11th International Summer School on Software Engineering
30 June - 3 July, 2014
University of Salerno, Italy
The eleventh edition of the International Summer School on Software
Engineering intends to provide a contribution to PhD students
and academic and industrial researchers on latest findings in the
field of Software Engineering.
This year the school will be jointly organised by University of
Salerno and UCL-CREST and will have as topic Search-Based
Software Engineering (SBSE).
SBSE is a field in which search based optimisation algorithms are used
to address problems in Software Engineering. In particular, SBSE considers
problems that involve finding a suitable balance between competing and
potentially conflicting goals, such as looking for the set of requirements
that balances software development cost and customer satisfaction,
search for the best allocation of resources to a software development
project, search for the smallest set of test cases that covers all branches
in a software program, find the best way to structure the architecture
of a software system to enhance its maintainability, and so on.
SBSE has been successfully applied to different problems across
the Software Engineering lifecycle, from cost estimation, requirements and
project planning to testing, maintenance and re-engineering. There is also
an increasing interest in search based optimisation from the industrial
sector, as illustrated by work on testing involving Google and Microsoft,
and requirements engineering involving Motorola and Ericsson, to cite few.
The program of the school aims at creating discussion forums between
lecturers and industrial and academic attendees. It will include
tutorials on SBSE as well as tutorials on well-established SBSE areas
and emerging SBSE topics. Previous knowledge or experience with search
based optimisation is not required. The main aim of the school is to allow
the attendees to become productive in successfully applying search based
optimisation to a chosen Software Engineering problem of interest.
Submission of PhD student talks is encouraged to further stimulate the
Moreover, we are pleased to announce the "ISSSE 2014 Travel Grant" to
Bachelor and Master Computer Science or Software Engineering students to
attend the school.
