We report here on the Eighth International Workshop on Managing Technical Debt, collocated with the International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution (ICSME 2016). The technical debt research community continues to expand through collaborations of industry, tool vendors, and academia. The major themes of discussion this year indicate convergence on a common definition on technical debt and its elements which drive the maturation of a research roadmap, demonstrating that managing technical debt is a mainstream topic in software engineering research bringing empirical analysis, data science, software design and architecture analysis and automation among other challenges together.

I am full professor of Software Engineering at the University of Québec in Montréal, in its Software Engineering faculty. I have more than 30 years of Helthcare, Finance/Banking and Telecommunications IT industry experience, especially in Cloud Computing, Big Data, software acquisition, contracts, software quality assurance and business process management. I am more comfortable with open source, practical applications and technology transfer to industry.
Currently I concentrate on research projects. In the past I was the recipient of the ISO award for higher education in standardization in 2011, as well as the chair of the Software Engineering gratuate program and of the Software Engineering departement. I also published Software Engineering Books: Software Maintenance Improvement and Software Quality Assurance.
