Survey on the impact of software engineering research in practice - open

Dear participant,

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of the first conference devoted to software engineering - an important milestone in our field.  Inspired by this, we, Diomidis Spinellis and Georgios Gousios, decided to run a study on the field's impact in software engineering practice. In parallel to our own analysis, we are asking you, the survey participant, to identify scientific works in the context of software engineering research that in your opinion were impactful on software engineering practice.

Please pick a paper that you believe had a great impact on the practice of our field and fill in the questions bellow in reference to this paper.

Thank you in advance,
Diomidis and Georgios
