CfP: RAISE 2015
4th International Workshop on
Realizing Artificial Intelligence Synergies in Software Engineering
Florence, Italy, May 17th, 2015 (In Conjunction with ICSE 2015)

This workshop brings together academics and industrial practitioners to
exchange and discuss the latest synergies arising from AI and SE techniques
and practices. In SE we have to solve a wide range of increasingly complex
questions that are dynamic, automated, adaptive, or large scale. In theory,
AI technologies can support the development of increasingly complex SE
systems (as in the case of recommendation systems), and help us to deal
with the many problems inherent in requirements engineering. Conversely, in
theory, SE can play a role in alleviating development costs and the
development effort associated with AI tools and applications such as
robotics where rigorous development and testing practices are of utmost
importance. In practice, this theoretical connection between SE and AI is
rarely achieved. All this begs the question:

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

To answer this question, RAISE'15 will explore not only the application of
AI techniques to SE problems but also the application of SE techniques to
AI problems. We seek papers that are position statements that review
current state of the art results as well as papers that look over the
horizon to discover future directions. Papers may either be regular papers
that will be published in the ICSE proceedings, or they may be published as
“abstract only” and be seen solely by workshop attendees, presented in
brainstorming sessions and discussed in breakout groups.

Topics of interest

Prospective participants should submit a paper 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
engineering, design, specification, traceability, program understanding,
model-driven development, testing and quality assurance, domain-specific
SE, adaptive systems, software evolution.

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,
SE infrastructure for reflective and self-sustaining systems.

4. Deployed Applications of AI or SE - papers that describe a deployed SE
application in the AI domain or an AI application in the SE domain
including but not limited to robotics software development and
recommendation systems in SE.

Important Dates

Paper Submission: 23 January 2015
Notification: 18 February 2015
CR paper: February 27, 2015
Workshop date: 17 May 2015


Submit papers (PDF) to https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=raise2015
Submissions should be at most 5 pages for position papers and 7 pages for
full papers. People who wish to publish 'abstract only' should still submit
a paper for review. All papers are intended to be archived 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 a 20 minute presentation session to stimulate discussion.
Submissions must not be published or under review elsewhere, and conform to
ACM Formatting Guidelines (
http://2015.icse-conferences.org/submission-guidelines). Submission length
should not exceed the above page limits and all submissions must be in

Special Issue
Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for publication in a
special issue of the Automated Software Engineering journal.
