You drive advanced software engineering methods, implement ambitious
architectures and are open to cutting-edge innovation? Attend this
conference, meet people that share your goals, and get to know the

practically useful for software developers.  This could take the form
of e.g.:

- experience reports
- introductory talks on technical background
- demos and how-tos


We accept proposals for presentations of 45 minutes (40 minutes talk +
5 minutes questions), as well as 90 minute tutorials for beginners.
