The SEmotion workshop focuses on topics at the intersection of affective computing and software engineering.
Affective states such as personality traits, attitudes, moods, and emotions play a crucial role for developers performance as well as for the success of their product. For example, several software engineering tasks include acceptance and negotiation activities in which emotions play a crucial role—e.g., discussion about issues found on GitHub, or request for help on StackOverflow.
SEmotion is now at its fourth edition and has created an international community for researchers and practitioners in the area to present and discuss their work in progress regarding empirical studies, theoretical models, and tools to support affective computing in software engineering.
As for the previous three editions, SEmotion will be co-located with ICSE, a premier conference for software engineering research, in Montreal, Canada. This edition will be co organized by Davide Fucci from MAST, together with Bonita Sharif from the University of Nebraska in USA, and Giuseppe DeStefanis from Brunel Univesity in UK.
The SEmotion workshop series started in 2016 when ICSE took place in Austin, Texas and was co-organized by prof. Walid Maalej. Since then, researchers from MAST have contributed to the workshop programme and presented their work to this community.
