Please consider submitting to the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) at the ICSE 2014 conference in Hyderabad, India. I am on the program committee. Please submit your papers by November 22. The conference will be held in June 2014.
ICSE 2014 will host an ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), sponsored by Microsoft Research. This competition offers undergraduate and graduate students a unique forum to experience the research world, present their research results to ICSE attendees, and compete for prizes.
The ACM SRC at ICSE 2014 consists of three rounds: (1) research abstract submission; (2) poster presentation; and (3) research talk. The winners of the competition will be invited to participate in the ACM Student Research Competition Grand Finals.
Participate in this exciting competition: Submit your work to the ACM Student Research Competition at ICSE 2014. Get a chance to win a travel stipend to attend the ICSE conference in Hyderabad!
Please consider submitting to the New Ideas and Emerging Results (NIER) track of the ICSE 2014 conference in Hyderabad, India. I am on the program committee. Please submit your papers by November 22. The conference will be held in June 2014.
The goals of the ICSE 2014 New Ideas and Emerging Results rack are (1) to provide a forum for innovative, thought-provoking research in software engineering, which is not yet supported by solid results but rather a strong and well motivated scientific intuition, and (2) to accelerate the exposure of the community to early yet promising and potentially inspiring research efforts.
NIER 2014 seeks papers challenging the status quo of the software engineering discipline, or addressing cutting-edge software engineering challenges with: new research directions, unusual synergies with other disciplines, or provocative ideas.
NIER is the perfect place for a paper that (1) does not fit into an existing specialized conference series, or (2) aims at setting the agenda for a new line of research and a series of future papers.
Christian Bird, Tim Menzies, and I are editing a book on “Analyzing Software Data”, to be published by Morgan Kaufmann, due out 2014. For details on how to submit a chapter proposal, please see the call for chapters.
Proposals are due October 15. Please send us your chapter ideas!
Analyzing Software Data
Please consider submitting to the International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and Validation in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. I am on the program committee. Please submit your papers by September 30 (abstracts September 23). The conference will be held on March 31 to April 4.
The IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and Validation (ICST) is the premier conference for research in all areas related to software testing. The ever-increasing complexity, ubiquity, and dynamism of modern software systems is making software quality assurance activities, and in particular software testing more challenging. ICST provides an ideal forum where academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners can present their latest approaches for ensuring the quality of today’s complex software systems, exchange and discuss ideas, and compare experiences. In this spirit, ICST welcomes both research papers that present high quality original work and industry reports from practitioners that present real world experiences from which others can benefit.
Please consider submitting to the 5th International Workshop on Empirical Software Engineering in Practice (IWESEP 2013) in Bangkok, Thailand. I am on the program committee of the workshop. Please submit your papers by August 16 (abstracts: August 11). The workshop will be held on December 2 and is co-located with APSEC 2013.
The objective of the International Workshop on Empirical Software Engineering in Practice (IWESEP) is to foster the development of the area by providing a forum where researchers and practitioners can report on and discuss new research results and applications in the area of empirical software engineering. The workshop encourages the exchange of ideas within the international community so as to be able to understand, from an empirical viewpoint, the strengths and weaknesses of technology in use and new technologies, with the expectation of furthering the more generic field of software engineering.
The workshop focuses on the processes, design and structure of empirical studies as well as the results of specific studies. These studies may be on original or replicated studies, varying from controlled experiments to field studies, from quantitative to qualitative.
Please consider submitting to the Second International Workshop on Software Mining in Palo Alto, California, USA. I am on the program committee. Please submit your papers by August 8. The workshop will be held on November 11, 2013 and is co-located with ASE.
Software systems have been playing important roles in business, scientific research, and our everyday lives. It is critical to improve both software productivity and quality, which are major challenges to software engineering researchers and practitioners. In recent years, software mining has emerged as a promising means to address these challenges. It has been successfully applied to discover knowledge from software artifacts (e.g., specifications, source code, documentations, execution logs, and bug reports) to improve software quality and development process (e.g., to obtain the insights for the causes leading to poor software quality, to help software engineers locate and identify problems quickly, and to help the managers optimize the resources for better productivity). Software mining has attracted much attention in both software engineering and data mining communities.
The Second International Workshop on Software Mining aims to bridge research in the data mining community and software engineering community by providing an open and interactive forum for researchers who are interested in software mining to discuss the methodologies and technical foundations of software mining, approaches and techniques for mining various types of software-related data, applications of data mining to facilitate specialized tasks in software engineering.
