International Software Engineering Research Network (ISERN)

ISERN is a community that believes software engineering research needs to be performed in an experimental context. By doing this we will be able to observe and experiment with the technologies in use, understand their weaknesses and strengths, tailor the technologies for the goals and characteristics of particular projects and package them together with empirically gained experience to enhance their reuse potential in future projects.

The founding ISERN members chose the Quality Improvement Paradigm as the reference model to provide a common terminology for their cooperation.

The ISERN community holds annual meetings, of which the next meeting will take place in New Orleans as part of ESEIW 2023.
