Early Research Achievements Track

The Early Research Achievements (ERA) Track aims at providing researchers with a forum for discussing novel research ideas in early stages of development. The topics of interest for this track are the same as the main research track, but we aim at creating a stimulating atmosphere where researchers can present and get early feedback on promising work that has not yet been fully evaluated.

Session 1 – Repository Mining

Wednesday, March 6, 2013, from 11:00 to 12:30

  • Zoltán Tóth, Gábor Novák, Rudolf Ferenc and István Siket.
    Using Version Control History to Follow the Changes of Source Code Elements

  • Ferdian Thung, Tegawendé Bissyandé, David Lo and Lingxiao Jiang.
