IWESEP 2012: International Workshop on Empirical Software Engineering in Practice

Please consider submitting to the 4th International Workshop on Empirical Software Engineering in Practice (IWESEP 2012) in Osaka, Japan. I am on the program committee. Please submit your papers by June 22, 2012 (abstracts: June 8). The workshop will be held October 26-27, 2012.

The objective of the 4th 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. We solicit full research papers (max 6 pages) and short papers (max 2 pages).
