Call For Papers

Traceability of Emerging Forms of Software Engineering (TEFSE 2011)
will bring together researchers and practitioners to examine the
challenges of recovering and maintaining traceability for the myriad
forms of software engineering artifacts, ranging from user needs to
models to source code. The workshop is structured around a series of
research challenges that were identified in the 2007 editions and are
available on the web-site of the Center of Excellence for Software

The objective of the 6th edition of TEFSE 2011 is to build on the work
the traceability research community has completed in identifying the
open traceability challenges. In particular, it is intended to be a
working event focused on discussing the main problems related to
software artifact traceability and propose possible solutions for such
problems. Moreover, the workshop also aims to identify key issues
concerning the importance of maintaining the traceability information
during software development, to further improve the dialogue between
academia and industry and to facilitate technology transfer.

We invite submissions of papers in any areas related to the themes and
goals of the workshop in the following categories:

- Research papers presenting traceability solutions, which are novel
or significantly improving existing solutions (7 pages in the ACM SIG
proceedings style)
- Position papers describing early work addressing a specific
traceability problem or proposing new ideas (4 pages in the ACM SIG
proceedings style)

Papers must describe original work that is not being considered for
publication or already published at other forums. Accepted papers will
be published in the ICSE workshop proceedings volume and appear in the
ACM Digital Library. It is required that at least one author for each
accepted paper registers to the workshop *and attends* it to present
the paper.

Papers shall be submitted in PDF through the TEFSE 2011 EasyChair
submission system:

The 6th International Workshop on Traceability in Emerging Forms of
Software Engineering will host a traceability challenge. The TEFSE
Traceability Challenge brings together researchers and practitioners
who are interested in applying, comparing, and challenging their
traceability tools and approaches on three small/medium size artifact
repositories containing different types of artifacts. The main goals
of the traceability challenge is to (i) help researchers compare their
results with each other and (ii) form a benchmark for the traceability

The main task to be perfumed in the context of this challenge will be
to find interesting insights related to traceability challenges by
analyzing three different software repositories. In particular,
participants can analyze the software repositories in order to compare
different traceability recovery approaches, experiment new link
visualization techniques, or propose approaches to extract the link
semantic. The complete list of traceability challenges can be found
here (
A jury will evaluate the traceability insights and identify the
champion taking into
account several parameters, such as originality and usefulness.
