Presentation: "Opening Keynote: The Science of Computing and the Engineering of Software"
Time: Wednesday 09:00 - 10:00
Location: Fleming Room
Tony Hoare has devoted his academic research life (1968 - 1999) to the purer aspects of the science of computer programming. Then he moved to Microsoft research, and has seen some of his scientific discoveries transferred into software engineering tools, and used routinely in programming practice.
He will speculate on the prospects of division of labour between academic research and industrial developments, leading to further progress of the science of computing and its exploitation in engineering practice.
