The 2015 Workshop on Software Engineering

Phuket, Thailand

November 12-14, 2015

Held in Conjunction with KICSS 2015

THAISE workshop provides a forum for people to discuss current topics in software engineering research and practices. This workshop will provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss innovative scientific and engineering ideas at a state before they have matured to warrant journal publication. The workshop also serves as incubators for scientific ideas or new scientific communities that form and share a particular research agenda.

The workshop will cover a broad range of research topics in software engineering. They include, but are not limited to:
      Agile software development
      Automatic and (self-) adaptive systems
      Cloud computing
      Component-based software engineering
      Configuration management and deployment
      Cooperative, distributed, and collaborative software engineering
      Debugging, fault localization, and repair
      Dependability, safety, and reliability
      Education of software engineering
      Embedded software
      Empirical software engineering
      End-user software engineering
      Formal methods
      Green and sustainable technologies
      Human factors and social aspects of software engineering
      Human-computer interaction
      Middleware, frameworks, and APIs
      Mining software engineering repositories
      Mobile applications
      Model-driven engineering
      Open source software engineering
      Parallel, distributed, and concurrent systems
      Program analysis
      Program comprehension
      Programming languages
      Requirement engineering
      Reverse engineering
      Security, privacy and trust
      Software architecture
      Software data mining
      Software economics and metrics
      Software eco-system
      Software evolution and maintenance
      Software process
      Software product lines
      Software testing
      Software visualization
      Specification and modeling languages
      Validation and verification
We also invite all kinds of empirical studies on the topics of interest (e.g. case studies, meta-analysis, replications, experiments, surveys etc.), as well as industrial experience reports detailing the application of software engineering in industrial settings. Both positive and negative results are welcome, though negative results should still be based on rigorous research and provide details on lessons learned.
