This year’s conference welcomed several notable keynote speakers. They were Ahmad Bambang from Pertamina Indonesia, Benhard Sitohang from Bandung Institute of Technology, Prof. Michel Chaudron from Sweden’s Chalmers University and Dr. Elmar Kiesling from Vienna University of Technology.
The keynote speakers covered different facets of knowledge and software engineering, including Big knowledge, the challenge for knowledge-based approaches in model-based software engineering, and the changes over the years in IT development processes, dubbed the ‘Tectonics of Data and Software Engineering’.
