September 6-12, 2009
Elba Island, Italy

Registration Open

The LASER school is intended both for researchers (including PhD
students) and for professional software engineers and managers who want
to benefit from the best in software
technology advances. The focus of LASER is resolutely practical,
although theory is welcome to establish solid foundations. The format of
the school favors extensive interaction
between participants and speakers.

Topics and speakers

Testing used to be the dirty secret of software development: practiced  
everyone as the main technique of quality assurance, but without a  
scientific foundation. This is no longer the case; research in recent  
has brought considerable advances to the theory of testing and the  
of testing tools. The LASER 2009 summer school presents these  
advances, both
theoretical and practical, addressing the science of testing as well  
as the
concrete solutions available to development teams.

The seven speakers are among the top international experts in the  
field from
both academia and industry, having brought major contributions to the
progress of testing techniques.

The program  both for industry practitioners who want to improve their
testing process and to scientists who want to explore the concepts in  
and find new research ideas.

The speakers are among the most respected experts in the field:

* Alberto Avritzer, Siemens
* Michel Cukier, University of Maryland
* Yuri Gurevich, Microsoft Research
* Bertrand Meyer, ETH Zurich and Eiffel Software
* Tom Ostrand, AT&T
* Mauro Pezzè, University of Milano Bicocca
* Elaine Weyuker, AT&T
