CHASE 2021
Thu 20 - Fri 21 May 2021
co-located with ICSE 2021

CHASE in the age of crises and technological revolution

For the past 13 years, CHASE has covered an extensive range of research on the cooperative and human aspects of software engineering. As CHASE takes its first step as a co-located conference at ICSE, the world of software looks more diverse than ever. Old challenges continue to be relevant as new challenges emerge at an increasing rate. The ongoing pandemic has suddenly shifted an unprecedented amount of work into online mode, while critical questions around the ethics, sustainability, and security of software enter everyday discussions. Technological revolutions in the form of AI and new network technologies are transforming our societies, while political, ecological, and humanitarian crises loom. There is a need for education and re-education of entire workforces, as jobs are transformed. Simultaneously, a large part of the global population has no access to electricity, not to mention any computer software. In this panel discussion, the panelists will consider the challenges ahead in computing and software engineering, and provide their views on how CHASE could address some of the issues that will be relevant for the next 13 years.
