Central and Eastern European
|Organized since 2005, CEE-SECR is the key annual software event in Central and Eastern Europe that is regularly attended by over 500 participants from local industry. Our total reach is over 1 million software and IT people from CEE region (online + media coverage).
The conference was initially positioned as a Russian event; however, it attracted speakers from 15 countries and regular attendees from even more places, so in 2009 the conference is repositioned as a CEE event.
CEE-SECR Program Committee is assembled by recognized software engineering experts from academia and industry (including three Academicians from Estonian, Russian and Ukrainian national Academies of Sciences); over 40% of PC members are IEEE members.
The conference employs a double-blind review process producing a high quality program with acceptance rate about 50%. The list of keynote speakers from previous conferences includes Ivar Jacobson, Erich Gamma, Michael Cusumano, Larry Constantine, Claudia Dent, Michael Fagan, Bill Hefley, Rick Kazman, Steve Masters, Mark Paulk and other software thought leaders as well as VP-s and Technical Fellows of major high-tech corporations. The list of this year keynote speakers is available here: /keynotes.
The conference is usually supported by Adobe, EMC2, HP, IBM, Intel, INTSPEI, Microsoft, ORACLE, Siemens, Sun Microsystems, VMWare, etc. The event is endorsed by most of the key local software/IT associations.
