CFP- SoViVa'17 @ ESEC/FSE

by Nour Assy, March 14, 2017

The mission of this workshop is to advance and provide a scientific basis for in-vivo software analytics, and to bring together researchers interested in data analytics for big software. The workshop seeks contributions from researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of generating, collecting, and analysing event data produced by running systems.

1st Workshop on Big Software In-Vivo Analytics SoViVa’17 @ ESEC/FSE (http://www.3tu-bsr.nl/doku.php?id=bsr-ws2017:start )

September 04-05, 2017, Paderborn, Germany

Submission deadline: May 12, 2017 

BACKGROUND

Millions of lines of code – written in different languages by different people at different times, and operating on a variety of platforms – drive the systems performing key processes in our society. The resulting software needs to evolve and can no longer be controlled a priori as is illustrated by a range of software problems. 

The aim of this workshop is to focus on the in vivo analysis of large software systems. By monitoring running systems and logging the stream of events, it becomes possible to visualize behavior, check system correctness, detect security and privacy threats, diagnose and predict problems, and recommend corrective actions.

OBJECTIVES

The mission of this workshop is to advance and provide a scientific basis for in-vivo software analytics, and to bring together researchers interested in data analytics for big software. The workshop seeks contributions from researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of generating, collecting, and analysing event data produced by running systems. 

TOPICS

  • Run-time monitoring and verification of big software
  • Software Data stream analytics
  • Process mining for software systems
  • Scalable and interactive visualization techniques of run-time software event data
  • Data analytics for detecting and predicting software defects
  • Run-time analytics for improving and automating software testing and design
  • Privacy-enhanced approaches and techniques for software monitoring and run-time event data analysis
  • Security and privacy issues in software analytics
  • Hybrid approaches combining design-time and run-time analytics for big software

PAPER SUBMISSION

Authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished research papers (full papers of 10 pages including references and appendices, and short or position papers of 5 pages) following ESEC guidelines (http://esec-fse17.uni-paderborn.de/call_policies.php).
