2009-08-22: CFP: Workshop on Visual Analytics in Software Engineering
Workshop on Visual Analytics in Software Engineering (VASE 2009)
November 16, 2009 (Auckland, New Zealand)
In conjunction with the ACM/IEEE Automated Software Engineering (ASE 2009)
Submission September 14, 2009 Notification September 30, 2009 Final version End of October, 2009 Workshop November 16, 2009
The fields of information visualization and visual analytics have provided a rich source of techniques and tools for exploring complex information spaces. Automated software engineering creates or involves the handling of complex information spaces, and this workshop will look at the role that visualization and visual analytics has to play in supporting automated software engineering.
As an example of this, researchers are currently developing novel methods, algorithms, and techniques to visualize multiple types and sets of artifacts. This goes beyond just looking at source code, but also visualizing and analyzing other documents, meta-data, or repository data for diverse, complex, and large-scale software applications.
There are a number of challenges facing both information visualization and visual analytics, and this workshop will provide the opportunity for researchers to come together and discuss the impact of these challenges on specifically supporting aspects of automated software engineering. Stemming from this, the workshop will provide the opportunity to propose and discuss a roadmap for future solutions to these challenges, and areas for collaboration.
VASE will be a workshop bringing together researchers in the fields of software visualization, information visualization and visual analytics. We invite novel contributions on any topics in advanced information visualization techniques and visual analytics relating to (and any other related area):
- Empirical software engineering
- Program understanding
- Software architecture and design
- Testing, verification, and validation
- Component-based systems
- Ontologies and methodologies
- Human-computer interaction
- Software metrics
Participants are invited to submit a position paper describing their on going work. We will accept papers (up to 6 pages) that describe work-in-progress or recently completed work based on the themes and goals of the workshop or related topics, report on experiences gained, question accepted wisdom, raise challenging open problems, or propose speculative new approaches.
Submissions and final papers should be formatted using the ACM SIG Proceedings Template format. Templates for Word and LaTeX are available at http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates.
Accepted submissions will be made available through this website and published as a technical report. Accepted papers may be published at future conferences, although we will not accept papers already accepted (or under review) at other conferences.
Workshop participants are encouraged to have read the position papers before attending the workshop. Participants are also asked to prepare a presentation to support their position paper.
