ACM SAC track on Quality Assurance and Software Mining

Track on

Quality Assurance and Software Mining

The 36th ACM/SIGAPP Symposium On Applied Computing (ACM SAC'21) provides a variety of tracks.

The objective of the QASM track is to provide researchers and software developers the opportunity to present their observations, experiences, and research in the area of code analysis, verification, quality assurance, and software mining. The aim is to provide this novel topic to ACM SAC, which is not currently sufficiently covered. The area is broad, covering code transformation, code analysis, user interface derivation, automated test extraction, quality assurance, clone detection, inconsistency detection, security reviews, API dependency mining, control-flow modeling and reconstruction, software repository mining with many others. The outcomes of research in this area is expected to report on the best practices, state of the art, production level experience, impact on the development, design, maintenance, sustainability, security, and other software quality attributes.
