CALL FOR PAPERS

SoftwareMining-2012: The First International Workshop on Software Mining

(Held in conjunction with KDD-2012 , Beijing, China, August 12-16, 2012)

http://lamda.nju.edu.cn/conf/softmine12/

(Submissions Due: 23:59 (PDT), May 22, 2012)
==============================================================================



Software systems have been playing important roles in business, scientific research, and our everyday lives. It is critical to improve both software productivity and quality, which are major challenges to software engineering researchers and practitioners. In recent years, software mining has emerged as a promising means to address these challenges. It has been successfully applied to discover knowledge from software artifacts (e.g., specifications, source code, documentations, execution logs, and bug reports) to improve software quality and development process (e.g., to obtain the insights for the causes leading to poor software quality, to help software engineers locate and identify problems quickly, and to help the managers optimize the resources for better productivity). Software mining has attracted much attention in both software engineering and data mining communities.

The first 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.

The best submission, according to the evaluations from the PC members, would be granted the "SoftwareMining-2012: Best Paper Award".


Topics
-------

The first International Workshop on Software Mining (SoftwareMining-2012) calls for research papers reporting original investigation results, real-world applications and system development experience in all aspects of software mining. The topics of the SoftwareMining-2012 submissions may roughly fall into three major aspects, including 1) Methodological and technical foundations of software mining, 2) Approaches and techniques for mining various types of software-related data, and 3) Applications of data mining to facilitate specialized tasks in software engineering. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

A. Software mining foundations
A1. Novel data mining methodologies / algorithms for software analytics
A2. Software mining models and techniques
A3. Robust and Highly Scalable Algorithms for Mining Large Scale Software System
A4. Understanding and visualizing software mining results
A5. Privacy preserving software mining

B. Mining specific software data
B1. Mining software specifications
B2. Mining source code
B3. Mining execution traces and logs
B4. Mining change patterns and trends
B5. Mining bug and crash reports
B6. Mining natural language artifacts in software data

C. Software mining in specialized tasks
C1. Mining for software defect identification and characterization
C2. Mining for software testing and debugging
C3. Mining for cost/effort estimation
C4. Mining for software development and reuse
C5. Mining for resource allocation
C6. Mining for process control



Paper Submission and Publication
---------------------------------

Each submission should be no more than 8 pages total in length, consisting of title, authors' names, postal and email addresses, an up to 200-words abstract, up to 5 keywords, and a body with all contents, figures, tables, and references. The format should be keep the same as the KDD main track format, which is the standard double-column ACM Proceedings Style. Additional information about formatting and style files is available online at: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. All manuscripts must be submitted electronically in a single PDF file using the conference management tool. Please make sure that any special fonts used are included in the submitted documents. Detailed instructions will be available soon on the SoftwareMining-2012 website (http://lamda.nju.edu.cn/conf/softmine12/).

For accepted papers, authors are required to prepare their final submissions for the workshop proceedings according to the reviewers' suggestions. All the accepted papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library (and EI-indexed as well).
