Call for Papers: RAISE 2016
5th International Workshop on Realizing Artificial Intelligence Synergies
in Software Engineering
Austin, TX, USA, May 17th, 2016 (In Conjunction with ICSE 2016)

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 ’16 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
position 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 position 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:

Abstract Submission: January 15, 2016
Paper Submission: January 22, 2016
Notification: February 19, 2016
CR paper: February 26, 2016
Workshop date: May 17, 2016


Submit papers (PDF) to https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=raise2016
Submissions should be 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. Accepted papers will be published as an ICSE 2016
Workshop Proceedings in the ACM and IEEE Digital Libraries. However, the
authors may choose an abstract only publication of their work. The official
publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date the proceedings
are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two
weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2016. The official publication date
affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.

If accepted, each paper will be presented in a 15-30-minute presentation
session to stimulate discussion. Submissions must not be published or under
review elsewhere, and conform to formatting using ACM Formatting Guidelines
(http://2016.icse.cs.txstate.edu/formatInstr). Submission length should not
exceed the above page limits and all submissions must be in English.
