Professor Barbara Kitchenham was recently awarded the 2019 Distinguished Women in Science & Engineering (WISE) Leadership Award

The IEEE Computer Society Technical Council on Software Engineering (TCSE) has awarded Professor Barbara Kitchenham the 2019 TCSE Distinguished Women in Science & Engineering (WISE) Leadership Award.

After considering a strong set of nominees, it was Professor Kitchenham's pioneering work in methodology, as applicable to software engineering research. She founded the field of evidence-based software engineering, and provided us all with very detailed guidelines on how to conduct systematic reviews. Prof. Kitchenham has also mentored  many women in our field, in particular through the EASE conferences at Keele.

This award will be presented at ICSE 2019 in Montréal, Canada. The TCSE Chair (Rick Kazman) will be in touch about the presentation.
