Bashar Nuseibeh Editorial
Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (TSE)

"Recognizing the need for timeliness of publication and the environmentally friendly opportunities provided by online publication, TSE will be moving to a “mostly online” mode of delivery in 2013. Through IEEE Computer Society’s OnlinePlusTSE papers will not only be available online as soon as they are accepted for publication, they will also be packaged as an electronic offering as the default form of subscription. This will be accompanied by a quarterly 6 inch by 9 inch digest in hardcopy, containing paper details— including titles, authors, abstracts, and citation information—and a disk containing the PDF version of the papers and supplemental material. Readers wishing to continue to receive hardcopies of the full journal can do so for an additional subscription fee, using a print-on-demand service."

A very interesting article on Douglas Engelbart, who some consider the father of HCI. The article starts by saying: "Doug Engelbart knew that his obituaries would laud him as “Inventor of the Mouse.” I can see him smiling wistfully, ironically, at the thought. The mouse was such a small part of what Engelbart invented."

Agile methods in software engineering courses

The management of software engineering processes is a foundational topic in software engineering courses. Moreover it is the cornerstone of the learning and assessment activities conducted in software engineering capstone projects.

  • Are there successful experiences on the usage of agile methods in software engineering courses?
  • What are the more suitable agile methodologies? (E.g., SCRUM, extreme programming,...)
  • What are advantages and disadvantages of using these approaches in software engineering courses?
  • How to integrate architectural and assurance concerns into these methods to effectively teach software engineering concepts throughout the entire software life cycle?
