– Measuring Program Comprehension: Experience and Perspective (Janet Siegmund – EmSE 2014, ICSE 2014)


Empirical software engineering is an active research field to which many European institutions and researchers are contributing, in top-tier conferences and journals. The goal of EOSESE’2014, the first European Open Symposium in Empirical Software Engineering is to help structure the community. By getting to know each other’s work, it will be easier to identify potential collaborations and future joint-projects.

EOSESE’2014 is meant to be open, to gather people and foster collaborations. The format of the symposium is as follows. Talks will be given to give some visibility to recent results published in authoritative conferences and journals or to present  a new dataset or a new tool. No formal proceedings will be published.

–Martin Monperrus, EOSESE’2014 Organization Chair

On behalf of the French research consortium in empirical software engineering.


EOSESE’2014 will be held on Monday, June 30, 2014 in Lille. Lille is a very central European city, 45 minutes away from Charles de Gaulle airport, 1:20 away from London by train and only 30 minutes away from Brussels (not enough time for your next review!). EOSESE’2014 is the perfect opportunity for attending the conference series on Component-Based Software Engineering and Software Architecture (Comparch’2014), which starts on Tuesday 31 June in Lille.

EOSESE’2014 is the perfect opportunity to visit Lille, a wonderful city with a rich history and a top cultural offering.

Venue: EOSESE’2014 will take place at the University of Lille in Villeneuve d’Ascq (Salle du Conseil, Bat M3, LIFL, http://goo.gl/maps/u92Hr) (metro: “Campus Scientifique”).

EOSESE’2014 is organized by the French research consortium in empirical software engineering, whose current steering committee is composed of Nicolas Anquetil, Benoit Baudry, Xavier Blanc, Jean-Rémy Falleri, Julia Lawall, Martin Monperrus.

EOSESE’2014 is sponsored by the LIFL (Laboratoire d’Informatique Fondamentale de Lille).

Call for Talks

Two kinds of talks are possible:

[long talks] A long talk proposal is expected to contain the title of the talk and a reference to the related publication (journal, conference, tech report).  Since the EOSESE’2014 aims at disseminating recent results, we expect a long talk to be based on work published in 2013 or 2014.

[short talks]  To facilitate new collaborations, we will have a special session called Meet my dataset/Meet my tool.  This session will consist of very short talks describing either datasets or tools that are mature enough to be used by other groups.  These need not describe new work, but should describe work for which the visibility has so far been limited.  Any dataset or tool to be presented in this session must be freely available at the time of the conference.

The label “EOSESE’2014” can be used on reports that are related to the talk  and published in open-access platforms such as Arxiv or HAL.

The submission deadline is June 10 2014, the submission is done on easychair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eosese2014.
