Call For Papers

3rd International Workshop on Bots in Software Engineering (BotSE)
Going virtual June 4th, 2021. In conjunction with ICSE 2021

Bots (short for software robots) are software applications that perform often repetitive or simple tasks. In particular, social and chat bots interacting with humans are a recent re- search topic. Similarly, bots can be used to automate many tasks that are performed by software practitioners and teams in their day-to-day work. Recent work argues that bots can save developers' time and significantly increase productivity. Therefore, the goal of this one-day workshop is to bring together software engineering researchers and practitioners to discuss the opportunities and challenges of bots in software engineering.

We solicit 4-page research, experience reports, or position papers. Research papers are expected to describe new research results and make contributions to the body of knowledge of the area. Experience reports are expected to describe experiences with the development, deployment, and maintenance (amongst other things) of bot-based systems in the software engineering domain. Position papers are expected to discuss controversial issues in the field, or describe interesting or thought provoking ideas that are not yet fully developed. Papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to give a talk in the event.

Papers may address issues along the general themes, including but not limited, to the following topics:

- Using bots to derive software requirements and documentation
- Using bots in the context of the reliability and quality of software systems
- Using bots to support software system release and deployment
- Using bots to enhance and support testing & maintenance of software systems
- Supporting and answering developer questions using bots
- Using bots to ensure the safety, security, privacy and trustworthiness of software systems
- Effective processes for the development of bot-based software
- Privacy and ethics issues related to the use of bots in software systems
- Issues in the interaction of bots and developers and other stakeholders
- Experiences using bot frameworks in software systems
