Paper accepted at ECML-PKDD's NECTAR Track

We are happy to announce that our paper Learning from Software Project Histories: Predictive Studies Based on Mining Software Repositories was accepted at the NECTAR Track of the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery (ECML-PKDD). The NECTAR Track offers researchers who apply machine learning in other sciences in their daily work to discuss their work the machine learning community. 

Paper accepted at ESEM 2016

Our short paper on "Monitoring Software Quality by Means of Simulation Methods" was accepted at the ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement (ESEM) 2016. The paper describes an agent-based simulation model for software processes that was retrieved by mining software repositories. The work was done in the context of our project on Assuring Software Quality by Means of Simulation Methods

Paper accepted at SIMULTECH 2016


ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award at the MSR 2016

We are happy to announce that Fabian Trautsch, Steffen Herbold, Philip Makedonski, and Jens Grabowski won an ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award for their paper "Adressing Problems with External Validity of Repository Mining Studies Through a Smart Data Platform" at the 13th International Conference on Mining Software Repositories (MSR). Within the paper, four major problems in the state of practice of software repository mining that threaten the external validity of research results, i.e., the generalizability of drawn conclussions, are discussed. The SmartSHARK smart data platform is proposed and evaluated as a potential solution. The smart data platform is an outcome of the Master thesis of Fabian Trautsch which was supervised by Steffen Herbold. ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Awards can be awarded to the top 10% of technical full papers at high profile conferences sponsored by the ACM.

Kick off meeting for new SWZ project


We are happy to announce that the work in our project "Numerically Intensive Simulations on an Integrated Compute Infrastructure" was finally started by a kick off meeting with our project partners.

New STF for TTCN-3 Maintenance

The head of our group, Prof. Dr. Jens Grabowski, again joins a Specialist Task Force (STF) of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) for the maintenance of the Testing and Test Control Notation (TTCN-3). This is already 12th STF with this focus that Prof. Grabowski is part of. Details on the project can be found here: /research/further-development-and-maintenance-ttcn-3-stf-213-253-337-349-380-393-430-446-460-478-491.

Shorter office hours of Prof. Grabowski on 21. April

The office hours of Prof. Grabowski on 21st April will last only from 08:30 to 09:30 am.

No office hours of Prof. Grabowski on 24.03.2016

There will be no office hours of Prof. Grabowski on 24. March 2016. In urgent cases, please contact studiendekanatinformatik [dot] uni-goettingen [dot] de or studienberatungatinformatik [dot] uni-goettingen [dot] de.

SWZ project funding granted

In the context of the Simulation Science Center Clausthal / Göttingen (SWZ), our group applied for the funding of a project for "Agent-based Simulation Models for Supporting Quality Assurance in Software Projects". This funding was granted and allows us to continue our fruitful research on the overarching topic.
