Festschrift for Lee Osterweil

Festschrift in Celebration of Leon J. Osterweil
Tuesday May 24 at ICSE 2011, Honolulu, Hawaii


Software engineering research can trace its roots to a small number of highly influential individuals. Among that select group is Prof. Leon J. Osterweil, whose work has fundamentally defined or impacted major directions in software analysis, development tools and environments, and software process. His exceptional and sustained contributions to the field have been recognized with awards from ACM SIGSOFT for research and education.

The Festschrift in celebration of Lee's achievements will feature presentations by prominent members of our community, examining the past and modern influence of Lee's work on flow analysis, software tools and environments, and of course software process. Every attendee will receive a copy of the newly published book, "Engineering of Software: The Continuing Contributions of Leon J. Osterweil". Published by Springer, the book assembles Lee's most important publications to date together with several new contributions from leading authors.
