ITI Techmedia Research Tools Demonstration Prize
ITI Techmedia is proud
to be a sponsor of the 23rd ASE Conference, taking place
in L’Aquila from 15-19 September 2008. ITI Techmedia is delighted
to offer a special award in the Research Tools Demonstration track.
A prize of 1250 eu ($1950) will be awarded to the research tool which
demonstrates capabilities which are of most relevance to application
in the mainstream software industry.
ITI Techmedia’s research
indicates that there is a clear market need for better solutions to
help reduce the number of critical errors in software design. Software
development is undoubtedly getting more complex and sophisticated with
increasing pressure to get to market quickly. These pressures can limit
the extent of software testing that takes place, therefore eliminating
errors early in the process is becoming ever more critical. ITI
Techmedia is funding a 5.4m eu ($8.4m) R&D programme creating software
design and development technologies which will play a role in reducing
the incidence of critical errors in mainstream software.
The research tools demonstration
at the Conference which shows the best mix of innovation and relevance
to real life software development challenges will be awarded the prize
on Friday 19 September, the final day of the Conference.
