PROMISE conference is an annual forum for researchers and practitioners to
present, discuss and exchange ideas, results, expertise and experiences in
construction and/or application of prediction models in software
engineering. Such models could be targeted at: planning, design,
implementation, testing, maintenance, quality assurance, evaluation, process
improvement, management, decision making, and risk assessment in software
and systems development. 


PROMISE is distinguished from similar forums with its public data repository
and focus on methodological details, providing a unique interdisciplinary
venue for software engineering and machine learning communities, and seeking
for verifiable and repeatable prediction models that are useful in practice.



The special theme of PROMISE’13 is predictions across projects, contexts and
organizations, where the predictions employ approaches (e.g. transfer
learning, instance selection, data filtering) with an impact that is useful
in practice, in order to solve the problem of learning under concept drift
(across time and space). 



* (Application oriented): Predicting for cost, effort, quality, defects,
business value; quantification and prediction of other intermediate or final
properties of interest in software development regarding people, process or
product aspects; using predictive models in policy and decision making;
using predictive models in different settings, e.g. lean/agile, waterfall,
distributed, community-based software development.


* (Theory oriented): Interdisciplinary and novel approaches to predictive
modeling that contribute to the theoretical body of knowledge in software
engineering; verifying/refuting/challenging previous theory and results; the
effectiveness of human experts vs. automated models in predictions.


* (Data and model oriented): Data quality, sharing, and privacy; ethical
issues related to data collection; metrics; contributions to the repository;
model construction, evaluation, sharing and reusability; tools and
frameworks to support researchers and practitioners to collect data and
construct models to share/repeat experiments and results. 



We invite all kinds of empirical studies on the topics of interest (e.g.
case studies, meta-analysis, replications, experiments, simulations, surveys
etc.), as well as industrial experience reports detailing the application of
prediction technologies and their effectiveness in industrial settings. Both
positive and negative results are welcome, though negative results should
still be based on rigorous research and provide details on lessons learned.


Following the tradition, PROMISE'13 will give the highest priority to
empirical studies based on publicly available datasets. It is therefore
encouraged, but it is not mandatory, that conference attendees contribute
the data used in their analysis to the on-line PROMISE data repository. 


We solicit both full and short papers. Short papers are intended to
disseminate new ideas, on-going work and preliminary results for early
feedback, and do not necessarily require complete results as in full papers.
The deadline for short papers is the same as full papers.



* Submissions must be original work, not published or under review

* Submissions must conform to the ACM SIG proceedings templates from

* Submissions must not exceed 10 (4) pages for full (short) papers including

* Papers should be submitted via Easychair (please choose either “full” or
“short” papers): http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=promise2013.

* Accepted papers will be published in the ACM digital library. 



The venue for the special issue is TBA. Previous PROMISE special issues have
appeared in IEEE Software, Empirical Software Engineering Journal,
Information and Software Technology Journal, and Automated Software
Engineering Journal.
