SANER is the premier event on the theory and practice of recovering information from existing software and systems. The event explores innovative methods to extract the many kinds of information that can be recovered from software, software engineering documents, and systems artifacts, and examines innovative ways of using this information in system renewal and program understanding.
SANER promotes discussion and interaction among researchers and practitioners about the development of maintainable systems, and the improvement, evolution, migration, and reengineering of existing systems. The venue also explores innovative methods of extraction for the many kinds of information of interest to software developers and examines innovative ways of using this information in system renewal and program understanding.
SANER will feature technical research paper sessions, workshops, an early research achievements track, an industry paper track, a tool demonstration track, and for the first time a dedicated track on negative results in software analysis, evolution and reengineering.
This 25th edition of the IEEE International Conference on Software Analysis, Evolution and Reengineering will be held at the University of Molise in Campobasso, March 20-23, 2018. A special issue based on selection of best papers from SANER 2018 will be published in Springer’s Journal of Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE).
