CIASE 2013

Computational Intelligence Applications in Software Engineering – Special Session

The CIASE 2013 provides an excellent international forum for sharing knowledge and results in theory, methodology and applications of computational intelligence in software engineering, targeting the provision of alternative, interdisciplinary approaches for tackling problems found in Software Engineering. The integration of Software Engineering with Computational Intelligence is very important to both academic and research communities as well as to software industries. The overlap between Computational Intelligence and Software Engineering has seen the development of Computational Intelligence applications to address various problems in Software Engineering. Some example applications include software measurement selection, defect prediction models, Cost Estimation and Failure Modeling, software reuse, software requirements gathering, project management, etc.

The aim of this special session is to obtain a good perspective into the current state of practice of computational intelligence applications to address important Software Engineering problems. some topics relevant to this session include, but are not limited to:

Clustering and Classification
Decision Support
Machine Learning
Data Mining
Text Mining & Retrieval
Fuzzy Logic & Systems
Probabilistic Reasoning
Model Learning
Recommender Systems
Expert Systems
Artificial Neural Networks
Evolutionary Algorithms
Ranking Algorithms
Cognitive Processes

Researchers are encouraged to submit their contributions that have direct impact or high dependence on practical issues encountered in real-world environments. Industrial- and market-oriented research papers are also highly encouraged. To this end, CIASE’s Program Committee consists of members not only from academic/research institutions but also from the software industry, and these members will assist in the review process in cases of industrial- and market-related papers.

Submit your paper to CIASE.

Submission & Publication

Accepted papers will be published on IEEEXplore (IEEE Digital Library). Prospective authors are invited to submit an original full-length paper (10-point font) in IEEE format via the EDAS submissions system at ICCIT EDAS (special session) . Note that the maximum number of pages is 6; 5 pages plus 1 additional page allowed with a charge for the one additional page of USD100 if accepted. Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review in any other conference or journal and has not been previously published. IEEE specification based Latex and MS-Word templates for paper submission are available here.

Registration is required for all participants. To be published in the proceedings, every accepted paper MUST have at least one registered author at the full rate and must be presented at the conference. For authors with multiple papers, one full registration is valid for up to 2 papers. More details about the registration can be found at ICCIT registration page.
