Call For Papers

Call for Papers: the 8th International Workshop on Program Debugging (IWPD 2017)

October 23, 2017, Toulouse, France
http://paris.utdallas.edu/iwpd17/

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 to discuss the latest advancements and determine further challenges that must be overcome in the area of program debugging.


IMPORTANT DATES

* July 28, 2017 Submission deadline (extended)
* August 13, 2017 Notification to authors
* August 28, 2017 Camera-ready copies
* October 23, 2017 IWPD Workshop


TOPICS OF INTEREST

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 



SUBMISSIONS

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 https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwpd2017. Each submission will be reviewed by three PC members. Paper selection is based on originality, technical contribution, presentation, and relevance to IWPD.


PANELIST SOLICITATION

There will be a panel discussion on “Advancing Automatic Debugging” at the workshop. Qualified panelists are solicited to report and discuss their ideas of building fundamental theories for automatic debugging, and boosting its practicality in the real world. They will also share their opinions on the future research directions in this area. Prospective panelists should contact the Program Chairs.


PROCEEDINGS

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 ISSRE 2017 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).
