1 ’05 Eur Ing Dr. A. J. (Tony) Cowling Senior Lecturer Verification and Testing Research Group Department of Computer Science, U. of Sheffield Homepages: Personal: Group: List of main empirical research areas:  Comparing complete development processes  Understanding how processes actually work  How formal methods are actually used Main motivation for joining ISERN:  To interact more effectively with the ESE community  contributing our experience, results, etc  gaining from the experience and results of others Planned contributions to the community:  Experience of large-scale experimentation Candidate member

2 ’05 Main empirical research areas:  Comparing complete development processes:  agile versus document-driven processes  combining the best features of different processes;  Understanding how processes actually work:  what process features affect efficiency?  what process features affect quality of products?  how do process features interact?  how do individual personalities and team aspects affect these?  How formal methods are actually used:  the role of testing and verification in achieving quality  factors influencing their use in practice. Candidate member Eur Ing Dr. A. J. (Tony) Cowling Senior Lecturer Verification and Testing Research Group Department of Computer Science, U. of Sheffield

3 ’05 Main motivation for joining ISERN:  To interact more effectively with the ESE community  contributing our experience, results, etc  gaining from the experience and results of others  mutually advancing knowledge and practice Expectations  To input to collaborations  our experience is distinctive, but comparatively limited  To benefit from collaborations  ideas that might help us to work more effectively  To achieve more in collaboration than we could on our own Motivation & Expectation

4 ’05 Planned contributions to the community:  Experience of large-scale experimentation  an infrastructure for comparative experiments on complete processes  a framework in which to fit comparisons of individual methods  Experience of developing curricula in software engineering  including the projects which we observe in our experiments  with a strong emphasis on appropriate formal methods and testing Current collaborations with ISERN (if any):  Contributions to this meeting:  session on data ownership  session on balancing practices (inspections, testing, etc) Contribution & Collaboration
