September 9-12, 2019
Registration deadline: May 26, 2019
This workshop will bring together AI and SE researchers from the UK and Russia (and potentially other countries) to discuss applications of AI to SE, specifically ML and NLP, and develop future directions of research in this emerging area. Application examples include program analysis (e.g. extracting knowledge from documentation, code reuse), prediction (e.g. finding defects, predicting development time and cost), synthesis and generation (e.g. smart code completion), and transformation (e.g. software remodularization, automated bug fixes).
To date, there are first successes in AI for SE, but much more can be achieved. Progress is slowed by the lack of researchers with expertise in both areas. Bringing together AI and SE researchers will be instrumental in moving this research forward. The four-day workshop will feature tutorials and keynote lectures, but most of the time will be dedicated to networking and creation of new collaborative projects.
