Co-Located Events

The following events will be co-located with ICSE 2012:

MSR 2012- 9th Working Conference on Mining Software Repositories, June 2-3, 2012

The Mining Software Repositories (MSR) field analyzes the rich data available in software repositories to uncover interesting and actionable information about software systems and projects. The goal of this two-day working conference is to advance the science and practice of MSR.

SEAMS 2012- 7th International Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems, June 4-5, 2012

An increasingly important requirement for a software-intensive system is the ability to self-manage by adapting itself at run time to handle changing context, resources, and user needs. SEAMS brings together researchers and practitioners to engage in stimulating dialogue regarding the fundamental principles, state of the art, and critical challenges of self-adaptive and self-managing systems.

ICSSP 2012- International Conference on Software and System Process, June 2-3, 2012

Processes are ubiquitous in the modern Software and Systems Engineering world and regarded as one major means for achieving and ensuring the quality of final products. Processes from other domains face similar challenges such as adaptability, coordination and standard conformance, yet share similarities. By sharing process development research and practices from other domains, ICSSP 2012 aims at investigating novel solutions to today's process challenges.

Book Launch & Dinner in Honor of Judith Bishop, June 2, 2012

Celebrating the launch of the book Patterns, Programming and Everything, a dinner will be organized at ICSE 2012 on Saturday June 2, 2012. Carlo Ghezzi will give a talk and the book, a Festschrift to honor Judy, will be launched. To join the celebration, please register at For more information, please contact Karin Breitman <>.

WRT12- Fifth Workshop on Refactoring Tools, June 1, 2012

While there is a great deal of interest in developing tool support for refactoring, researchers and tool vendors rarely work together. This forum will enable the transfer of ideas and expertise both ways: researchers can show the state-of-the-art analyses they are using in developing tool support for refactoring, and tool vendors can offer valuable insights on the challenges of scaling such analyses to realistic applications. By bringing together researchers and tool vendors we can shorten the time to embody ideas into production systems. For more information, see the workshop homepage.
