DISE: Track on Data-drIven Software Engineering

Call for Papers by 14 June (AoE)

Being more than 50 years of tremendous success of research, education and practices in software engineering, SIMBig is pleased to present the DISE (Data-drIven Software Engineering) track for its second edition. Software engineering is the application of engineering techniques and methods to the software development. It gains more and more importance in research, high-reputed international conference series such as ICSE, ASE and ESEM offer dedicated venues for discussing research advancements in software engineering. On the other hand, thanks to the era of data software engineering has gained ground in many fields introducing new technologies to support most of human actions from housework until military actions. The DISE track aims to provide an open forum for researchers, practitioners and educators in Peru and Latin America i) to discuss their current work on data-driven software engineering practices ii) to share experiences on the usage of data science methods and tools in solving problems of software engineering and iii) to identify the main challenges on the topic of knowledge transfer between data science and software engineering communities. More concretely we aim at creating an occasion for discussing data-driven software engineering via exploring:

  • New scenarios, methods and techniques for data-driven software engineering
  • New and emerging ideas about techniques for data-driven software engineering
  • Experiences on trying to solve problems of software engineering exploiting users and contextual data
  • Synergies and interactions among cross-system data-driven software engineering techniques and methods

Scope and Topics

We are looking for contributions that investigate models, design principles, methods and techniques for software engineering using a data-driven approach. The topics include but are not limited to:

  • Data-driven search based software engineering.
  • Model-driven software engineering for exploiting users and contextual data.
  • Data-driven software evolution and maintenance.
  • Data-driven software adaptation.
  • Data-driven self-* (self-management, self-adaptation, self-protection, etc.) systems.
  • Data-driven security and privacy .
  • Data-driven software testing.
  • Data-driven requirement engineering .
  • Affective software engineering.
  • Data-driven educational software engineering.
  • Crowdsourcing for Software Engineering .
  • Ethical issues on data collection and exploitation.
  • Platforms and Infrastructure for data-driven software engineering.
  • Data-driven design pattern for software engineering.
  • Non-functional aspects of Big Data processing.
