Welcome Message


We would like to warmly invite you to ISSRE 2020 in Coimbra. ISSRE has become over the years a forum to present the best world research in software reliability engineering, and Coimbra will be a magnificent setting to further that status. The University of Coimbra is one of the oldest Universities in Europe (established in 1289), and Coimbra is a small city built around the University, again along the European tradition of University towns. 

Coimbra is a vibrant city in the center of Portugal built around the University of Coimbra (UC) and is the home of many high-tech companies that ship software products worldwide. The historical campus has been classified as UNESCO World Heritage in 2013 under the name “Universidade de Coimbra – Alta e Sofia”. Coimbra is a fascinating destination that you should not miss! From Coimbra you can also easily reach many other fantastic places in Portugal. By train, bus, or car, one can get to Oporto, Lisbon, and many small villages in the interior of the country, where the food, the people, and the landscape will surprise you and create memories for life. 

The ISSRE 2020 conference will be held at the São Francisco Convent which is a fusion between the old and modern architecture and is an emblematic building of Coimbra landscape. 

We hope to be able to receive you here next October!
