ESE Colloquium

Empirical Software Engineering

Welcome to ESE-Colloquium, our almost weekly appointment for talks on software engineering research. We host presentations of works by our students (including, but not limited to, thesis presentations and research or implementation projects), our research team, and invited guests.

Attending the Colloquium

The ESE-Colloquium is currently being held as a hybrid event. Our regular schedule is:
Every Thursday, from 14:00 to 15:30, room 1.212, Universitätsstraße 38, 70569 Stuttgart, Germany.

Joining via Webex

  • Know your audience: The ESE colloquium is intended to be an open discussion platform for software engineering researchers. To get valuable feedback, you should include things such as the context, research questions, methodology, and threats to the validity of your research.
  • Schedule a presentation at least two weeks in advance.
  • Enter the date, thesis type, title, presenter(s), and supervisor(s) yourself via OpenCMS. If you have issues, please contact your IT administrator or the colloquium organizer.
  • If possible, final and intermediate talks should be mixed. Avoid having three final presentations in the same colloquium.
  • On the day of the presentation, please support your student in setting up their presentation. Arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of the colloquium. Then, make sure they...
