Empirical Mining Software Repositories Research

Goal: Mining Software Repositories (MSRs) have become popular as evidence-based software engineering research that allows gathering and analysing large datasets of software-related data. This project studies MSRs as a methodology, to determine evidence-based processes and guidelines to conduct them, review studies using them, and assess the dichotomy of ‘privacy vs utility’ when striving for reproducibility.

Participants: - Dr. Melina Vidoni, Australian National University, Australia. - Dr Zadia Codabux, University of Saskatchewan, Canada. - Dr Fatemeh H. Fard, University of British Columbia, Canada. - Dr Nicolas Díaz-Ferreyra, University of Technology Hamburg, Germany.
