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
encourage also 

Bachelor and Master Computer Science or Software Engineering students to
attend the school.

The school will be held at the campus of the University of Salerno, 

located in Via Giovanni Paolo II, 132 I-84084 Fisciano (SA), Italy.

The University of Salerno is very close to some of the most beautiful

and historical places of Italy, such as Amalfi Coast, Capri, Pompei,

and Paestum.





Registration fees are EUR 500 for academic and industrial 

researchers and EUR 250 for PhD students (proof required).

They include admission to all the lectures, copy of the slides

and other materials prepared by the lecturers, luncheons, 

and social functions.


Attendees can also register for specific tutorials


The deadline for registration is May 20, 2014.


Detailed information about program, registration, travel, and

accommodation is available at:





Student talks and tool demos are intended for attendees (mainly PhD 

students) who want to present their research work. 

Attendees interested in giving a talk or demonstrating a tool should 

register and submit the slides of their presentation by May 20, 2014. 

Attendees will be notified about the inclusion of their talk/demo in

the program by June 3, 2014.


Further information is available at:




We are pleased to announce the "ISSSE 2014 Travel Grant" to encourage

and master students to attend ISSSE 2014. We encourage all Bachelor/Master 

Computer Science or related topic full time students interested to apply.


The grant will cover accommodation and travel expenses.

The deadline for applying is April 7, 2014.
