We are awaiting the announcement
of the next Stevens Award recipient.
It is anticipated that the award presentation and lecture
will be held in conjunction with the:
IEEE CSMR-WCRE 2014 "Software Evolution Week"
at the University of Antwerp in Belgium,
3-6 February 2014
The international Stevens Award was created to recognize outstanding contributions to the literature or practice of methods for software and systems development.
The Stevens Lecture on Software Development Methods presentations focus on lessons learned and challenges, with an emphasis on advancing or analyzing the state of software methods and their direction for the future.
This prestigious award lecture is named in memory of Wayne Stevens (1944-1993), a highly-respected consultant, author, pioneer, and advocate of the practical application of software methods and tools.
His 1974 IBM Systems Journal article "Structured Design" was the first
published on the topic and has been widely reprinted. Stevens was the author
of the books: Software Design: Concepts and Methods (Prentice-Hall Intl, 1991)
and Using Structured Design (Wiley, 1981).
His last article "Data Flow Analysis and Design" appears in the
Encyclopedia of Software Engineering (Wiley, 1994).
Stevens was the chief architect of application development
methodology for IBM's consulting group.
The Stevens Award and lecture is managed by the Reengineering Forum (REF) industry association. The award was founded by IWCASE, an international workshop association of users and developers of Computer Aided Software Engineering (CASE) technology, recently merged into REF. Stevens was a member of the IWCASE executive board.
