The 2010 Foundations of Software Engineering and Software Design and Productivity (FSE/SDP) Workshop on the Future of Software Engineering Research (FoSER) was part of the ACM SIGSOFT Eighteenth International Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (FSE-18). FoSER provided the international software engineering research community – including academic, industrial, and government research personnel – with a unique opportunity to develop, discuss, refine, and disseminate consequential new ideas about future investments in software engineering research. The committee defined five major discussion themes based on the 89 position papers published in the workshop proceedings available via ACM Digital Library. FOSER Workshop report “Future of Software Engineering Research” summarizes the results of these discussions.
