IEEE Software to Collaborate with the Software Engineering Institute on SATURN

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 26 October 2012—IEEE Software magazine is collaborating with Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute (SEI) on the ninth annual SEI Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) Conference. The Call for Submissions is now open.

The SATURN Conference, scheduled in Minneapolis, Minn., from 29 April to 3 May, 2013, is the flagship event of the SEI Architecture User Network, a community of architecture practitioners and researchers from around the world. The annual software architecture conference provides practicing software architects, industry thought leaders, developers, technical managers, and researchers a venue to meet, share ideas, network, and learn about new and current architecture technologies and practices.

This marks the fourth year that IEEE Software magazine, published by the IEEE Computer Society, will collaborate with the SEI on the SATURN Conference. The extended collaboration continues to enhance the conference experience for participants with talks by IEEE Software board members, networking events, and the opportunity to be published in an issue of IEEE Software magazine.

"We are pleased to continue collaborating with IEEE Software to offer the only architecture-related conference devoted exclusively to the needs of practitioners," said Bill Pollak, SATURN 2013 conference chair. "The IEEE Software collaboration brings benefits to presenters and attendees, including the chance to be recognized with an attendee-selected presenter award and the opportunity for an article based on the conference presentations to be published in IEEE Software."

The SATURN 2013 technical program will cover topics including, but not limited 

  • experiences and insights designing and developing front- and back-end architectures
  • lessons learned from successes and failures with integration
  • application of methods and tools, and
  • technical leadership

"At IEEE Software, our focus is on highlighting the latest advances in technologies for software engineering, including software architecting," said Forrest Shull, IEEE Software editor in chief. "But more than hearing about the technologies themselves, we are looking for the authors who can thoughtfully describe their strengths and weaknesses in practice. We are very happy to partner with SATURN because it is one of the best venues for hearing about such empirical results from the field, told by practicing software architects. It is an important snapshot of the leading edge of practice."

Presentations, lightning-talks, and tutorial abstracts are now being accepted for the SATURN 2013 conference through 7 January, 2013. For more information about SATURN 2013 and details about submitting an abstract, visit

President John Walz to Increase Visibility at IEEE Computer Society Sponsored Conferences

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 27 February, 2012 – President John Walz will kick off his effort to raise awareness of IEEE Computer Society offerings at sponsored conferences with a presentation this week at the High Performance Computing Architecture Conference in New Orleans.

Walz plans to deliver presentations at more than a dozen IEEE Computer Society-sponsored conferences during his term. The presentations will highlight Computer Society products and services, as well as the Technical and Conference Activities Board, which oversees IEEE Computer Society Technical Councils, Committees, and Task Forces. These groups united international networks of professionals with common interests in computer hardware, software, applications, and interdisciplinary fields.

“The Technical Councils, Committees, and Task Forces serve as the focal point for society activities within technical disciplines and directly influence standards development, conferences, publications, and educational activities,” said Walz. “Furthermore, they provide an important opportunity for member participation in the community.”
The Computer Society sponsors more than 200 conferences each year. Walz’s initiative seeks to promote the Computer Society’s value in furthering attendees’ professional and educational goals beyond the conference and its associated publication.

Walz will be appearing at the IEEE VLSI Test Symposium (VTS), 23-26 April; IEEE Security & Privacy Symposium, 18-23 May; IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS), 21-25 May; IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN), 25-28 June; IEEE Signature Conference on Computers, Software, and Applications (COMPSAC) and IEEE/IPSJ International Symposium on Applications and the Internet (SAINT), 16-20 July; Hot Chips, August; the IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance (ICSM), 23-30 September; IEEE International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages & Systems (MODELS), 1-5 October; IEEE e–Science Conference, 9-12 October; VisWeek, 14-19 October; CloudCom, 3-6 December; and Supercomputing 2012 (SC), 10-16 November.
