CHOOSE, the Swiss Group for Original and Outside-the-box Software Engineering, is a special interest group of the SI (Swiss Informatics Society). CHOOSE is a non-profit organization that pushes the boundaries of software engineering at the intersection of programming languages, model-based engineering, visual analytics, NLP, AI, and other emerging technologies.

We support researchers in exploring better ways of crafting software and bridging the gap between research and industry.

We sponsor students and organize forums where researchers and industry professionals can exchange ideas.

Further details on the membership fees (discounts, collective membership, etc.) can be found in the SI overview. Registration is made via the SI entry form.
