The 52nd CREST Open Workshop - Predictive Models in Software Engineering: Measures, Models and Benchmarks

Date: 27th and 28th March 2017

Venue: G01, 66-72 Gower Street, University College London, WC1E 6EA 

Overview:

Predictive modelling is the practice of exploiting information from past event in order to determine patterns and predict future outcomes and trends with an acceptable level of reliability. Applied to Software Engineering (SE), predictive modelling is used to estimate software project cost, risk, and quality, but also to analyse historical data in order to better understand software processes, products, and customers. 

This workshop will bring together world leading researchers and practitioners interested in measures, models, and benchmarks for predictive systems to discuss the latest achievements in various SE tasks and to explore enhanced applications of predictive modelling for adaptive software products and processes.
