Research 2.0 and Software Engineering 2.0: How Community Engineering will Change our Worlds


The development and evolution of Ultra Large Scale Systems raises problems beyond Turing Machines : Software is also about people. As we are entering the 'Information Age', we can’t afford anymore to ignore that. Internet is about hardware and protocols ; but the World Wide Web and especially the Web 2.0 is also about people. In this presentation we show how Community Engineering and Web 2.0 techniques can help both researchers and engineers to cope with the increasing complexity of their worlds. We advocate the need for an international network of people, languages and transformations and show first results in this direction.
