The objective of the International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering (ISESE) is to foster the development of the area by providing a forum where researchers and practitioners can report on and discuss new research results in the area of empirical software engineering.
The symposium encourages the exchange of ideas within the international community so as to be able to understand, from an empirical viewpoint, the strengths and weaknesses of technology in use and new technologies, with the expectation of furthering the more generic field of software engineering. The symposium focuses on the processes, design and structure of empirical studies as well as the results of specific studies. These studies may be on original or replicated studies, varying from controlled experiments to field studies, from quantitative to qualitative. Selected papers will be published in " Empirical Software Engineering: An International Journal".
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
