Title: Learning from errors: my academic career
Abstract: I started to work on research topics related to software engineering around 2000, when by chance I tried to measure the size of Debian. That changed my career for ever. In this talk, I will explain how that totally random fact lead me to join the (then nascent) mining software repositories community, to join forces with some colleagues, to run some large research projects, to build tools, to write papers, to collaborate with companies and co-found one, and to do a lot of paperware. But overall, I will show how during all the time, I was committing a lot of errors, which now I think helped me to advance in my career. In summary, this will be a talk about a maybe unusual research career, but one that kept me happy and alive (and still is keeping me like that) for a long time.
|10:00 - 10:30||Coffee Break|

Keynote #2: prof. Alessandra Gorla
Title:Mining Android apps: The dark side of the story
Abstract:In this presentation I will tell you about my research on Android applications. Beside the positive results, which are published on papers, in this talk I will mostly focus on the many things that went wrong and the lessons that I learnt.

Closing Panel - Lessons Learned for PhD
Panel chairs: Juan de Lara, Serge Demeyer Panelists: dr. Dario Di Nucci, dr. Simone Romano, dr. Matúš Sulír, dr. Kevin Moran
After the closing, the organization will take us by bus to the ICSME Pre-reception (see https://icsme2018.github.io/social/Prereception.html ), which is at IMDEA software, in the outskirts of Madrid. This session will include a poster session where all participants will have the opportunity to present.
We opted for a format that maximizes on discussions & feedback, however at the expense of preparation and presentations time. Here are the rules for the format
This is a format which has been used in other events. It is a format which typically results in vivid discussions during the presentations which is a sure boon. More importantly, for the authors, it is a splendid opportunity to hear what another researcher in the field has understood from the paper.
Opponents. We have invited a number of senior researchers (post-docs and professors) to serve as "opponents". These persons will have read one paper in detail and will discuss both the merits of the presented research, as well as ways to improve it.
Keynote speakers. We invited two speakers to give a keynote address. Both are seasoned researchers having supervised numerous ph.d. students over the years. They promised us to share some personal experience on how to manage your PhD.
There is a poster session scheduled right after the symposium during the ICSME Pre-reception. We expect all position papers to present a poster there. Poster size should be DIN A0 or smaller; no other constraints. Since we move to the reception right after the event, make sure to bring the posters along.
