CISE 2013

3rd International Workshop on Computational Intelligence in Software Engineering

Summary

The CISE workshop focuses on theoretical and applied research related to the utilization of Computational Intelligence techniques in Software Engineering, targeting the provision of alternative, interdisciplinary approaches for tackling problems found in Software Engineering.

The aim of the workshop is to host research papers that present practical solutions to emerging Software Engineering issues by applying Computational Intelligence methods. The workshop is associated with research and development advances in many fields of Software Engineering and particularly the study, analysis, design, modelling, implementation and application of Computational Intelligence techniques that tackle significant Software Engineering problems. The topics of interest call, especially, for papers with theoretical and practical importance, while research papers reporting emerging and innovative ideas are also highly desirable.
Nature-inspired Computational Intelligence methodologies demonstrate adaptive behaviour and learning ability. As such, they can be effectively utilized to address convoluted problems and applications in real-world environments, where traditional methodologies and approaches find highly complex and difficult to tackle. Particularly, techniques associated with learning, reasoning, optimization and decision making, such as Fuzzy Systems, Artificial Neural Networks, Evolutionary Computing, Swarm Intelligence, Artificial Immune Systems, Dempster-Shafer Theory, Chaos Theory and Multi-valued Logic, may be applied in real-world conditions and serve the Software Engineering community.

The integration of Software Engineering with Computational Intelligence is very important to both academic and research communities, as well as to software industries. In fact, software development teams adopt a variety of conceptual and algorithmic practices that are combined with Computational Intelligence methods within various areas of Software Engineering, such as Project Management, Risk Analysis, Testing, Cost Estimation, Reliability Engineering and Failure Modelling. Computational Intelligence also provides the means for more precise measurement of software metrics and more effective handling of uncertainty or ambiguity of information.

The CISE workshop welcomes research papers with direct impact or high dependence on practical issues encountered in real-world environments. Industrial- and market-oriented research papers are also highly encouraged. To this end, CISE’s Program Committee consists of members not only from academic/research institutions but also from the software industry, and these members will assist in the review process in cases of industrial- and market-related papers.
