MSR 2020
Mon 29 - Tue 30 June 2020
co-located with ICSE 2020

This year educational track will feature three kinds of submissions. In addition to tutorials and collection of educational resources launched last year, this year we also introduce educational posters.

  • Tutorials: the track chairs will invite several researchers to address topics of broad interest for community.
  • Shared educational resources. The goal of this activity is to create a hub of community educational collaboration and curation of educational resources relevant to Mining Software Repositories. Educational resources can be lessons, MOOCs, tools, educational datasets, tutorials, extractors, sources of SE data, assignment descriptions, etc. Current collection of educational resources is here
  • Educational posters. We solicit two-page descriptions of educational resources. Accepted submissions will be included in the proceedings; authors will be invited to present their work as a poster.

For further details on the calls for shared educational resources and educational posters, please see the tab Call for contributions.

Call for contributions

This year educational track will feature three kinds of submissions. In addition to tutorials and collection of educational resources launched last year, this year we also introduce educational posters.

  • Tutorials: the track chairs will invite several researchers to address topics of broad interest for community.
  • Shared educational resources. The goal of this activity is to create a hub of community educational collaboration and curation of educational resources relevant to Mining Software Repositories. Educational resources can be lessons, MOOCs, tools, educational datasets, tutorials, extractors, sources of SE data, assignment descriptions, etc. Current collection of educational resources is here See the call below.
  • Educational posters. We solicit two-page descriptions of educational resources (see below). Accepted submissions will be included in the proceedings; authors will be invited to present their work as a poster.

Call for educational resources

We have a website/blog dedicated to MSR relevant Educational Resources. You can contribute anytime!

What are we looking for?

  • Links, resources, videos, virtual machines, texts that can be used to help teach MSR to all sorts of students: undergraduates, graduates, postdocs, professionals, professors, etc.
  • The contributed snippets should be relevant to the field of mining software repositories.
  • The contributed snippets do not need to be your own resources. They can be links to resources you think are useful for educating students about MSR related topics. Be sure to attribute and credit the creators of the resources you link to.

Please also check our contribution guidelines

Educational resources are not papers, will not be included in the proceedings or presented during the conference.

Call for educational posters

Educational poster submissions should describe educational resources made available to use by others. Educational resources can be lessons, MOOCs, tools, datasets, tutorials, extractors, sources of SE data, assignment descriptions, etc. Ideally, these resources should be of value to others in the community.

Submissions are expected to include:

  • a description of the resource,
  • if the artefact is a dataset please describe the methodology used to gather it and its provenance
  • a description of the context when this resource has been used: for what target audience has the resource been designed? has it been used as part of a larger course or summer school?
  • reflection on the past use of the educational resource: e.g., if the resource is an assignment, how did the students score on it? what kind of feedback did they provide?
  • ideas for the future use and improvement: e.g., would the same assignment be suited for other target audiences, e.g., undergrad students instead of graduate students, or non-CS-majors?

The educational resources covered by a poster should be

  • original, i.e., not been published elsewhere, under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration. The submission must also comply with the ACM plagiarism policy and procedures. The submission must also comply with the IEEE Policy on Authorship. To submit please use the EasyChair link.
  • made available at the time of submission of the paper for review, but will be considered confidential until publication of the paper. At latest upon publication of the paper the authors should archive data on preserved archives that can provide a digital object identifier (DOI) such as [zenodo.org], [figshare.com] or institutional preserved archives. In this way the data will become citable; DOI-based citation of the dataset should be included in the camera-ready version.

Submission

Submit your poster paper (maximum 2 pages, plus 1 additional page of references) to EasyChair on or before February 6, 2020. Submitted papers will undergo single-blind peer review. We opt for single-blind peer review (as opposed to the double-blind peer review of the main track) since description of the context is likely to disclose the authors’ identity. To make educational resources accessible and citable, we further encourage authors to attend to the FAIR rules, i.e. data should be: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. The submission must conform to the MSR Proceedings Formatting Guidelines.

Upon notification of acceptance, all authors of accepted papers will be asked to complete a Copyright form and will receive further instructions for preparing their camera ready versions. At least one author of each paper is expected to present the results at the MSR conference. All accepted contributions will be published in the conference electronic proceedings.

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM or IEEE Digital Libraries. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2020. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to the published work. Purchases of additional pages in the proceedings is not allowed.
