Miranda to Speak at SPICE Conference

By Josh Quicksall

Dr. Eduardo Miranda, Professor in the Institute for Software Research's Masters of Software Engineering Professional Programs, was recently selected to present his paper "Nominal Group Interview Technique to Support Lightweight Process Assessments: Description and Experience Report" [1] at the 16th International SPICE Conference on Process Improvement and Capability Determination, June 9-10 in Dublin, Ireland.

The SPICE conference is an annual event hosted by the SPICE User Group. The conference regularly draws technical leaders from around the globe for the three day summit.

Miranda's paper, which proposes the use of a group interview technique and the use of user stories to conduct lightweight processes assessments while simultaneously promoting the development of a shared understanding of the problems facing the organization, will be published in Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) following the conference proceedings.
