Special Session @ 46th EUROMICRO SEAA Conference in Portorož / Slovenia

Software Analytics: Mining Software Open Datasets and Repositories (STREAM)

August 26-28, 2020

Important Dates:

  • Abstract submission to tracks and sessions: March 16, 2020 (AoE)
  • Paper submission to tracks and sessions: April 13, 2020 (AoE) (Extended)
  • Notification of accepted papers: May 18, 2020 (AoE)
  • Camera-ready paper due: June 21, 2020 (AoE)

Motivation: In recent years, software engineering has benefitted from collecting, processing, and visualiz-ing large volumes of data that have been produced along the software development process, the use of software applications per se, and from the people that are involved in the develop-ment and operation of software.

By using data stemming from systems that support software development and maintenance (such as JIRA, GitHub, the Maven Repository etc.) one can track the progress of software development, as well as the quality of software processes and products. Lessons learnt from exploiting the aforementioned datasources through qualitative or quantitative studies are con-sidered extremely useful for product and process improvement. So far, advances in software engineering provide us with progressively improved software development and the ability to continuously deploy software products. However, these new software products, systems, or services create new challenges to their specification, development, quality assurance, and se-curity, where innovative solutions are required. To be able to take the next step in further ad-vancing modern software development, we need to apply research methods and tools for mining, analyzing, representing, and properly using large quantities of software data.

The mission of this session is to provide a forum, in which practitioners and researchers can exchange experiences and ideas around software analytics, mining software repositories, software data visualization, and big data systems in software engineering. The special session, will consider papers related (but not limited) to the following topics:

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Methods, tools, and applications of software analytics for software process and product improvement
  • Data science in software engineering
  • Methods, tools, and applications of mining software repositories for software process and product improvement
  • Visualization methods for representing software data that can support software engineer-ing processes including program comprehension, software testing, performance analysis etc.
  • Methods and tools that use software data for the specification, design, development, quality assurance, deployment, and operation of software systems and products
  • Human and social aspects on developing modern software development approaches, software systems and products that use developers’ feedback
  • Security and privacy regarding techniques that use software data and developers’ feed-back in software engineering
  • Empirical studies that rely on software analytics, data science, software data visualization, and mining software repositories
  • Industrial experience with software analytics and data science in software engineering
  • Repository mining and management for modelling artefacts
  • Model searching, indexing, retrieval, storage

The conference proceedings in the last years have been published by the IEEE Computer Society. The format is the IEEE two-column proceedings format (8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers).

Submission Guidelines: SEAA 2020 encourages the submission of full research papers (maximum 8 pages), short papers and tool demo papers (maximum 4 pages), and posters. Papers follow a single-blinded reviewing process and must contain original unpublished work, describe significant novel contributions, and provide evidence on the validation of results. In particular, reports on industrial applications are welcome.

Submissions URL: (choose Software Analytics: Mining Software Open Datasets and Repositories track when submitting)

Conference Publishing Services (CPS) will publish accepted papers in the conference proceedings and the proceedings will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital library and indexing services.

Please note that it is planned to select best papers among all tracks of SEAA and present them with an award. A selection of best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for tentative publication in a requested Special Issue of a Journal (under negotiation).
