Call For Papers

Call for Papers: the 7th IEEE International Workshop on Program Debugging (IWPD2016)

The goal of this workshop is to highlight the most pressing challenges and innovative solutions associated with program debugging,
especially with respect to software business, methodologies, techniques, environments, and human factors.
Experience reports from industry or empirical studies on these aspects are also welcome.
IWPD aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in order to discuss the latest advancements and
determine further challenges that must be overcome in the area of program debugging.

The workshop welcomes submissions that cover, but are not limited to, the following topics:
Strategies for effective and efficient program debugging
Challenges and emerging techniques in program debugging for large scale real-life applications and domain-specific applications
Debugging for multi-(core, process, or threaded) programs
Empirical studies and open source-based benchmarking infrastructure
Experience reports and industrial best practices
Impacts of software business, human factors, programming languages, and tool environments on program debugging
Integrating debugging with other software development and maintenance activities
Social aspects of program debugging
Software risk analysis and cost estimation for fault localization, bug fixing, and their social interactions
Transitioning from research to practice
Pedagogical models for effectively teaching program debugging

Important Date:
July 29, 2016 (extended to Aug.8, 2016): Submission deadline
August 19, 2016: Notification to authors
August 28, 2016: Camera-ready copies
October 23, 2016: Workshop

Submit original papers (not published or submitted elsewhere) with a maximum of 8 pages.
Include the title of the paper, the name and affiliation of each author, a 150-word abstract,
and up to 6 keywords. Both research papers and industry experience reports are welcome.
All submissions must be written in English, follow the IEEE conference proceedings format,
and be uploaded through the workshop submission site at:
Each submission will be reviewed by three PC members.
Paper selection is based on originality, technical contribution, presentation, and relevance to IWPD.

At least one author of each accepted paper (including panelists’ position statements) must register with the full fee
and present at the workshop in order for the paper to be included in the ISSRE2016 Supplemental Proceedings.
Papers will also be submitted to the IEEE Xplore database and indexed by
all the abstracting and indexing partners (such as the EI Compendex).

IWPD2016 will be co-located with 27th International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2016) in Ottawa on October 23, 2016.
Ottawa, the capital of Canada, is located in the province of Ontario and is the fourth largest city of Canada.
Ottawa is a place to discover Canada’s proud heritage through its impressive national sites and
famous landmarks that include the 7.8 kilometer long Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site); which in winter,
becomes the world's largest naturally frozen skating rink. It is a city steeped in culture,
with world-class museums and galleries displaying stunning national collections and special exhibitions from Canada and around the world.
