Empirical answers: keynote and deadline

The EAQSE workshop is devoted to Empirical Answers to Questions of Software Engineering. The deadline is looming. Just announced: Tom Zimmerman from Microsoft Research will deliver the keynote. Tom is uniquely qualified; he has performed unique studies of what people, particularly software engineering practitioners, expect from empirical research. See hereand there. Outstanding papers.

See also the list of candidate questions on the workshop site.

The background for the workshop is the observation, stated in two earlier articles in this blog (starting here), that empirical studies of software engineering have made tremendous progress over the past decades, and that it is important to move the focus to what is important for practicing software developers, not just what can be studied (the lamppost temptation).

As to the submissions: if anyone needs a little more time, write to the organizers, we should be able to accommodate a few more days (but only a few). The proceedings will be published (in LNCS) after the event,  so the focus for the meeting itself is on presentation of important ideas.
