The EAQSE workshop (announcement below) is about empirical answers to
important questions of software engineering. Since the focus is on problems
that could benefit from answers, complete or (more likely) partial, coming
from empirical research, we have started a contribution page to list such





It is intended as a collection of open issues in software engineering, in
need of such empirical help.


Whether or not you plan to submit a contribution to the workshop, if you are
interested in such problems please list them on that page. Since it is set
up as a blog page, it suffices to use the Reply button.


Thanks in advance for helping to focus this event on the problems that
really matter to practicing software engineers.

Subject: Empirical Answers to Software Engineering Questions --
Villebrumier, 19-21 November -- Call for Papers



First international workshop on

Empirical Answers to Questions of Software Engineering 


Villebrumier LASER center, 19-21 November 2018




Empirical methods have transformed software engineering. Over the past two
decades, it has become essential to back assertions on methodology,
languages and tools by objective analysis of their effect. Sometimes,
however, the temptation has been to perform empirical studies on problems
that can be studied, because they make it easy to set up an empirical study,
rather than  problems that should be studied, because they are important for
the practice of software development.


(For more background see two blog posts starting at http://bit.ly/2F5FKWK.) 


The EAQSE workshop focuses precisely on this goal: empirical studies whose
results teach us lessons about what helps, or hinders, the quality of both
software processes and software products.


Papers should identify clearly the software engineering questions being
addressed, their practical relevance, the empirical study or studies that
have been performed, and their contribution to answering the questions. 


The three-day workshop will include invited talks and presentations of the
accepted papers, and will reserve ample time for discussions. The papers
will be published as post-proceedings, as a volume of the Springer Lecture
Notes in Computer Science.


Submissions  will be reviewed by the international program committee. They
should be in LNCS format. To kinds of submission are possible: full paper
and can take the form of either a full paper (up to 15 LNCS pages) or an
extended abstract (2 to 5 pages).


Submission page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eaqse18.


Important dates


Deadline for submissions (full paper or extended abstract): 15 September
2018 (firm).


Acceptance notice: 5 October 2018.


EAQSE workshop: 19-21 November 2018.
