For example I am also a member of AIAA’s Emerging Technologies Standing Committee (ETC). It has 3 sub committees (Space, Aero and Multidisciplinary). Each sub committee watches several emerging technologies and comes up with a top-10 list. The top entries from these lists are generally selected for additional exploration/funding by DOD, DARPA, NASA, AFRL etc. I have not seen an entry from “Software” area. I want our TC to work with ETC to watch, select and highlight Emerging Software (not software systems) related technologies
5. As of now SOFTC does not have a niche.
“Move SSTC from the Software Engineering process centric (which is mostly sterile) approach to Actual Software Systems centric (Mostly creative (some thing Similar to IEEE Software)) focus” -- from my TC chair Vision Statement
