The first paper, about the topic of Traceability was authored by Spanish colleague José Alfaro from and Pannon researchers Dirk-Jan Kamann and Szabolcs Sebrek. The second paper was on the use of Experiments and dealt with the impact of professional norms on behaviour. This paper was authored by Max Boodie (NL), Dirk-Jan Kamann (Pannon) and Jana Vyrastekova (NL). Both papers were received well and led to new cooperation with researchers from several German universities, Dublin, Michigan and Milano.
