Abstract
The goal of the workshop series on empirical software engineering is to have discussions on issues related to current software engineering research and practice. Nowadays, SE technologies are employed that frequently lack sufficient evidence regarding their suitability, their limits, qualities, costs, and inherent risks. This supports the provision that evidence is becoming more and more important for practitioners and academics to support arguments and decisions in research as well as software engineering practice. The advent of the evidence-based software engineering paradigm emphasizes the importance of aggregating empirical results.
This goal of this workshop, "EXPERIENCE ON APPLYING QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE EMPIRICISM TO SOFTWARE ENGINEERING", is to discuss issues related to fostering the evidence-based paradigm. It therefore focuses on experiences with and approaches for quantitative and qualitative empirical evaluation and validation of Software Engineering techniques, methods, and tools. A major discussion relates to how to combine the qualitative and quantitative methods.
The workshop itself is the fifth one in the workshop series on empirical Software Engineering. The first one was held in conjunction with PROFES 2002 in Rovaniemi, the second one was held in conjunction with the Empirical Software Engineering International Week 2003 in Rome, the third was held 2005 in Oulu, fourth one in 2006 in Amsterdam both in conjunction with the PROFES Conference.
