Tim Menzies and I guest edited a special issue of IEEE Software on software analytics. We received close to 30 submissions and accepted 8 papers. This was too many to place into one special issue so we divided the papers into two volumes:
- Volume 1: “Software Analytics: So What?” (July/August 2013)
IEEE CS Digital Library or Qmags.com
- Volume 2: “The Many Faces of Software Analytics”
(to appear in September/October 2013)
The accepted papers are shown below, along with their volume. Volume 1 also includes a roundtable discussion on what’s next in software analytics. Multimedia highlights include Paul Zikopoulos on Mining Big Data; Catherine Plaisant and Megan Monroe on Big Data Information Visualization, and Tim Menzies on Software Analytics: So What?
Thanks to everyone who contributed and reviewed for the special issue. Thanks to the production team of IEEE Software for their hard work in assembling and editing all these articles. Congratulations to all authors on their excellent work.
Please also mark your calendars for the Software Experts Summit 2013, presented by IEEE Software, with a focus on Smart Data Science: Harnessing Data for Intelligent Decision Making. Scheduled for 17 July at the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, Washington, speakers include James Whittaker of Microsoft, Paul Zikopoulos of IBM, Wolfram Schulte of Microsoft Research, Ayse Bener of Ryerson University, and Forrest Shull of the Fraunhofer Center for Experimental Software Engineering.
