Call for Papers

Recommendation systems for software engineering are tools that help developers and managers to better cope with the huge amount of information faced in today’s software projects. They provide developers with information to guide them in a number of activities (e.g., software navigation, debugging, refactoring), or to alert them of potential issues (e.g., conflicting changes, failure-inducing changes, duplicated functionality). Similarly, managers get only to see the information that is relevant to make a certain decision (e.g., bug distribution when allocating resources). Recommendation systems can draw from a wide variety of input data, and benefit from different types of analyses.

Although many recommendation systems have demonstrable usefulness and usability in software engineering, a number of questions remain to be discussed and investigated: What recommendations do developers and managers actually need? How can we evaluate recommendations? Are there fundamentally different kinds of recommenders? How can we integrate recommendations from different sources? How can we protect the privacy of developers? How can new recommendation systems leverage lessons from existing ones?

In this workshop, we will study advances in recommendation systems, with a special focus on evaluation, integration, and usability.
Specific areas of interests include, but are not limited to:

* Building trust in recommendations
* Infrastructure of recommendation systems
* Application of techniques from artificial intelligence and information retrieval
* Mining software artifacts for recommendations
* Recommendation systems for code reuse
* Recommendation systems for teams and managers
* Software navigation, debugging, refactoring, collaboration
* Evaluation of recommendation systems
* Benchmarks for recommendation systems
* Usability of recommendation systems
* Ethical issues such as privacy and behavioral shaping

Our goals are (1) to bring together a diverse segment of the community, in terms of career stage, geography, and background; (2) to solidify a body of knowledge about RSSEs; and (3) to identify ways in which RSSE research can be applied to, and benefit from, other existing research efforts.
RSSE 2010 builds on the success of RSSE 2008, held at FSE in Atlanta.

We intend to maintain the highly interactive style:

* lots of opportunity for discussion and debate;
* only a few talks on mature or thought-provoking work (including a keynote);
* a poster session for the remainder of submissions.


We invite two kinds of submissions:

* Long position papers (up to 5 pages) that describe ongoing work, preliminary results, or formal demonstrations of tools. They will be reviewed for topicality, novelty, and potential to spark useful discussions in the workshop—a subset of these will be selected for presentation during the workshop, the remaining accepted long position papers will be part of a poster session.

* Short position papers (2 pages) that describe new ideas, recent experiences, or preliminary tool support. They will be reviewed for topicality and potential to grow into substantive research contributions. Accepted short position papers will be invited to a poster/informal demonstration session.

Papers must follow the ACM conference format and must not exceed the page limits mentioned above, including figures and references. All submissions must be in English. Papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, using the submission site hosted by EasyChair.

All accepted papers will distributed to the workshop participants. Long and short position papers will be invited to be included in a workshop proceedings to be added to the ACM Digital Library.

It is the desire of the organizers that discussion of research at the workshop does not preclude publication of closely related material at conferences or journals. Authors of accepted papers will be able to choose whether to include their papers in the workshop proceedings.
