Call for Papers: IEEE VISSOFT 2013

Location: Eindhoven, NL
Date: September 27-28, 2013

                       *** Paper submission deadline: May 6, 2013 ***

The first IEEE Working Conference on Software Visualization (VISSOFT
2013) follows six editions of
the IEEE International Workshop on Visualizing Software for
Understanding and Analysis (VISSOFT) and
five editions of the ACM Symposium on Software Visualization (SOFTVIS).
In 2013, these two events
will be united in a single top-tier conference on software visualization
which is co-located with ICSM 2013.

Software Visualization is a broad research area encompassing techniques
that assist in a range of
software engineering activities, such as, specification, design,
programming, testing, maintenance,
reverse engineering and reengineering. Covered methods contain the
development and evaluation of
approaches for visually analyzing software and software systems,
including their structure,
execution behavior, and evolution.

In this conference, we focus on visualization techniques that target
aspects of software maintenance and
evolution, program comprehension, reverse engineering, and
reengineering, i.e., how visualization
helps programmers to understand, analyze, and evolve software. We aim to
gather tool developers,
users and researchers from software engineering, information
visualization, and human-computer
interaction to discuss theoretical foundations, algorithms, techniques,
tools, and applications
related to software visualization. We seek theoretical, as well as
practical papers on applications,
techniques, tools, case studies, and empirical studies. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

* Program visualization
* Visual software analytics
* Network visualizations in software engineering
* Visualization of software documentations
* Visualization of parallel programs
* Visualization-based software in computer science and software
engineering education
* Visualization of workflow and business processes
* Integration of software visualization tools and development environments
* Visualization of web services
* Visualization of software evolution
* Visualization of database schemes
* Protocol and log visualization (security, trust)
* Graph algorithms for software visualization
* Visual debugging
* Software visualization on the internet
* Empirical evaluation of software visualization
* Visualization to support program comprehension

Papers are solicited that present original, unpublished research results
and will be rigorously reviewed
by an international program committee. In addition to full papers,
VISSOFT features a New Ideas or
Emerging Results (NIER) track and a tool demo track related to the same
list of topics suggested above.
All accepted submissions will appear in the conference proceedings and
the IEEE Digital Library.
More information on how to submit a paper including paper formatting as
well as more information on
the NIER and tool demo tracks can be found here:
