We invite you to attend the 25th International Conference on Software
Analysis, Evolution and Reengineering (SANER), the premier research
conference on the theory and practice of recovering information from
existing software and systems. The event explores methods to extract the
many kinds of information that can be recovered from software, software
engineering documents, and systems artifacts, and examines innovative ways
of using this information in system renewal and program understanding. This
25th edition will be held at the University of Molise in Campobasso, March
20-23, 2018.

You can register to the conference and its co-located events at:
