ICSE 2018 will celebrate two big milestones for our discipline: the 40th incarnation of the ICSE conference itself, and the 50th anniversary of the NATO Software Engineering Conference held in Garmisch, Germany, in 1968, which is widely considered to have given birth to the field of software engineering. We have prepared several events that will take place during the second day of ICSE 2018, Thursday, May 31st, and that will involve both software engineering pioneers and organizers of previous ICSEs. This is shaping up to be a day to remember, with keynote talks by [Margaret Hamilton] (https://www.icse2018.org/info/keynotes#Margaret) and [Fred Brooks] (https://www.icse2018.org/info/keynotes#Fred), a panel involving several participants of the Garmisch conference, and a gathering of many of ICSE’s past general and program chairs. In the evening we continue the celebration with the the conference banquet. The next day, Friday June 1, Ivar Jacobson, will conclude this memorable event. ####SE 50 Celebration Program
