The PROFES Steering Committee is responsible for constituting and guiding each edition of PROFES,
the International Conference on Product-Focused Software Process Improvement and for establishing
and evaluating practices that are binding upon the organizers of each conference for the continued
technical success of PROFES.
In January 2017, we implemented a new concept for the SC membership. The PROFES SC now consists of two permanent members and the General Chairs of the two past, the current, and future PROFES. Changes happen after the respective conference, when the decision about the future event was made.
In December 2020, due to the Covid-19 Crisis and the decision that we keep the PROFES2020 committee for PROFES2021, we decided to not rotate out the 2018 Chairs. Further, to give the steering committee a broader basis, we decided to include the two past years.
The table below lists the current PROFES Steering Committee members.
