We are hosting theA�Hamburg Meeting onA�Recommendation Systems in Software Engineering A�(RSSE Hamburg Meeting) on April 25th and 26th 2013.
During this closed event 25 top researchers from all over the world will present and discuss the state-of-the-art on Recommendation Systems in Software Engineering.A�
RecommendationA�systems support decision making by helping their users navigate through large information spaces. Many activities in software engineering require searching, understanding, and managing large amounts of highly-technical and inter-related information. With the growth of public and private data stores and the emergence of off-the-shelf data-mining technology, recommender systems have emerged that specifically target the unique challenges of navigating software engineering data. Martin P. Robillard, Walid Maalej, Robert J. Walker and Thomas Zimmermann have invited international experts that align with the theme of recommendations systems to contribute to an edited book to be published by Springer in 2013. This book will collect state-of-the-art knowledge on the basic techniques required to mine software engineering data to produce recommendations, on the effective ways to apply these techniques in various application domains, and on the approaches that can be employed to assess the value of recommendations in highly-technical domains.A�

After intensive iOS and Android tutorials held for the students last week, we had today the kickoff of the lighthouse teaching project M-Lab 2013. In total 20 students, 4 companies, and 5 instructors are participating in this project. This year we have the following iOS and Android projects:
- Capgemini Germany: Sales Support of High-End Financial Products
- I.C.H.N. GmbH: Community Assessment of Telecommunication Service Quality
- Presentec GmbH: Social and Sailing Navigation
- Volkswagen AG: Remote Control for an in-car Infotainment System
After a short introduction to the course and teaching goals by the professor, the four customers presented their problem statements and expectations to the students. The students selected their preferred projects by filling an online survey. At the end we had a small get together party with drinks and pizza! Also 7 guests came to the kickoff today.
Now the students are ready to use techniques and methods of Software Engineering and Mobile Services and work together on their projects and deliver the products in 3 months.
Looking forward for great projects!
The detailed timetable for the seminars can be found on the website.
On April, 8th. 2013 Prof. Walid Maalej and Prof. Ulrike von Luxburg continued with a long tradition at the University Hamburg. The new professors introduced themselves in an open lecture, which took place at the Konrad Zuse HA�rsaal. While Ulrike talked about “Machine Learning Mysteries” Walid’s talk was about “Octoberfest Engineering: On the Socialness of Software” (see event details). About 100 people including other professors, scientific staff, students, and alumni attended the talks and came to the reception afterwards. The welcome present of the department was a captain’s cap as a symbol of the hamburg region (as shown on the photo).
