The second International Workshop on Software Mining (SoftwareMining-2013) calls for research papers reporting original investigation results, real-world applications and system development experience in all aspects of software mining. The topics of the SoftwareMining-2013 submissions may roughly fall into four major aspects, including 1) Data mining foundations for software analytics, 2) Software mining techniques, 2) Mining practices on various types of software-related data, and 3) Applications of data mining to facilitate specialized tasks in software engineering. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

A. Data mining foundations for software analytics
A1. Emerging machine learning methods for software analytics
A2. Predictive / descriptive modeling techniques for software analytics
A3. Novel frequent pattern mining techniques for software analytics
A4. Evolutionary computing techniques for software analytics
B. Software mining techniques
B1. Software mining models and techniques
B2. Robust and highly scalable algorithms for mining large scale software system
B3. Understanding and visualizing software mining results
B4. Noise-tolerant software mining
B5. Privacy preserving software mining
C. Mining specific software data
C1. Mining software specifications
C2. Mining source code
C3. Mining execution traces and logs
C4. Mining change patterns and trends
C5. Mining bug and crash reports
C6. Mining natural language artifacts in software data
C7. Mining developer-related artifacts
D. Software mining in specialized tasks
D1. Mining for software defect identification and characterization
D2. Mining for software testing and debugging
D3. Mining for cost/effort estimation
D4. Mining for software development and reuse
D5. Mining for resource allocation
D6. Mining for process control

Publication and Paper Submission:

Each submission should be no more than 8 pages (8 pages for regular papers, 4 papers for short papers and position papers) total in length, consisting of title, authors' names, postal and email addresses, an up to 200-words abstract, up to 5 keywords, and a body with all contents, figures, tables, and references. The format should be kept the same as the ASE main track format. All manuscripts must be submitted electronically in a single PDF file using the conference management tool. Please make sure that any special fonts used are included in the submitted documents. Detailed instructions will be available soon on the SoftwareMining-2015 website (

For accepted papers, authors are required to prepare their final submissions for the workshop proceedings according to the reviewers' suggestions.
