Fraunhofer IESE Offering Industry Day and “Science Night” on 8 October 2010

Press Release / September 20, 2010

On Friday, 8 October, at 11 a.m., the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE) will hold an Industry Day on the topic of “Safety & Reliability for Embedded Systems“, which will lead up to the “Science Night”.


The Industry Day will offer interesting professional presentations by Fraunhofer IESE scientists to all participants. Professor Peter Liggesmeyer will speak about “New Developments in the Area of Embedded Systems“, and “Software Quality” will be the topic of a workshop led by Dr. Thomas Kuhn.
In addition, there will be three industry presentations illustrating the central role that embedded systems play in technical products. One current example of the relevance of embedded systems will be the presentation “Safety in Rail Technology” by Reiner Heilmann, Siemens CT. Following the presentations, participants will have a chance to meet directly with the researchers.
From 7 p.m. until midnight, Fraunhofer IESE will open its world of research to visitors in the context of the Kaiserslautern “Science Night“. Various project demonstrations as well as guided tours of the Ambient Assisted Living laboratory will provide deep insights into the work of the institute.
Entertainment will also be offered – with music ranging from funk via classic rock to reggae, performed by the band “Cameleon” from Kaiserslautern.
