CALL FOR PAPERS
Goals of the Conference
The goals of this two-day conference are:
- To bring together researchers and practitioners from various backgrounds with interest in building predictive models with the aim of sharing experience and expertise.
- To steer discussion and debate on various aspects and issues related to building predictive software models.
- To broaden awareness of the publicly available repository of software engineering data sets, and to encourage researchers to use the datasets contained in the PROMISE repository for their experiments.
- To put together a list open research questions that are deemed essential by the researchers in the field
Topics of Interest include, but are not limited, to
- Effort prediction models
- Defect prediction models
- Applications of predictive models in software engineering
- Classification of predictive models
- Model-based requirements engineering
- Value-based software engineering
- Building predictive models using AI and statistical methods
- Strengths and limitations of predictive models
- Cost benefit analysis of predictive models
- Submissions are five to ten pages long (max).
- Papers must be original and previously unpublished.
- SUBMISSIONS WHICH INCLUDE EMPIRICAL RESULTS BASED ON PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE DATASETS WILL BE GIVEN THE HIGHEST PRIORITY.
At least one author of an accepted paper must register and attend the Conference. Also:
For papers based on previously unpublished data, if possible, the authors must place the data on a public domain web site such as the PROMISE SE repository. The conference steering committee recognizes that this may not be possible with proprietary data, or data that is not owned by the authors.
In such cases, the paper should clearly state why the data cannot be made available, provide the best possible description of the data, and indicate where readers might have access to it by special request.
Accepted papers and other materials for the Proceedings must be revised to conform to ACM SIG conference style guidelines (style files for Latex or Word are available for download). Accepted file formats must be PDF.
To submit paper and data:
Papers presented at PROMISE 2009 will be submitted to the ACM digital library and are eligible for submission to a special issue TBD.
