Doctoral Camp 2016

Doctoral Camp 2016 Picture

Every year our research group organizes a doctoral camp. During 2-3 intensive days every doctoral candidate presents her current research activities and discusses the PhD. progress with the professor, the members of the group and 1-2 guests. As in every camp, there are also several side discussions and social events.

This year’s doctoral camp took place from 15th to 17th June 2016 in a Swedish house near a beautiful lake by Malente. Together with our guest Prof. Nicole Novielli, the MAST research group (Prof. Maalej and ten of his Ph.D. students) intensively discussed its ongoing projects on topics including Analytics, Software Documentation, Data-Driven Requirements Engineering, and Global and Collaborative Development. Besides the insightful discussions, our group has further grown together during socializing events such as BBQs, cooking, canoe trips as well as fun sessions and various sports activities. The following pictures give an impression of the three productive and rewarding days.

Prof. Maalej gave an invited talk on „Mining User Reviews in the App Store“ as a part of The 36th CREST Open Workshop  (COW36) at the University College London.

The topic of the workshop was App Store Mining.  App stores provide a rich source of information for software engineering research, including technical information such as the app binaries, releases and updates as well as business information such as customer reviews, pricing, and popularity. This workshop will bring together software engineering researchers from all over the world to discuss and develop the emerging research agenda in App Store Analysis.

Internationally recognized researchers researchers in the field participated in the workshop including Prof. Andreas Zeller, Prof. Hark Harmann, Prof. Ahmad Hassan, and others. From MOBIS, Christoph Stanik also attended the workshop and participated in the discussions. The agenda and the complete list of attendants is available on the workshop website.

The workshop is part of the CREST Open Workshop (COW) program, which started in 2009 and has so far attracted 548 different attendees from 218 different institutions spread over 42 countries. An archive of talks including slides and videos will be available on the workshop website soon. The workshop was also accompanied by a live blogging by Dr Black.

MOBIS says goodbye to 2013

2014

2013 – Year Nr. 1 in MOBIS life – is now over! We would like to thank the MOBIS team and everybody who helped us in making 2013 a very successful year. After the first release of our website in February 2013 we have had over 10.000 visits and about 5000 visitors from all over the world — far more that we expected. Thank you for your interest in our research and teaching activities! We have grown throughout the year and our very young research group now includes 14 members: 9 research assistants (and Ph.D. candidates), 3 students assistants, one admin, and the group head Prof. Maalej. Moreover, we had 5 visiting researchers from Canada, US, Egypt, and Germany. Overall, in 2013 we published 7 peer-reviewed papers at international conferences and journals and co-edited 2 books one on Requirements Knowledge and the other on Recommendation Systems in Software Engineering. We co-organized 3 international events where we brought together researchers and practitioners to discuss emerging topics on Mobile Services and Software Engineering. We also won two awards. Our group head Prof. Dr. Walid Maalej was honored as “The Early Stage Scientist of the Year” across all sciences in Germany and Rebecca Tiarks received the pro exellentia scholarship for women in technology and natural sciences. Last but not least, our team designed and taught 3 new courses, amongst others the 2 renowned M-Lab courses, where students worked together with real companies on real projects. Some success stories are captured in movies in our YouTube channel. 

Most importantly, we had a lot of fun! While working on tough problems, we had many vivid (sometime long) discussions. We also were on exciting trips where we met interesting people from all over the world.

Of course, we still have many tasks, which are still open and several challenges in research and teaching, which we plan to tackle in 2014. Just to mention two: the MOBIS team is currently working on 5 research proposals and developing 2 new lectures for master students. One thing is clear: 2014 will be as busy as 2013.

We wish all our team members, our students, our partners, collaborators, and colleagues ALL the best for 2014! Looking forward for new challenges, productive time, and lots of fun!

The MOBIS Team
