Working Sessions

Eight working sessions are scheduled for WICSA ECSA 2009.

Working sessions are two hours. Each working session contains three or four short papers about related subjects, and starts with 10-minute presentations of each short paper. The remaining time of the working session will be spent discussing the session's topic with the paper authors and other workshop participants. The working sessions will be facilitated by two working session chairs: one from industry and one from academia.

Sessions will use the conference wiki to provide paper preprints and other information to participants, formulate issues to discuss, and coordinate and capture session outcomes. Follow the links below to each working session's wiki page.
