SpaRCIM - Software Engineering and Production Technologies Society founded. For the first time in Spain, a scientific society about Software Engineering and Software Production Technologies (SE&PT) has been founded with the aim of contributing to scientific and technological advances in these subjects. The society (the Spanish name is SISTEDES) is a non-profit scientific organisation. SISTEDES will become the scientific voice vis-a-vis the public sector and governmental institutions. The aim is to promote research, innovation and technological transfer between the different sectors and to establish relationships and agreements with other international societies. To accomplish these goals an annual multiconference (called CEDI) will be organized. 22 different conferences will run at the same time. Many of the SISTEDES society founders are ERCIM members, among them the SISTEDES president and vice-president.
