INESC-ID researcher and full professor at Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto (FEUP), Rui Maranhão*, has recently talked to Exame Informática, from Trust in News Group, about the upcoming 2024 edition of the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), which will take place in Lisbon. 

The interview was an opportunity for Rui Maranhão, chair of the conference, to share some exciting news and thoughts about the event. This included the record numbers of participants from African countries, and emphasised the fundamental role ICSE has in the software engineering community. ICSE not only highlights recent innovations and research in the field but ethical and environmental concerns as well, while also defining future tendencies and fostering collaboration between academia and industry. 

ICSE is considered the premier international software engineering conference. This year, it will be held at Centro Cultural de Belém, in Lisbon, from April 14 to April 20. Registrations have reached record numbers, and the conference will focus on the link between software engineering and artificial intelligence (AI), with a particular emphasis on Large Language Models.
