U.S. Leadership in Software Engineering & AI Engineering: Critical Needs & Priorities Workshop

Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Software Productivity, Sustainability, and Quality (SPSQ) Interagency Working Group are partnering for a U.S. Leadership in Software Engineering & AI Engineering: Critical Needs & Priorities workshop, to inform a community strategy for building and maintaining U.S. leadership in software engineering and AI engineering, and positively impact progress in multiple application domains.

This event will be held in-person at the NSF offices in Alexandria, VA, June 20-21, and will feature a variety of thought leaders from multiple federal agencies, industry, and academia. The goal is to hear about critical national needs in a variety of domains, and engage in a robust discussion with the research and industry communities about software and AI technologies that can help, and research gaps that need to be addressed to support these national goals.

The workshop will provide an opportunity for discussions on the motivating challenges at several federal agencies (DHS, NASA, DOD, DOE, NIH, and others) as well as with researchers and companies who are working to chart the solution space. The agenda features significant time for discussion, in order to support the exchange of views among industry, government, and academia thought leaders.  A workshop report will be produced that summarizes the discussion and key take-aways for the field.

There is a registration charge of $100 for attending the two days of the workshop. A reception will be provided on June 20 to allow for additional networking opportunities.
