The New Faculty Symposium (NFS) aims to help new Software Engineering faculty
members launch successful careers. Few new faculty are prepared for the diversity
of types of work they will be asked to undertake. Moreover, their
doctoral training has most likely not prepared them for much beyond
how to conduct research themselves and, perhaps, how to teach topics
that are close to their research area.
The 2019 offering of ICSE’s NFS will build on the successful formula
of prior symposia by connecting prospective and junior faculty with
experienced faculty members. The symposium will provide plenty
of time for informal interaction and will facilitate conversations
with a series of short talks covering the broad range of issues
faced by faculty members.
In 2019, we will seek to engage the broader Software Engineering
community by collecting common questions from junior faculty,
answers to those questions from senior faculty, and then curating
a set of frequently asked questions that can serve as a reference.
