We are very pleased to announce the 1st North American Search Based Software Engineering Symposium, NasBASE 2015. The goal of the symposium is bring together the rapidly growing North American search based software engineering (SBSE) community in a welcoming forum for discussion and dissemination, and to sustain the recent flourishing of interest in the field.
Search-based software engineering (SBSE) is a software development practice which focuses on couching software engineering problems as optimization problems and utilizing metaheuristic techniques to discover near optimal solutions to those problems. SBSE has been applied to a wide variety of engineering problems, including requirements management, software testing and capability management. SBSE offers a productive and proven approach to software engineering through automated discovery of near-optimal solutions to problems, and has proven itself to be effective on a wide variety of problems. We invite papers that address problems in the software engineering domain through the use of heuristic search techniques. We particularly encourage papers demonstrating novel search strategies or the application of SBSE techniques to new problems in software engineering. Accepted papers will appear in proceedings published by Advances in Computers, Elsevier and indexed by DBLP. The authors of selected best symposium papers will be invited to submit extended versions for a special issue of Journal of Software: Evolution and Process edited by Wiley. Further information on paper in the paper submission page.
The venue for NasBASE 2015 is the Detroit metro area: Motor City, Rock City, Motown, the Automotive Capital of the World- whatever you call it, Detroit is steeped in the strong tenets of a unique combination of culture and industry. Please see the venue page for more information.
