Conference theme:

Human and Social Aspects of Software Engineering


Software is eating the world. We depend on it not only for industrial automation but also in our daily lives and to address some of society's most cherished challenges in education, human health, economic development, and environmental sustainability. But one of the great challenges of software development lies precisely in the people who do it. The knowledge and skills they possess are important, but so are their personality, emotions, and their own culture. This talk will address such social and human aspects, focusing on diversity and inclusion.
