It is our great pleasure to welcome everyone to the International Workshop on Empirical Software Engineering in Practice 2013 (IWESEP 2013). IWESEP 2013 is held in Bangkok, Thailand, and colocated with 20th Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference (APSEC 2013). Since its first meeting in 2009, IWESEP has been held annually in Japan. This is the first time that IWESEP has been held outside Japan.
The goal of our workshop is to foster the development of the area by providing a forum where young researchers and practitioners can report on and discuss their new research results and applications in the area of empirical software engineering. The workshop encourages the exchange of ideas within the international community so as to be able to understand, from an empirical viewpoint, strengths and weaknesses of technology in use and new technologies, with the expectation of furthering the more generic field of software engineering.
IWESEP 2013 received 20 submissions from 12 different countries. After the careful evaluations of the program committee, 9 papers have been accepted to be presented at the workshop. The papers cover a variety of topics, including project management, fault prediction, formal verification and analysis of open source development processes.
In addition, we will hold the MSR School in Asia as the keynote talk at IWESEP 2013. The MSR School in Asia provides an overview of the Mining Software Repositories (MSR) filed and an opportunity to learn the techniques used in this field. We have invited the young excellent researcher, Dr. Dongsun Kim, in the MSR field to give the keynote.
Finally, on behalf of the program committee and the organizing committee, we thank you for attending IWESEP 2013 and hope that you will enjoy the workshop. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the organizers who spent considerable time reviewing publications and preparations for this workshop.
We hope you will have a great time and an unforgettable experience at the IWESEP 2013.
