The Advanced Ibero-American School on Software Engineering (EIbAIS) represents the CIbSE initiative to disseminate Software Engineering knowledge in Ibero-America. It started as a natural evolution of the CIbSE tutorials and short courses.

EIbAIS aims to promote a forum for discussions related to Software Engineering and to its related technologies and theoretical foundations, via the participation of practitioners, undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers. The lectures are presented by volunteers engaged in contributing to the CIbSE community and in spreading Software Engineering knowledge in Ibero-America.

EIbAIS is organized into two categories of sessions: state-of-the-practice and state-of-the-art sessions.

The sessions regarding the state-of-the-practice offer discussions on topics of general interest and usually representing local demand. These sessions support the sharing of knowledge and practical issues to the participants, presenting evidence-based software engineering results to the audience. Examples of state-of-practice topics include CASE tools, software testing of conventional systems, scenario-based specifications, surveys, controlled experiments, and so on.

The sessions regarding the state-of-the-art offer discussion on topics of prospective interest and usually representing the perspectives of the Software Engineering research & innovation community. These sessions intend to provide information on ongoing and next to coming Software Engineering technologies candidates that could represent breakthroughs concepts in the field. Examples of state-of-the-art topics include requirements specification for ubiquitous systems, software testing of context-aware systems, software engineering for the Internet of Things, simulation-based experiments in software engineering, synthesis of evidence, and so on.

All participants that take part in the sessions will get a certificate of participation, indicating the sessions, lecturers, and contents.
