1. Conference Theme

EuroSPI is unique in the way it brings both communities, researchers and
industry, together. It is also unique in the way that we produce two
proceedings, research papers with Springer and industry/experience papers
with Wiley.

Thus researchers are asked to write scientific papers with a practical
background which could be re-used in industry.

Thus industry experts are asked to write experience / industry papers with
a vision which could fruitfully push the ideas of researchers again.

This background corresponds with the theme as follows:

- "Experiences with the Implementation": It is not enough to describe a
new method or idea. We need proof or case studies that the metod worked.

- "Improvement and Innovation ": The applied methods and techniques shall
have a focus on innovating and improving processes and products.


- "Related Benefits in the Organisation": The papers shall outline the
measured / analysed benefit for the organisation.

3. Programme Committees

EuroSPI has an industry and a scientific programme committee.
Both committees are formed by more than 70 well known industry
experts and researchers from 18 different countries.

Each contribution is peer reviewed by at least two different experts.

The conference has been recognised by world wide known
scientic publishers:

18 selected research papers are published in the Springer
CCIS (Communications in Computer and Information Science) series.

)From 24 selected industry papers (published in the industry
proceedings) 12 will be selected for a special
issue in the Wiley Interscience SPIP (Software Process
Improvement in Practice) series.

The programme committees are published on the web site:
2010.eurospi.net

5. History of EuroSPI

EuroSPI's mission is to develop an experience and knowledge exchange
platform for Europe where SPI practices can be discussed and exchanged and
knowledge can be gathered and shared. This mission is implemented by four
major action lines:

1. An annual EuroSPI conference supported by Software Process Improvement
Networks from different EU countries.
2. Establishing an Internet based knowledge library, newsletters, and a
set of proceedings and recommended books.
3. Establishing an effective team of national representatives (in future
from each EU country) growing step by step into more countries of Europe.
4. Establishing a European Qualification Framework for a pool of professions
related with SPI and management. This is supported by European
certificates and exam systems.


EuroSPI represents a European experience forum collaborating
with nearly all SPINs in Europe. EuroSPI offers experiences which
can be re-used creating benefits in your own organisation .


EuroSPI is a successful initiative since 1994.
Annual conferences were held

1994 in Dublin (Ireland),

10. European Certification and Qualification Association

EuroSPI also established an umbrella initiative for establishing a
European Qualification Network in which different SPINs and national
initiatives join mutually beneficial collaborations:

EQN , European Quality Network, LLP Program , 2005 - 2007

EU Cert Campous - LLP Program, 2008 - 2009

Europe wide launch of EU Cert - DEUCERT, LLP Program, 2010 - 2011

In collaboration with the European Union (supported by the EU LLP
Programme) a European certification association has been created for the
IT and services sector to offer SPI knowledge and certificates to
industry, establishing close knowledge transfer links between research and
industry.

With the support of the E-Learning manager project (2008 – 2010) an
infrastructure for online learning has been set up for European
professions related with SPI.

The online campus and certification systems are fully operative
and members from 18 EU countries are driving the initiative.

The history of the city encompasses a period of more than 2,000 years.
Grenoble has been the capital of Dauphine since the 11th century.
The city experienced a period of economic expansion in the 19th
and 20th centuries, symbolized by the holding of the X Olympic
Winter Games in 1968.
The Bastille, an ancient series of fortifications, sits on the
mountainside overlooking Grenoble, and is visible from many points in the
city. The Bastille is one of Grenoble's most visited
tourist attractions, and is a good vantage point for viewing
the town below and the surrounding mountains.
