Session 1:

Title: The Role of Abstraction in Software Engineering
Date: Sunday, May 21, 2006
Time: 1600 - 1700 Hrs
Venue: Shanghai International Convention Center, Shanghai, China
Speaker: John Kuriakose, Principal Architect, Infosys Technologies

Why is it that some software engineers are able to produce clear, elegant designs and programs, while others cannot? One hypothesis is that the answer lies in the ability to perform abstract thinking and to exhibit abstraction skills.

This one-day workshop consists of theory and practice based presentations, group work and discussions. The workshop addresses organizational, managerial and cognitive perspectives of abstraction

John Kuriakose will present a paper titled "From Concepts and Knowledge to Representation - a viewpoint on the role of Abstraction in Software"

John Kuriakose John Kuriakose is a Principal Architect at the Software Engineering and Technology Labs at Infosys. In his research, he has been focusing on providing tool-based guidance in the analysis, comprehension and transformation of source code thereby, significantly influencing software development.

Session 3:

Topic: Poster presentation at ICSE 2006 Poster Session
Date: Tuesday, May 23, 2006 Time: 1800 - 2100 Hrs
Date: Wednesday, May 24, 2006 Time: 1730-1845 Hrs
Venue: Shanghai International Convention Center, Shanghai, China
Speaker: Renuka Sindhgatta, Principal Architect, Infosys Technologies

The presentation is on an approach for locating common samples of source code from a repository by providing extensions to an information retrieval system. Extending an information retrieval system to search source code allows for more specific querying on code while retaining the scalability of system in handling a large repository of source code.
