years.
He started programming as a kid in 1979, and went on to academic research in programming language design and implementation. At Google, he was one of the original developers of Blaze, a build tool now used across Google, and worked on the server-side software behind speech recognition and voice actions (before Siri!) and speech synthesis. He managed Google’s text-to-speech engineering team, and now has a software engineering role within Google’s TTS research team, but still writes and reviews plenty of code. Software that he has written is installed on over a billion devices, and gets used over a billion times per day.
William G. Griswold
University of California
Bio: William G. Griswold is Full Professor, since 2003, at the department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of California, San Diego. He is attracted by the challenges of constructing large, complex software systems (software engineering). He is especially interested in the evolution (e.g., enhancement) of large software systems, which is driven by unpredictable market forces, including the creative spark of innovation and the user’s appetite for leading-edge functionality.
Politecnico di Milano
Bio: Luciano Baresi is a full professor at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
His research interests are in the broad area of software engineering, and his main research areas are distributed systems, service-based applications, mobile, self-adaptive, and pervasive software systems. At the beginning he was interested in formal approaches for modeling and specification languages, he then moved to UML and the design of Web applications. Currently, he is interested in distributed systems, service-based applications and in the different aspects of mobile, self-adaptive, and pervasive software systems. His research has always been funded by participating in national and international projects.
