Exploring the Unexplored in Social Software Development Platforms

On a sunny but slightly cool Friday in Irvine, California, some of the interesting and well-known figures in social software research gathered to share their thoughts, research interest and proceed into the future.

The official workshop contained presentations about current research pursuits, brainstorming sessions about future research ideas and last but not least, less exciting, but important discussions about grant proposals.

We would like to express our gratitude to Debra Brodbeck (Assistant Directior – Institute for Software Research) and David Redmiles (Professor – Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences at UCI) for their organisational efforts.

Saying Goodbye and Welcome

The SDC Lab has finished collaborating with the current group of students from South Korea. In the meantime, the 2018 Fall Quarter has also finished. Work continues by the lab members, but maybe with a slower pace as the holidays are around the corner.

Goodbye Lunch at the UTC.

Ice Cream Meeting – SDCL Social

As part of the renewal process of the Software Design and Collaboration Laboratory we started a new experimental initiative: the Ice Cream Meetings on every Friday!

The non-formal structure of the “meeting” helps team building, the discussion about ongoing research and everyday life around the lab.
