Empirical Software Engineering


We are investigating ways to help researchers to perform empirical studies in general. We first start thinking about evaluating Aspect-Oriented Software Development techniques, mainly associated with software evolution. At this time we are also investigating Software Product Lines. Besides the processes, methods and techniques that might help/guide the researchers, we also plan to provide a considerable amount of information to be used. Examples of such information are: applications to be used at those studies, experimental plans of executed studies, and their results. We aim to have a body of knowledge allowing studies to co-relate their results.
