The 3rd edition of SEDES workshop took place in Gaia in 24/Sep/2009, as a collocated event with ICSEA'2009.

This edition involved the discussion of the work of 15 PhD students in software engineering-related topics. The workshop got also the participation of 15 opponents that analyzed the state of development of the PhD thesis of the students.

For 10 of the students, each presented a summary of their work during 5 minutes. Next, two opponents asked questions during 10 minutes each. In the end, the audience asked a few more questions.

For 5 of the students, each presented a summary of their work during 5 minutes. Next, one opponent asked questions during 15 minutes, using a poster as the support for the discussion. In the end, the audience asked a few more questions.

All participants elected Nuno Flores and Hugo Sereno Ferreira for the two best papers award, Sergio Bryton for the best poster award, and Pedro Guerreiro for the best opponent award.
