Workshop - MaLTeSQE’16: Machine Learning Techniques for Software Quality Evaluation

MaLTeSQE’16: Machine Learning Techniques for Software Quality Evaluation

15-17 September 2016
Wrocław, Poland

Co-located with: XVIII KKIO Software Engineering Conference

In recent years we have been observing a rising interest in adopting various approaches to support machine learning and decision-making processes in several areas of software engineering. These models and algorithms help to reduce effort and risk related to human judgment in favor of automated systems, which are able to make informed decisions based on available data and evaluated with objective criteria.

Software quality is the area that deserves particular attention. At all levels: source code quality, process quality and the quality of entire systems, researchers are still looking for new, more effective methods of assessing various qualitative characteristics.

The aim of the workshop is to provide an overview of emerging trends in applying machine learning approaches to software quality evaluation.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Application of machine-learning in software evaluation
  • Analysis of multi-source data
  • Knowledge acquisition from software repositories
  • Adoption and validation of machine learning models and algorithms in software engineering
  • Decision support and analysis in software engineering
  • Predicting models in software engineering
