DAPSE 2014: Workshop on Data Analysis Patterns in Software Engineering, co-located with ICSE 2014 – Hyderabad, India

Please consider submitting to the Second International Workshop on Data Analysis Patterns in Software Engineering, which will be co-located with the ICSE 2014 conference in Hyderabad, India. I am on the program committee of the workshop. Please submit your papers by January 24, 2014.

Data scientists in software engineering seek insight in data collected from software projects to improve software development. The demand for these data scientists is growing rapidly and there is already a shortage of them. Data science is a skilled art with a steep learning curve. To reduce the learning curve, this workshop will collect best practices in form of data analysis patterns that lead to meaningful conclusions and can be reused in the context of similar data.

In the workshop, we will compile a catalog of such patterns that will help novice and experienced data scientists to better communicate about data analysis. The workshop is intended for anyone interested in how to analyze software engineering data correctly and efficiently in a community accepted way.

The major themes of this workshop are: big data, business intelligence, replication of experiments, theory building, automated data analysis, and their application in software engineering.
