Workshop: Natural language processing and software engineering
Nov 13 2016

***Limited Travel Funding Available, thanks to NSF sponsorship***

Position papers, of no more than 4 pages, are invited. Deadline: Aug 1,

Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques and tools have become very
powerful and are applicable in many domains. In the context of Software
Engineering (SE), there are many promising opportunities for the application
of NLP to be used to improve SE theory and practice. Recently,
investigations have begun to unravel the extent to which large code corpora
that can be retrieved from GitHub, StackOverflow, etc., are amenable to
analysis using statistical NLP models and algorithms, so that the
revolutionary advances in speech recognitions, translation, comprehension,
etc. can be applied in SE.

This workshop will bring together an international group of researchers in
Statistical NLP, Programming Languages, Software Engineering and related
fields for an intensive period of discussion and presentation of results in
the area. We invite a range of researchers with both NLP and SE backgrounds
to come together, discuss their research, establish datasets, tasks, and
baselines, and generally help the field build momentum.

Thanks to funding from NSF, a limited amount of Travel support is available,
for academics. Priority, as per sponsor advice, will be given to US-based
NLP Researchers (those who normally publish in NLP venues), students, and
people from under-represented groups.
