[Joint Call for Papers and Participation] Software Engineering @Salerno Week (featuring SATTOSE, the International Summer School on Software Engineering, and EMELIOT)
by Gilberto RECUPITO
Dear SATToSE members,
We are pleased to announce the Software Engineering @Salerno Week, an
international event which will be held on 12-15 June, 2023 within the
University Campus located in Fisciano (close to Salerno). The SE week is
organized by the Software Engineering (SeSa) Research Group. Salerno is
located in Southern Italy (about 50 Km far from Naples) and it is very
close to some of the most beautiful and historical places of Italy, such as
the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Pompei, and Paestum. The Software Engineering
@Salerno Week will feature three international events: The 15th edition of
the Seminar Series on Advanced Techniques & Tools for Software Evolution
(SATToSE, June 12-14, 2023 - http://sattose.org/2023). SATToSE seeks work
in progress papers, publication summaries, and technology showdown
demonstrations on themes connected to software visualization techniques,
tools for co-evolving various software artifacts, their consistency
management, runtime adaptability, and context awareness, as well as
empirical results about software evolution. The Call for Papers is
available on the SATToSE 2023 website. The 16th edition of the
International Summer School on Software Engineering (ISSSE, June 13-15,
2023 - https://sesalabunisa.github.io/ISSSE-2023/). The school attracts
Ph.D. students and young researchers from all around the world and aims at
providing a forum to let these students get in touch with top Software
Engineering scholars and the research they pursue. Ph.D. students will have
the chance to showcase their research and receive feedback on their ongoing
work. Ph.D. students will have the chance to make an exam and get 3 ETCS,
if required by their universities. More information about the school are
available on the ISSSE 2023 website. The 1st edition of the Workshop on
Engineering Machined Learning-Intensive IoT Systems (EMELIOT). This is a
thematic workshop on topics connected to the development, design, testing,
maintenance, and evolution of complex IoT systems enabled by machine
learning algorithms. EMELIOT seeks to foster discussion on the next
advances and challenges for the software engineering community with respect
to the engineering aspects of machine learning-intensive IoT systems. More
information about the workshop are available on the ISSSE 2023 website. The
three events will have a blended program and will feature keynotes of
top-tier software engineering researchers. We are delighted to release our
lineup of speakers: - Luciano Baresi, Politecnico di Milano (Italy) -
Massimiliano Di Penta (University of Sannio, Italy) - Mark Harman (Meta &
University College London, United Kingdom) - Helena Holmstrom Olsson (Malmo
University, Sweden) - Alexander Serebrenik (Eindhoven University of
Technology, The Netherlands) - Mairieli Wessel (Radboud University, The
Netherlands) The registration deadline is fixed on May 5, 2023. The school
is intended to be as an in-person event, yet there will be a remote
component to allow the participation of students who cannot attend the SE
week physically. The registration fees are the following: * Full-week
