MSR School in Asia

We are excited to announce the MSR School tutorial at IWESEP 2010. The goal of the tutorial is to give participants an overview of the Mining Software Repositories (MSR) filed and an opportunity to learn the techniques used in this field. MSR is a rapidly growing field that holds an annual tutorial and a co-located working conference at ICSE every year.

We have invited some of the top researchers in the MSR field to give the tutorial. They will be giving the MSR related lectures at the IWESEP tutorial:

    Dr. Ahmed Hassan (main contact). Ahmed E. Hassan is the NSERC/RIM Industrial Research Chair in Software Engineering for Ultra Large Scale systems at the School of Computing in Queen’s University. He spearheaded the organization of the Mining Software Repositories (MSR) conference and community. Early tools and techniques developed by his team are already integrated into products used by millions of users worldwide. His industrial experience includes helping architect the Blackberry wireless platform at RIM, and working for IBM Research at the Almaden Research Lab and the Computer Research Lab at Nortel Networks. His research interests are mining software repositories, scaling software analysis and testing techniques to large scale software systems. http://www.cs.queensu.ca/~ahmed/

    Dr. Sung Kim. Sung Kim is an assistant professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.His research area is Software Engineering, focusing on software evolution, repository data mining, development social network mining, program analysis, and empirical studies. His chief research interest is programmer productivity, in particular, identifying faults in program development or in deployed programs by mining software repositories, source code (static analysis), and program execution (dynamic analysis).He served on a variety of program committees, including ICSE, ESEM, ICSM, and MSR. http://www.cs.ust.hk/~hunkim/

    Dr. Thomas Zimmermann. Thomas Zimmermann is a researcher at Microsoft Research and an adjunct professor at the University of Calgary. His research focuses on systematic mining of version archives and bug databases to conduct empirical studies and to build new tools. His tools can automatically identify related change, method usage patterns, and cross-cutting concerns. He co-organized an ICSM working session on Myths in Software Engineering (MythSE ’07), the DEFECTS workshops in 2008 and 2009, and RSSE ’08 and ’10. He served on a variety of program committees, including MSR, PROMISE, CSMR, and the ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys). He is PC co-chair for MSR ’10 and ’11. His research interests are empirical software engineering, mining software repositories, recommender systems, and social networking. http://thomas-zimmermann.com

We hope you can join us to take advantage of the tutorial and look forward to receiving your IWESEP submissions.
