Workshop Aim: The CISE workshop focuses on theoretical and applied research related to the utilization of Computational Intelligence techniques in Software Engineering, targeting the provision of alternative, interdisciplinary approaches for tackling problems found in Software Engineering.

The aim of the workshop is to host research papers that present practical solutions to emerging Software Engineering issues by applying Computational Intelligence methods. The workshop is associated with research and development advances in many fields of Software Engineering and particularly the study, analysis, design, modelling, implementation and application of Computational Intelligence techniques that tackle significant Software Engineering problems. The topics of interest call, especially, for papers with theoretical and practical importance, while research papers reporting emerging and innovative ideas are also highly desirable.

Nature-inspired Computational Intelligence methodologies demonstrate adaptive behaviour and learning ability. As such, they can be effectively utilized to address convoluted problems and applications in real-world environments, where traditional methodologies and approaches find highly complex and difficult to tackle. Particularly, techniques associated with learning, reasoning, optimization and decision making, such as Fuzzy Systems, Artificial Neural Networks, Evolutionary Computing, Swarm Intelligence, Artificial Immune Systems, Dempster-Shafer Theory, Chaos Theory and Multi-valued Logic, may be applied in real-world conditions and serve the Software Engineering community.

The integration of Software Engineering with Computational Intelligence is very important to both academic and research communities as well as to software industries. In fact, software development teams adopt a variety of conceptual and algorithmic practices that are combined with Computational Intelligence methods within various areas of Software Engineering, such as Project Management, Risk Analysis, Testing, Cost Estimation and Failure Modelling. Computational Intelligence also provides the means for more precise measurement of software metrics and more effective handling of uncertainty or ambiguity of information.

The CISE workshop welcomes research papers with direct impact or high dependence on practical issues encountered in real-world environments. Industrial- and market-oriented research papers are also highly encouraged. To this end, CISE's Program Committee consists of members not only from academic/research institutions but also from the software industry, and these members will assist in the review process in cases of industrial- and market-related papers.

In particular the topics of the workshop include but are not limited to the following:

Clustering and Classification
applied to
Requirements Engineering
Decision Support Software Architectures
Machine Learning Software Methodologies
Data Mining Software Design
Text Mining & Retrieval Software Performance
Fuzzy Logic & Systems Software Quality Modelling & Assessment

Swarm Intelligence Software Repository Management
Artificial Immune Systems Mobile Software Development
Dempster-Shafer Theory Software Risk Analysis & Modelling
Chaos Theory Configuration Management
Multi-valued Logic Component-Based Software Development
Ensemble Techniques Cloud Computing
Hybrid Approaches Web Engineering
  Search-Based Software Engineering

Papers should not exceed 10 pages in length and must be formatted according to the LNCS Springer publication style found here. In addition, papers should be submitted either in Microsoft Word or PDF format via email to one of the Workshop Chairs.

Each paper will reviewed by at least 2 academic referees. Papers reporting industrial applications will be reviewed by at least 1 industrial referee.

Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop (approx. 20 minutes allocated time) and will be published in the Proceedings of the main event.

The papers of the workshop will be also considered for potential selection for publication in special issues of the journals "Artificial Intelligence Review", "Engineering Intelligent Systems" and "Fuzzy Sets and Systems".

Note that at least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and attend the workshop to present the paper.

Registration fees and benefits for the workshops' participants are exactly identical with the ones of the main AIAI 2012 event.
