IEEE Computer Society to Host Fourth Annual Software Experts Summit on July 17 at Microsoft

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 27 March 2013 – The fourth annual Software Experts Summit, "Smart Data Science: Harnessing Data for Intelligent Decision-Making," will be held on July 17 at Microsoft in Redmond, Washington, and feature leading experts from around the world.
 
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Software magazine, the one-day SES13 will provide organizations with solid advice on making intelligent decisions about handling today's increasing volume and array of data.
 
"Companies and research institutes are facing a deluge of data--2.5 quintillion bytes per day, by IBM's estimate. In this environment, organizations need to learn to be smart about data—exploring analytics and new techniques to deal with the volume and diversity of data," said Forrest Shull, a division director at Fraunhofer Center for Experimental Software Engineering and editor in chief of IEEE Software. "SES13 will give attendees exposure to the latest ideas and strategies on Smart Data Science from experts in both academia and private industry."
 
Registration is now open. The early-bird deadline is June 1. To register, visit www.computer.org/ses13.
 
Among the speakers from industry and academia will be Ayse Bener from Ryerson University, Wolfram Schulte from Microsoft Research, Shull, James Whittaker from Microsoft, and Paul Zikopoulos from IBM. SES 2013 will take place at the Microsoft Conference Center, located on the main Microsoft Headquarters Campus in Redmond.
 
The event will help organizations:
  • use even small sets of data to guide decision making due to inconsistent data structures
  • analyze different types of data, such as text messages, multimedia presentations, and video streams
  • effectively use technologies that create and manage data.
