HICSS Minitrack

We have successfully applied for a minitrack on next year’s Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences.

Dr. Stefan Witten and Prof. Dr. Andreas Rausch of the institute chair the track in collaboration with Prof. Sebastian Herold of Karlstad University. See the call for Paper below for details!


Call for Paper:

AI-based Methods and Applications for Software Engineering Minitrack

On the HICSS - Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences

January 3-6, 2024, Hawaii


The software engineering community observes that a number of software engineering tasks can be formulated as data analysis (learning) tasks and thus can be supported, for example, with AI-based methods and algorithms. This is the motivation for the research field of AI for software engineering which has developed driven by the rapid increase in size and complexity of software systems and, in consequence, of software engineering tasks.

We invite submissions of original, high-quality research papers on the topic of Artificial Intelligence for Software Engineering for our minitrack. The minitrack focuses on the practical and theoretical aspects of using artificial intelligence in software engineering practices.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • AI-assisted software development processes and methodologies
  • AI-supported requirements engineering
  • AI-supported software architecture and design techniques
  • Automated software testing and verification using AI
  • AI for software evolution and maintenance
  • AI for program comprehension, debugging and bug fixing
  • Automated software generation using AI
  • AI-assisted reengineering and refactoring of software
  • AI-supported deployment and operating of software (AIOps)
  • Explainability and transparency in AI-assisted software engineering
  • Deployment and integration of AI technologies in software engineering processes
  • Security and privacy aspects of AI-assisted software engineering
  • User experience and usability aspects of AI-assisted software engineering
  • Tools and frameworks for AI-assisted software engineering
  • Ethical, societal, and organizational implications of AI in software engineering
  • Empirical studies and experience reports of AI in software engineering

Papers should follow the standard HICSS format and should be no longer than 10 pages in length, including all figures, tables, and references. All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee

Selected papers will be provided with a Fast Track opportunity to the a Special Issue of the Electronics Journal “Advances and Challenges in Model- and Data-based Software and Systems Engineering for Complex Systems” published by MDPI in an open Access format. (additional publications fees will be required)

We look forward to your contributions and to an exciting minitrack on Artificial Intelligence for Software Engineering!
