-- Fourth International Workshop on Software Mining (SoftMine)            Date: Nov 10, 2015

CFPs for the six workshops are provided below.

ACTION 15: Actionable Analytics for SE
NOV 9, 2015

Tim Menzies: NcState, USA
Ye Yang : Stevens Institute, USA

Submission: July 3, 2015

A repeated complaint in software analytics is that industrial practitioners find it hard to apply the results generated from data science. This is a pressing issue: actionable analytics are required to enable time-sensitive, environmental-aware decision making. How can we bridge the gap between the predictions we can generate to actions that users can apply? The workshop goal is to:

- Exchange research work on exploring new ideas, metrics, and algorithms in software prediction;
- Discuss emergent challenges in software prediction;
- Propose and ideally converge on a research road  map for the next 5-10 year.

Java Pathfinder Workshop 2015
Nov 9, 2015

Oksana Tkachuk, NASA Ames, Mountain View, CA
Eric G. Mercer, Brigham Young University, Provo, UT

Submission: July 27, 2015

The goal of the workshop is to highlight research and tools for Java/Android program verification and analysis. Although there is a particular emphasis on the Java Pathfinder (JPF) tool, and on projects that use JPF to support basic research, tool development, or verification case studies, the workshop also welcomes contributions related to general program analysis of Java/Android programs. In particular, submissions related to Android are especially encouraged this year. The hope is to use the workshop to grow the community of researchers investigating Java, Android, and JPF in an effort to foster collaboration and define future needs for Java program analysis.

Sixth International Workshop on Testing Techniques for Event BasED Software (TESTBEDS)
Nov 10, 2015

Ana C. R. Paiva, University of Porto, Portugal
Anna Rita Fasolino, University of Naples Federico II, Italy

Submission: July 3, 2015

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from both Academia and Industry with the aim of sharing ideas and presenting research on the state of the art in automated testing techniques for event based software/systems (EBS). Examples of EBS include graphical user interfaces (GUIs), web applications, mobile applications, network protocols, embedded software, web services and device drivers.

One of the key properties of EBS is the simplified, implicit interaction between components that is based on the exchange of events. The interaction is limited to one component publishing an event that can be received by one or more other components, with no inherent coordination, continuation or context preservation. Due to the loose coupling and the implicit interaction between its components, event-based systems may be highly scalable and easy to evolve, but at the same time they can be more difficult to test and debug.

In this workshop we welcome submissions regarding every aspect of EBS testing, including techniques for test case generation and execution, oracle definition, testing tools and environments, regression testing, security testing, etc.

First International Workshop on DevOps
Nov 10, 2015

Steve Versteeg, Co-Chair, CA Technologies
Jean-Guy Schneider, Co-Chair, Swinburne University of Technology
Chintan Amrit, University of Twente
Sam Whillance, Webmaster

Submission: July 3, 2015

DevOps bridges the divide between development and operations. It is a new driver for business agility and IT alignment. Business is demanding ever-shortening release cycles, yet the complexity of production deployment ever increases. DevOps aims to address these conflicting constraints, thereby enabling Continuous Delivery. DevOps includes tools for automating the release cycle, tools for bringing the production environment to development and tighter coordination between developers, operations staff and the business.

The First International Workshop on DevOps provides a dedicated forum for researchers and practitioners to share ideas, advice, and solutions to real DevOps problems. To that end, this workshop seeks position statements that highlight industrial challenges, breakthroughs, case studies, as well as corresponding research challenges. In particular, we seek position statements with high take-away value to help practitioners improve their own DevOps processes, techniques, and results. Also valuable are position statements that help academics identify important new areas of research.

Software Support for Collaborative and Global Software Engineering
Nov 10, 2015

David Redmiles, University of California, Irvine
Leonardo Gresta Paulino Murta, Computing Institute of Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF), Brazil
Sabrina Marczak, Computer Science School at PUCRS University, Brazil
John Penix, Google
Andrew Begel Microsoft Research

Submission: July 3, 2015

Automated software engineering, and software engineering in general, has a rich history around the issues of collaboration. One might argue that many of the tools, models, and studies that have been reported in the ASE conference series have in one way or another had to do with collaboration. This workshop seeks specifically to highlight collaboration as a specific lens or framework for assessing the state of the art in automated support for collaborative and global software engineering. In taking this focus, issues about integrative solutions, open problems, and a research agenda will emerge.

Fourth International Workshop on Software Mining (SoftMine)
Nov 10, 2015

Ming Li, Nanjing University
Xiaoying Wang, University of Texas at San Antonio
Xin Xia, Zhejiang University

Submission: July 3, 2015

The Fourth International Workshop on Software Mining aims to bridge research in the data mining community and software engineering community by providing an open and interactive forum for researchers who are interested in software mining to discuss the methodologies and technical foundations of software mining, approaches and techniques for mining various types of software-related data, applications of data mining to facilitate specialized tasks in software engineering. The participants of diverse background in either data mining or software engineering can benefit from this workshop by sharing their expertise, exchanging ideas and discussing new research results.

Authors who are interested in software mining are invited to submit their manuscripts related to all aspects of software mining including software mining foundations, mining specific software data, software mining in specialized tasks, etc.

Workshop Co-chairs

Anita Sarma
University of Nebraska, Lincoln

David Lo
Singapore Management University
