Oakland University’s Oakland Center to Host International Conference on Automated Software Engineering

The Oakland Center at Oakland University will be the host site for the 37e IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering October 10-14. Approximately 400 participants will travel from all corners of the globe to take part in this annual event. Deadline for early bird registration is September 12.

ASE is one of the most prestigious international conferences and the premier forum for research in computer science, especially in software engineering. In fact, it’s one of the few A* rated conferences.

“It is truly a coup for Oakland University to be able to host this global conference in October,” said Marouane Kessentini, Ph.D., chair of the department of computer science at Oakland University in the School of Engineering and Computer Science and general chairman of the conference. “Each year, this conference brings together hundreds of top researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss the foundations, techniques and tools for automating the analysis, design, implementation , testing and maintenance of large software systems.”

This year also saw a record number of papers submitted compared to the previous 37 years. A total of 774 articles were submitted, including 531 articles for the main track, 56 for the NIER track, 41 for the tool demo, 31 for the industry showcase, 24 for Journal First, 20 for LBR and 18 for the student research competition. Typically, the conference acceptance rate is around 20% of papers submitted. Papers accepted at the conference will be published in the IEEE and ACM proceedings.

This year’s conference kicks off on Monday, October 10 with tutorials, a doctoral symposium and workshops.

Tuesday sees the keynote opening with keynote speakers Mark Harman and Facebook’s Inna Dvortsova discussing Automated Testing as Production Simulation: Opportunities and Research Challenges.

In addition, Lionel Briand, from the University of Ottawa and the University of Luxembourg will present a conference on Autonomous systems: how to solve the dilemma between autonomy and security

Mixed into the conference agenda, attendees will also share research papers, early journal articles, late-breaking results, NIER Track, poster presentations, tool demos, hold a showcase industry and will offer a student research competition. This all runs until Thursday, October 13. Then, on Friday, October 14, the conference concludes with more workshop opportunities.

ASE2022 will take place in person, but accommodations will be made for virtual attendance on a case-by-case basis.
