“Building Software Engineering Body of Knowledge with Knowledge Engineering”

Prof. Kalinowski
Local: FPLF 13º andar
Data/Horário: 12 de novembro de 2014, 16:00 – 18:00

Apresentação 1: “Building Empirical Software Engineering Bodies of
Knowledge with Systematic Knowledge Engineering”

[Context] Empirical software engineering (EMSE) researchers conduct
systematic literature reviews (SLRs) to build bodies of knowledge
(BoKs). Unfortunately, valuable knowledge collected in the SLR process
is publicly available only to a limited extent, which considerably slows
down building BoKs incrementally. [Objective] This presentation
introduces the Systematic Knowledge Engineering (SKE) process to support
building up BoKs from empirical studies efficiently. [Method] SKE is
based on the SLR process and on Knowledge Engineering (KE) practices to
provide a Knowledge Base (KB) with semantic technologies that enable
reusing intermediate data extraction results and querying of empirical
evidence. We evaluated SKE by building a software inspection EMSE BoK KB
from knowledge acquired by controlled experiments. We elicited relevant
queries from EMSE researchers and systematically integrated information
from 30 representative research papers into the KB. [Results] The
resulting KB was effective in answering the queries, enabling knowledge
reuse for analyses beyond the results from the SLR process. [Conclusion]
SKE showed promising results in the software inspection context and
should be evaluated in other contexts for building EMSE BoKs faster.

Apresentação 2: “Towards a Semantic Knowledge Base on Threats to
Validity and Control Actions in Controlled Experiments”

[Context] Experiment planners need to be aware of relevant Threats to
Validity (TTVs), so they can devise effective control actions or accept
the risk. [Objective] The aim of this presentation is to introduce a TTV
knowledge base (KB) that supports experiment planners in identifying
relevant TTVs in their research context and actions to control these
TTVs. [Method] We identified requirements, designed and populated a TTV
KB with data extracted during a systematic review: 63 TTVs and 149
control actions from 206 peer-reviewed published software engineering
experiments. We conducted an initial proof of concept on the feasibility
of using the TTV KB and analyzed its content. [Results] The proof of
concept and content analysis provided indications that experiment
planners can benefit from an extensible TTV KB for identifying relevant
TTVs and control actions in their specific context. [Conclusions] The
TTV KB should be further evaluated and evolved in a variety of software
engineering contexts.

Palestra sexta-feira 7/nov às 13h na 511 RDC: “Towards a more human-centred informatics?” Prof. Liam Bannon, Univ. Limerick, Irlanda

Palestrante: Prof. Liam Bannon — University of Limerick and Aarhus University
Título: Towards a more human-centred informatics?
Data e hora: sexta-feira 7/nov às 13h
Local: 511 RDC

Resumo:
In this talk I will argue that the field of Computing should not solely be about the study of computability (Mathematics) or the building of applications (Engineering). Most of the software we design today is used by people, and so an understanding of people’s activities and practices is also in my view a necessary aspect of education in the computing field. Strangely, this is still the exception rather than the rule in most Computing departments worldwide. My argument is not simply that students should receive a few lectures on the creation of user interfaces, or learn some heuristics about Human Computer Interaction (HCI), or speculate about the future on an optional course on “computers and society” (although such brief introductions are better than nothing!), but rather that they explore what it means to create artefacts that fit into, and enhance, people’s everyday lives and activities. In this talk, I’ll take up this challenge, and show how historically, these issues have surfaced in debates about the field of Computer Science over the years, without ever becoming mainstream.

Bio
Liam Bannon is Honorary Professor in Human Computer Interaction at Aarhus University, Denmark, and Emeritus Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems at the University of Limerick, Ireland. Currently, he is a Visiting Research Professor at UFRJ. In recent years, he has also held Visiting Professor positions in several Universities in France, Spain and Italy. His research interests range over the gamut of human-technology relations, including cognitive ergonomics, human-computer interaction, computer-supported cooperative work, computer-supported collaborative learning, new media, interaction design, and social dimensions of new technologies. He has been involved for many years in the elaboration of more human-centred approaches to the design of complex ICT systems (Bannon, 2011). He was a founding editor of CSCW: The Journal of Collaborative Computing and is serving, or has served, on the editorial boards of several other international journals in HCI, CSCW, CSCL, and Design. He has served on numerous International Programme Committees for Conferences in these areas, and also served as a member of the International Panel of Reviewers for many scientific research projects and organizations wordwide. Liam was recognized as a Pioneer in the HCI field by IFIP in 2010. Liam holds an Honorary Doctorate from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), in Stockholm, Sweden. Liam is a Fellow of the Irish Ergonomics Society, was first Chair of the ACM SigCHI Irish Chapter, and is Irish representative on IFIP TC13 (Human-Computer Interaction). In 2013 he was jointly awarded (with Kjeld Schmidt) the EUSSET-IISI Lifetime Achievement Award for contributions to HCI & CSCW.

Uma biologia teórica inspirado na teoria da computabilidade

Prof. Gregory Chaitin [1,2] (ministrado em português)

Abstract: We add a new (valid) strong propositional substitution rule
(SUB) : $\frac{\Gamma}{\theta(\Gamma)}$ for any $\theta \in
\mbox{Hom}(V~AR \to F0R)$ and consider dag-like cut-free sequent calculus
SEQ$_{sub}$ with (SUB) (for brevity classical, but also keep
intuitionistic one in mind). We formulate for SEQ$_{sub}$ the Hauptsatz
with Compression. We ask if SEQ$_{sub}$ admits better/faster speed-up of
proof compression than analogous calculus with weaker substitution for
$\theta \in \mbox{Hom}(V~AR \to LIT)$?
