The software challenges of the new millennium include more mature users expecting functioning software, more critical technical and business applications requiring dependable software, globalization requiring distributed development teams, and paradigm clashes between new and old economy firms. Software engineering has to be evaluated anew in terms of "what can't we do today, and what do we have to learn how do in order to meet those challenges". This panel discusses and proposes urgent research topics as well as research programs to address those topics. Although, such discussions are going on in all different countries (e.g., PITAC in the US), similar activities in Germany, this international panel will add new perspectives thought intercultural cross-fertilization. The panel will consist of three parts: Position statements and brief discussion among panelists, questions/answers from the audience, and summary.
