JIMSE is co-organized by the European Coordination Action EternalS:
Trustworthy Eternal Systems via Evolving Software, Data and Knowledge.

Workshop Description

The workshop aims at bringing together worldwide stakeholders and their related communities to discuss current research trends on the use of intelligent techniques for effective and efficient design of software systems. To amplify the impact
of the workshop, two different communities sharing the above-mentioned aim will join for the organization of a large event. These include:

  • The Trustworthy Eternal Systems via Evolving Software, Data and Knowledge (EternalS) community, who has been developing in conjunction with the homonymous European Coordination Action (https://www.eternals.eu/). This includes stakeholders of four broad different ICT areas such as: Learning Systems for Knowledge Management and Representation, Software Systems, Networked Systems and Secure Systems. Such community is sharing competencies and technology for reciprocally improving the specific areas, for example, applying machine learning for anomaly detection or for helping establishing network connection between devices.
  • The Intelligent Techniques in Software Engineering (ISEW) community, who has been developing through different workshops (see the past venues below). The community focuses on intelligent techniques for addressing, studying, analyzing and understanding critical software development issues, such as software quality and reliability, software cost estimation, software requirements, specifications engineering and software project management.

The above communities focus on traditional AI technologies such as: (i) fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms; (ii) statistical machine learning (supervised, unsupervised, semi-supervised learning) and domain adaptation; and (iii) specific intelligent approaches for text mining & retrieval, graph mining and ranking algorithms. These are applied to extract patterns and identify relations regarding (a) the different phases and needs of software development and analysis as well as (b) designing effective security policies and networking systems.
