CfP: 3rd International Workshop on Software Engineering Methods in Spreadsheets (SEMS'16)

http://spreadsheetlab.org/sems-16/

A STAF workshop
July, 2016, Vienna, Austria


* Important Dates *

Deadline for abstracts: April 11, 2016
Deadline for submissions: April 18, 2016
Notification of acceptance: May 25, 2016
Camera-ready: June 17, 2016
Workshop date: July 4, 2016


* Topic *

Spreadsheets are heavily used in industry as they are easy to create and evolve through their intuitive visual interface. They are often developed as simple tools initially, but over time, spreadsheets can become increasingly complex, up to the point where they become too difficult to maintain. Indeed, in many ways, spreadsheets are similar to "professional" software: both are used for storage and manipulation of data and the presentation of results to the user. But unlike in "professional" software, in spreadsheets activities like design, implementation, and maintenance have to be undertaken by end-users, not trained professionals. This makes applying methods and techniques from other software technologies a challenging task.

The role of SEMS is to explore the possibilities of adopting successful methods from other software contexts to spreadsheets. Some, like testing and modeling, have been tried before and can be built upon. For methods that have not yet been tried on spreadsheets, SEMS will serve as a platform for early feedback.

Topics of interest to SEMS'16 include, but are not restricted to, the following:

- Understandability/Maintainability of spreadsheets
- Error finding/Debugging
- Modeling with spreadsheets
- Learnability
- Alternatives for the spreadsheet interface
- Comparative studies of spreadsheet environments

If you have doubts on the suitability of your paper, feel free to send us an email: sems16[at]spreadsheetlab.org


* Submission, Selection & Publication *

We welcome both full research papers (max. 15 pages) and short papers (max. 5 pages) written in English and prepared using the specific LNCS templates. Each research paper will be subjected to at least three reviewers from the PC. Paper submissions will be made electronically using the EasyChair service (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sems2016). All submissions must be original work, and must not have been previously published, nor be under consideration for publication, elsewhere. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and participate in the workshop. However, we incentivate all the authors to attend the workshop to foster discussion.

Accepted papers will be published in the STAF Workshop Post-Proceedings by Springer Verlag in their LNCS series.

Additionally, we solicit industrial case reports (max. 2 pages) for panel discussions (no particular format required) with all participants. The industrial case submissions will be reviewed and discussed by the organizers and three members of the program committee in a formal video meeting.


* Workshop Format *

All accepted papers will be presented during the workshop. Furthermore, we will organize a discussion panel for the industrial case reports. We encourage spreadsheet users from industry to report their experience and specific spreadsheet issues, so that all attending researchers can propose and discuss possible solution approaches with them.

The HASLab (INESC TEC / UM) is organizing the 5th edition of Summer School for PhD students GTTSE on the topic "Grand Timely Topics in Software Engineering".

http://gttse.wikidot.com

The workshops also have a different shape. They are now applied surveys and not just an introduction on the speaker's contributions.

As in previous editions, we managed to gather an excellent set of speakers (including Matthew Dwyer: Editor In Chief of IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering), which I think will be in the interest of INESC TEC researchers.

Probabilistic program analysis
Matthew Dwyer (University of Nebraska, USA)

How ontologies can help in software engineering
Cesar Gonzalez-Perez (Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Spain)

Empirical Evaluation of Programming and Programming Language Constructs
Stefan Hanenberg (University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany)

Model Synchronization
Frédéric Jouault (ESEO Institute of Science and Technology, France)

To merge or not to merge: managing software product families
Julia Rubin (MIT, USA)

People Analytics in Software Development
Leif Singer (University of Victoria, Canada)

DSLs in Robotics: A Case Study in Programming Self-reconfigurable Robots
Ulrik Pagh Schultz (University of Southern Denmark, Denmark)

Structured Program Generation Techniques
Yannis Smaragdakis (University of Athens, Greece)

Refactoring and beyond
Friedrich Steimann (FernUniversität in Hagen, Germany)

Software Engineering Processes in the Cloud
Nikolai Tillmann (Microsoft Research, USA)

Name Binding: Paradigms, Representation and Specification
Guido Wachsmuth (Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands)

Even though the submission deadline is coming very close (July 3rd), this deadline does not apply to submissions made by INESC TEC's researchers. Submissions are to made through GTTSE's website (http://gttse.wikidot.com/) or by mail to jacome@fct.unl.pt.

Depois de ter sido responsável pelo primeiro grau de Doutoramento em Informática concedido em Portugal, no início dos anos 80, o DI tem mantido a sua posição de liderança na formação de Doutores em Informática, tendo concedido 10 diplomas de Doutoramento em 2015.

A primeira licenciatura de informática do País arrancou há 40 anos na Universidade Nova de Lisboa. Os primeiros geeks portugueses faziam noitadas para poderem trabalhar com um dos poucos computadores que não exigiam cartões perfurados. Ninguém tinha PC ou telemóvel. Mas eram felizes.

Já aderi ao abaixo-assinado da DECO: vamos exigir regras para a refidelização dos serviços de telecomunicações. Junta-te também e consegue ajuda gratuita, em caso de problemas com a operadora.

Only 2 days left for #GTTSE 2015 early registration http://gttse.wikidot.com 
SCOPE. Historically, in the first four editions of GTTSE, the school series focused on generative and transformational techniques in software engineering, as evident from the original acronym (GTTSE - Generative and Transformational Techniques in Software Engineering).
