About the Workshop

This workshop brings together researchers and industrial practitioners to
exchange and discuss the latest innovative synergistic AI and SE techniques
and practices. Software engineering is now expected to solve a plethora of
increasingly complex questions that are dynamic, automated, adaptive, or
must execute on a very large scale. In theory, other disciplines could
better support SE. For example, AI technologies can support the development
of increasingly complex SE systems as in the case of recommendation
systems. Conversely, in theory, SE might also play a role in alleviating
development costs and the development effort associated with AI tools and
applications such as robotics where proper development and testing
practices are of utmost importance. In practice, this theoretical
connection between SE and AI is rarely achieved. We believe that SE has
much to offer AI about systems engineering and scalability of
methodologies. Yet AI research rarely uses this work. All this begs the

Are SE and AI researchers ignoring important insights from AI and SE?

To answer this question, RAISE ’14 will be a crossover workshop where the
state of the art in both fields is documented and extended. This workshop
will explore not only the application of AI techniques to software
engineering problems but also the application of software engineering
techniques to AI problems.
We seek papers that are position statements that review current state of
the art results as well as papers that will look over the horizon for
discover future directions. Papers may either be regular research papers
that will be published in the ICSE proceedings, or they may be “abstract
only” and they would only be seen by workshop attendees, presented in
brainstorming sessions and discussed in breakout groups.

Topics of Interest

Prospective participants should submit either a state of the art position
statement describing late-breaking research results or a research vision
statement on one or more of the following perspectives.

1. Improving SE through AI – including but not limited to knowledge
acquisition, knowledge representation, reasoning, agents, machine learning,
machine-human interaction, planning and search, natural language
understanding, problem solving and decision-making, understanding and
automation of human cognitive tasks, AI programming languages, reasoning
about uncertainty, new logics, statistical reasoning, software analytics,

2. Applying AI to SE activities – including but not limited to
requirements, design, specification, traceability, program understanding,
model-driven development, testing and quality assurance, domain-specific
software engineering, adaptive systems, software evolution, etc.

3. SE for AI – including but not limited to AI programming languages,
program derivation techniques in AI domains, platforms and programmability,
software architectures, rapid prototyping and scripting for AI techniques,
software engineering infrastructure for reflective and self-sustaining
systems, etc.

4. Deployed Applications of AI or SE – papers that describe a deployed SE
application in AI domain or an AI application in SE domain including nut
not limited to robotics software development and recommendation systems in
SE, etc.


Submit papers (PDF) to
should be 5 to 7 pages long and can either be position
statements that review state of the art results or a vision statement
looking over the horizon. All papers are intended to be archival for
publication in the ICSE Companion proceedings, however the authors may
chose an abstract only publication of their work. If accepted, each paper
will be presented in 15-20 minutes presentation sessions to stimulate
discussion. Submissions must not be published or under review elsewhere,
and conform to formatting using ACM Formatting Guidelines (
http://2014.icse-conferences.org/format). Submission length should not
exceed the above page limits and all submissions must be in English.

Journal Special Issue

Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for publication in a
special issue of Software Quality Journal.
