The 16th CEISEE symposium will be held by Beijing Jiaotong University, Beijing, China, in May 2020. The theme of the CEISEE 2020 will be Software Engineering Education in the New Information Technology Background.


The CEISEE aims at exploring new approach to develop software engineering discipline and education in both China and Europe, according to the changing tendency of technical development of software engineering and educational requirements of the software talents all over the world. The CEISEE is a good platform for the educators, industrialists and governmental officers related to software engineering education to exchange their ideas, share their experience, and develop their academic community in this domain.


The CEISIE/CEISEE symposiums were very successful and attracted great attentions from educators, industrialists and governmental officers, who are interested in software engineering education, in both China and Europe. Until now, more than 1000 participants from 23 countries, e.g. China, Ireland, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Russia, USA, Australia, etc. have attended symposiums.


The China-Europe International Symposium on Software Engineering Education (CEISEE) was evolved from the China-Europe International Symposium on Software Industry Oriented Education (CEISIE), which was founded in 2005, according to rapid development of software engineering education in both China and Europe.

The China-Europe International Symposium on Software Industry Oriented Education was initialized from an international education project, EMERSION project (Education to Meet the Requirements of Software Industry and Beyond- Establishing, Implementing and Evaluating an Industry Oriented Education Model in China) which is supported by ‘Asia-Link Programme’ of European Commission, with the collaboration of Dublin Institute of Technology(DIT) in Ireland and Harbin Institute of Technology(HIT) in China. During the EMERSION project, the members would like to share educational achievements and experience with more universities and institutes in Europe and China.

In January 2005, the 1st China-Europe International Symposium on Software Industry Oriented Education was held in HIT, Harbin, China. The initial abbreviation of the symposium was CEIS-SIOE. In 2006, the 2nd CIES-SIOE was again held in HIT, Harbin. In that conference, it was decided that this conference should be held each year in exchanged side of either China or Europe. Then the 3rd Symposium was held in DIT, Dublin, Ireland, in 2007. The initial abbreviation of the symposium was changed from CEIS-SIOE into CEISIE. The 4th CEISIE symposium was held in Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, China, in 2008. The 5th CEISIE symposium was held in University of Bordeaux 1, Bordeaux, France, in 2009. The 6th CEISIE symposium took place in Northwestern Poly-Technical University, Xi’an, China, in 2010. The 7th CEISIE symposium was held in University of Northampton, Northampton, UK, in 2011. Then it was decided to change the name of the symposium from CEISIE into CEISEE (China-Europe International symposium on Software Engineering Education), in order to extend the scopes of the conference and to emphasize development of software engineering discipline. The 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th CEISEE symposium was held by Shanghai Jiaotong University, Shanghai, China in 2012, University of Pavia, Milan, Italy in 2013, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, China in 2014, Applied University Zwickau, Zwickau, Germany in 2015, Northeastern University, Shenyang, China in 2016, University of Derby (UK), Athens, Greece in 2017, Harbin Institute of Technology, Shenzhen in 2018, and Brisbane, Portugal in 2019 respectively.
