SOM (Catalan word to say "We are") is a joint ICREA-UOC research team located at Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3) in the wonderful area of Barcelona

We are interested in the broad area of systems and software engineering, especially promoting the rigorous use of software models and engineering principles in all software engineering tasks while keeping an eye on the most unpredictable element in any project: the people involved in it.

Contributions are always welcome. We look forward to work with software companies to learn more about their real problems and needs (hopefully, to later come back with a suitable solution!).
