A series of workshops will be held in conjunction with the ASE 2014 conference to provide an opportunity for exchanging views, advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results on topics related to Automated Software Engineering. The workshops will be organized before the main conference (Monday, Tuesday).

International Workshop on Long-term Industrial Collaboration on Software Engineering (WISE 2014)

A long-term cooperation between academia and industry is every important factor in obtaining success in industrial-relevant research, research validation in a full-scale industrial context, innovation and technology transfer. There are many examples of a long-term good cooperation that have led to many great research and innovation results. At the same time maintaining a continuous cooperation is very challenging due to organizational changes, or changes in business goral of a company, or inadequate motivations factor from academia site to keep long-term close relations. By long-term we mean a period of at least six months several years or several decades of years. The goal of this WISE is to bring researchers and practitioners together to exchange experiences of cooperation between academia and industry, with emphasis on experiences and new ideas in achieving and maintaining a long-term cooperation.

Sixth International Workshop on Feature-Oriented Software Development (FOSD)

Feature-oriented software development (FOSD) is an emerging paradigm of software engineering. It aims at constructing, customizing, and synthesizing large-scale software systems from a set of units of functionality called features. The key idea of FOSD is to decompose systems into features, allowing tailor-made software for specific needs. While there has been significant research progress, realizing FOSD and maintaining a feature-oriented system is still challenging to industry. The goal of FOSD'14 is to foster the collaboration between researchers and practitioners working in FOSD and the related fields of software product lines, model-driven engineering, program synthesis, and feature interactions. The workshop is divided into a research session, comprising research paper presentations, and an FOSD in practice session, comprising practice-oriented "tech talks" about FOSD. Lightning talks for both sessions are also welcome. The workshop features a keynote on feature modularity and feature interfaces by Joanne M. Atlee (University of Waterloo, Canada), and an invited tech talk by Markus Völter (Itemis Germany) on realising FOSD with the Jetbrains Meta Programming System (MPS).

5th International Workshop on TESting Techniques & Experimentation Benchmarks for Event-Driven Software (TESTBEDS)

The TESTBEDS International Workshop aims to increase the cross-fertilization of automated testing methods for Event Driven Software (EDS), which includes GUIs, Mobile Platforms, Web Applications, Protocols, etc. We expect a mix of papers from researchers and practitioners on topics including, but not limited to, modeling, test generation, oracles, coverage, security and regression testing. A primary goal is to promote a discussion on how to diminish the effort in testing EDS, either by using automatic methods to assess the quality of EDS, or by using abstractions and promoting reusability, for instance, test applications that work on different platforms or that reuse the same test strategy after a minor configuration process. TESTBEDS will also provide a forum to discuss ways to improve the EDS testing community’s ability to compare results between different researchers in a meaningful way.

Lobbying in Horizon2020: For better calls and topics within Process Industrial IT and Automation

Date: Monday, September 15th, 10:30-12:30 (room 101)
Organizer and chair: Gunnar Widforss

There is a Swedish collaboration within Process IT and Automation which provides a platform for advocacy to improve the possibilities for these industries to use the European research and innovation program Horizon 2020.

The intention of this collaboration is that this will lead to better possibilities for development in this area within Europe, better research and better businesses, and in the end better processes, better products, a safer, more efficient and more sustainable process industry with less environmental pressure.

Both researchers and industrial persons have participated in a set of workshops to develop a joint message that details our needs in this area. This workshop, in conjunction with ASE, SLE and GPCE, is the last step before bringing the message to policy makers in the European Commission (DG Research and DG CONNECT), and welcomes conference participants. We will have a draft statement, which we will refine during the workshop.
