Final Call for Papers with extended submission deadline: 2nd Workshop on Natural Language Processing Advancements for Software Engineering (NLPaSE 2021) @ 28th APSEC 2021

2nd Edition of the Workshop on Natural Language Processing Advancements for Software Engineering (NLPaSE) co-located with the 28th Asia Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC) 2021 calls for submission of position papers, experience reports, and research papers. We are looking for contributions that enhance the knowledge towards NLP and their applications in Software Engineering and contribute to the workshop goals. We also encourage contributions that highlight challenges faced by the industry professionals while applying NLP techniques for generating/translating/processing the software artefacts. Submissions are invited in the following topics of interest include w.r.to the application of NLP techniques and their advancements, but are not limited to:

Requirements analysis, elicitation, and tracing.
Automation and tool support.
Generating Software Artefacts by applying NLP techniques (e.g., domain models, entities, test information, test cases, etc.)
Bug report mining and analysis.
Test automation.
Functional and non-functional requirements categorization.
Information extraction (abstraction identification, feature extraction).
Test information and test case generation.
Text mining.
Systematic Reviews (SLR, SMS).
Natural Language is a Programming Language.
Generation of test oracles using NLP.
Generating code from natural-language specifications.
Software reuse.
Software evolution.  

Submission Categories:
NLPaSE is looking for three kinds of contributions:


*Research Papers, including case studies, report on original research results on the use of NLP in the Software Engineering domain.
*Experience Reports describing experiences in the use of NLP, challenges, and lessons learned in the Software Engineering domain.
*Position Papers sharing the author’s insights or proposing an original idea or an opinion on NLP Advancements for Software Engineering.

Submitted papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Submissions will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee.
