I submitted two talk proposals two the 2015 European Open Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering: EOSESE’2015. I am happy that both were accepted for presentation.
Naming the Pain in Requirements Engineering: A Survey Design and German Results
In the first talk, I present our NaPiRE initiative about a bi-yearly, globally distributed survey on the state of the practice and contemporary problems in requirements engineering. The talk will mainly describe the design and first results from the initial German run published in an Information and Software Technology paper. But, as we analyse right now the results of the second run (with data from 10 countries), I will also preview some of those findings.
Links between the Personalities, Styles and Performance in Computer Programming
The second talk is based on a paper that a guest researcher from Iran worked on while she was visiting my group. Zahra Karima did a great job in designing and conducting a correlational study relating the personality, programming styles and programming performance of students. We found some statistically significant relations between specific personality traits and programming styles. You can read in detail about it in the preprint of our paper to be published in the Journal of Software and Systems.
This is joint work with Zahra Karimi, Ahmad Baraani-Dastjerdi and Nasser Ghasem-Aghaee.
