Call for Book Chapters: Software Engineering with Large Language Models (SE with LLMs) | (Muhammed Waseem)

Aims of the call
The aim of this call for book chapters is to establish a foundation that fosters research and development initiatives to produce publishable, applicable results and solutions that are focused on LLMs for SE. The chapters can provide a platform to discuss active and emerging challenges, design and development of solutions to address those challenges and identify areas of futuristic research to develop emerging and next-generation of LLMs for SE processes and practices.

Potential contributors and audience
Authors could be experts in the field of software engineering and AI, while readers may include software engineers, AI researchers, and technology enthusiasts. Academic researchers focused on investigating the state-of-the-art, emerging and futuristic challenges, novel solutions, experiences, opinions and other relevant aspects of research and development of LLMs for SE. Industrial practitioners who may be interested in notations, tools, frameworks and patterns for the engineering and development and application of LLMs in an industrial context.

Objectives and implications
The objective is to provide a comprehensive guide on how to use LLMs-based bots for streamlining software engineering processes. The implications include reshaping software engineering practices and potentially revolutionizing the industry by employing AI-driven automation. This call aims to find answers to some fundamental questions such as,
- How LLMs can support SE processes?
- What existing tools, technologies, and architectures are available to support LLM-driven SE?
- Which systems, domains, and applications can benefit from the applications of LLMs in SE context?
