Synomic published Proceedings of European Workshop on Software Ecosystems (EWSECO) 2016

Proceedings of the fifth European Workshop on Software Ecosystems (EWSECO 2016) are available!

The research on software ecosystems proved to be advancing very well. The goal of this event was like in the previous 4 years, to bring together the research community from all over Europe and share, present and discuss their latest research with business experts from the software industry. Research on software ecosystems still is a young and emerging field. While many researchers are active in this field, vibrant research communities still have to be built.

This is why we created the European workshop on software ecosystems (EWSECO) to:

  • bring together researchers from all over Europe to present and discuss software ecosystem topics
  • make sure that the research is mirrored with real problems in software business,
  • we invited professionals from software companies to join the discussion
  • Program committee 2016:
    Peter Buxmann, Thomas Aidan Curran, Slinger Jansen, Thomas Kude, Karl Michael Popp
