Call for Papers:

2nd Edition of the Workshop on Natural Language Processing Advancements for
Software Engineering (NLPaSE) co-located with the 28th Asia Pacific
Software Engineering Conference (APSEC) 2021 calls for submission of
position papers, experience reports, and research papers. We are looking
for contributions that enhance the knowledge towards NLP and their
applications in Software Engineering and contribute to the workshop goals.
We also encourage contributions that highlight challenges faced by the
industry professionals while applying NLP techniques for
generating/translating/processing the software artefacts.

Scientific areas of interest include:


   Requirements analysis, elicitation, and tracing.

   Automation and tool support.

   Generating Software Artefacts by applying NLP techniques (e.g., domain
   models, entities, test information, test cases, etc.)

   Bug report mining and analysis.

   Test automation.

   Functional and non-functional requirements categorisation.

   Information extraction (abstraction identification, feature extraction).

   Test information and test case generation.

   Text mining.

   Systematic Reviews (SLR, SMS).

   Natural Language is a Programming Language.

   Generation of test oracles using NLP.

   Generating code from natural-language specifications.

   Software reuse.

   Software evolution.

Submission Categories:

NLPaSE is looking for three kinds of contributions:


   Research Papers, including case studies, report on original research
   results on the use of NLP in the Software Engineering domain.

   Experience Reports describing experiences in the use of NLP, challenges,
   and lessons learned in the Software Engineering domain.

   Position Papers sharing the author’s insights or proposing an original
   idea or an opinion on NLP Advancements for Software Engineering.

Submitted papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to
another journal or conference. Submissions will be reviewed by the workshop
Program Committee.

Page Limits (including figures, references, and appendices):


      Research Papers & Experience Reports: maximum of eight pages

      Position Papers: maximum of four pages
