Welcome to ISR

Welcome to the Institute for Software Research (ISR) at the University of California, Irvine.  ISR is the only Organized Research Unit in the University of California system with a focus on Software Research.  Our goal is to advance software and information technology through research partnerships. Here at ISR, we have become the intersection between cutting edge software research and real world practice.

Over the years we have built an impressive community of academic software researchers and industrial innovators.  ISR offers a range of opportunities for participation and engagement.  We invite you to join us as we continue to transform the field of Software Engineering.
