ASE 2020
Mon 21 - Fri 25 September 2020 Melbourne, Australia

Workshops at ASE provide an opportunity for exchanging views, advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results on topics related to Automated Software Engineering. Workshops can also serve as platforms to nurture new scientific communities. Workshops should not be seen as an alternative forum for presenting full research papers.

Here are the ASE2020 workshops and a brief description of each:

Workshop Submission Deadline CFP
Software Engineering Automation: A Natural Language Perspective (NLP-SEA) 15th July 2020 Call for papers
NLP-SEA aims at bringing together international researchers and practitioners in the fields of automated software engineering and natural language processing to present and discuss applications, experiences and emerging advanced techniques. To this end, the workshop welcomes original articles on every aspect related to the application of NLP in Automated SE or Application of SE techniques for NLP. The workshop aims at the contributions towards having scientific novelty as well as to foster discussion and networking.
Human Centric Software Engineering & Cyber Security 3rd Aug 2020 Call for papers
Humans are a key part of software development, including customers, designers, coders, testers and end users. While most of the current software engineering research and practice are function, data or process oriented, human-centric software engineering focuses on the human factors in engineering software systems. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss fundamentally new ways to automatically capture and use human-centric software requirements during software development and verifying that systems meet these requirements. With a special focus on cyber security, this workshop solicit papers focusing on all software engineering tasks and processes during the human-centric software development lifecycle.
Advances in Mobile App Analysis (A-Mobile 2020) 7th Aug 2020 Call for papers
The international workshop on advances in mobile app analysis (A-Mobile) aims at bringing together international researchers and practitioners in the field of mobile app analysis to present and discuss emerging advanced techniques. To this end, we will welcome original articles on every aspect related to mobile apps analysis such as static and dynamic analysis.
1st International Workshop on Sustainable Software Engineering 3rd Aug 2020 Call for papers
With the growing importance of sustainability and sustainable practices in various domains, it becomes important to delve deeper on sustainability aspects of software and software engineering in general. The SUSTAINSE workshop aims to provide a venue for researchers and practitioners to come together and exchange views on sustainable software engineering and define a manifesto for future research in the field. The workshop will focus on the key challenges in weaving ‘sustainability’ as a design consideration in software engineering and explore the novel automated software engineering techniques for building and running sustainable software systems.

Workshops at ASE provide an opportunity for exchanging views, advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results on topics related to Automated Software Engineering. Workshops can also serve as platforms to nurture new scientific communities. Workshops should not be seen as an alternative forum for presenting full research papers.

Call for Workshop Proposals

ASE 2020 is soliciting proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. The workshops will be co-located with the conference and take place on Monday September 21, 2019 or Friday September 25, 2020. The organizers will decide the exact day after the proposals have been reviewed and accepted. Only one-day workshops can be accepted.

Workshop registration will be waived for one keynote speaker per workshop.

Proposals for organizing workshops should be written in English, limited to 4 pages (in ACM format, following the formatting guidelines for the main track), and submitted electronically through the ASE 2020 HotCRP submission site.

All submissions must not exceed four pages in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the ACM Proceedings Template (LaTEX users must use \documentclass[sigconf,review,anonymous]{acmart}). Submissions should be made through the HotCRP submission site.

Workshop proposals should include the following information:

  • Theme and goals of the workshop including its relevance to the field of Automated Software Engineering.

  • Targeted audience and the expected number of participants (minimum and maximum).

  • Workshop format (e.g., paper presentations, breakout sessions, panel-like discussions, combination of formats).

  • The equipment, room capacity, and any other resource necessary for the organization of the workshop.

  • Publicity strategy, participant solicitation and selection process that will be used by the workshop organizers to promote the workshop.

  • Brief description of the organizer’s background, including relevant past experience on organizing workshops and contact information.

  • Initial version of the call for papers that the workshop organizers intend to use (max. 1page)

  • Workshop duration and any other scheduling constraints.

Note that the workshop co-chairs will consider the scheduling constraints specified by the organizers, but the acceptance of a workshop proposal does not guarantee adherence to the requested date/time. The workshop co-chairs will assume that workshop proposers will be able to run a workshop on the dates that ASE 2020 has reserved for workshops.

Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the ASE 2020 workshop co-chairs. Acceptance will be based on an evaluation of the workshop’s potential for generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in the topic, the organizer’s ability to lead a successful workshop and the potential for attracting a sufficient number of participants. Accepted workshops must adhere to the common deadlines that will be listed for submissions of papers, acceptance of papers and preparation of proceedings
