SoHeal 2019
2nd International Workshop on Software Health
May 28th, 2019, Montreal, Canada


SoHeal aims to enable and promote collaboration between academia and industry, unifying the views on software health of researchers and practitioners. The workshop's goals are to: (1) raise awareness of practitioners' problems with software health; (2) familiarize practitioners with the progress made by academia; and (3) connect the two communities to further advance the body of knowledge and state of the practice on software health.

Factors impacting software health can vary depending on the viewpoint of the involved stakeholders: process factors, technical factors concerning the source code and related software artefacts, social factors concerning the communities of software contributors and users, and business factors concerning commercial aspects of the software product. Because of this variety, there is no clear definition of what constitutes software health, since it encompasses many different development and evolution attributes, including success, longevity, growth, resilience, survival, diversity, sustainability, etc.

Software health has gained the attention of both researchers and practitioners, as can be witnessed by recent initiatives such as the Linux Foundation’s CHAOSS project (https://chaoss.community) on community health analytics and the SecoHealth (https://secohealth.github.io) research project on software ecosystem health.

SoHeal 2019, the second edition of the workshop, will be co-located with the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) in Montreal, Canada.

We will have a very exciting keynote speech “Can software be healthy?” by Jesus Gonzalez-Barahona, who is co-founder of the Bitergia company (https://bitergia.com), a full professor at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (https://www.urjc.es) and a member of the Linux Foundation's CHAOSS community.

We will also have presentations regarding different aspects of software health: impact of third-party code on software health, security-related health, community-related health, managerial decisions and corporate involvement with regard to health, health as a reason to migrate and measurement of health.

You can find the complete program at https://soheal.github.io/program.html

You can register to the workshop at https://2019.icse-conferences.org/attending/registration by selecting Tuesday 1-day workshop. Keep in mind that you can benefit from lower registration fees until April 1st.
