California Software Symposium (CSS)

The annual California Software Symposium (CSS) brings together researchers and practitioners to share ideas and experiences through presentations, panel discussions, and debates. CSS provides a forum for both reporting research results and supporting interaction between academia and industry thereby providing insight into the applicability and utility of research ideas in commercial settings. Emphasis is on early dissemination of new ideas and empirical evaluation and on experience with software techniques on actual projects. This annual event provides a unique opportunity for industry exposure to expertise, research, and lessons learned from a broad base of participants.

The California Software Symposium is the descendant of the Irvine Software Symposium (ISS). The symposium series is now co-sponsored by IRUS and USC's Center for Software Engineering (CSE). CSS continues in the path established the Irvine Software Symposium and features regional, national, and international participation.

This one-day meeting features high quality peer reviewed papers and presentations. A Program Committee, consisting of IRUS and CSE faculty, IRUS sponsors, CSE affiliates, and other regional experts, meets to review papers, presentations, and panel proposals, choose keynote and invited speakers, plan the program, and provide direction.

A formal bound proceedings is published each year. Proceedings of previous CSS and ISS have been distributed around the country and beyond, providing excellent exposure.
