During January 7-10, 2020, I was honoured to represent the Dept. of Engineering Sciences, University of Agder (UiA), Grimstad, and the Dept. of Mechanical, Electronic and Chemical Engineering at Oslo Metropolitan University (OsloMet) at the 53rd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS 2020), Maui, Hawaii, United States of America.
During the conference I engaged with several colleagues and researchers form around the world. I was particularly honoured to meet and discuss with Grady Booch. He is the American software engineer, best known for developing the Unified Modelling Language (UML) with Ivar Jacobson and James Rumbaugh. He is recognised internationally for his innovative work in software architecture, software engineering, and collaborative development environments. We exchanged different ideas and discussed a possible cooperation between our research groups.
