To be held in CENTERIS 2015 – International Conference on ENTERprise Information Systems
Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal, 7-9 October 2015
AIS Affiliated Conference



The growing field of Search-Based Software Engineering (SBSE) addresses optimization problems to build optimized software systems throughout all development stages. Planning, project management, design, testing, deployment, maintenance, etc., and quality attributes such as speed, cost, reliability, availability, flexibility, scalability, responsiveness, adaptation, maintainability, testing, etc., have high potential of optimization, specially due to the increasing complexity of software systems development, deployment and maintenance. This research domain reflects itself the wide and diverse applications of software itself. The huge space of options and decisions required throughout all software development stages and the variety of objectives at stake, originated the raise of the Search-Based Software Engineering research field.
Due to specific and highly customized software optimization goals, software engineering optimization is generally devoted to improving some objectives at the cost of others, providing the best trade-offs for system design or operation. Several modern tools are available to support Search-Based Software Engineering approaches.
IWoSBSE'15 intends to foster a growing interest for Search-Based Software Engineering by gathering researchers with different backgrounds and perspectives on software engineering and optimization.
