ACTION15 2015 : Actionable Analytics for SE
Call For Papers
ACTION15: Actionable Analytics for SE
An ASE'15 workshop
Lincoln, Nebraska, USA
* Submission: July 3
* Notification: July 24
* Camera ready: Aug 31
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- ensitive, environmental-aware decision
making. How can we bridge the gap between the
predictions we can generate to actions that users
The workshop goal is to:
* Exchange research work on exploring new ideas,
metrics, and algorithms in software prediction;
* Discuss emergent challenges in software
* Propose and ideally converge on a research road
map for the next 5-10 year.
Accordingly, we ask for papers on related topics
that include (but are not limited to) the following:
* Experiences and lessons learned on the strengths
and limitations of current software predictive
models; (i.e. how reliable are existing methods?)
* Challenges and barriers to adopt current models
and methodologies in the context of new software
technologies, such as crowdsourcing, architecture
migration, cloud service composition, etc.
* Roles of automation in improving predictive power
in software estimation.
* New metrics and models to better measure, search
and recommend the underlying causal relationships
of cost, schedule, and quality, etc.
* Trends and needs of emergent software planning
practices and impact on software estimation
* Research agenda for maturing and enriching software
planning decision models.
All accepted papers will appear in the IEEE Digital Library.
