A large amount of unstructured data is available in software artifacts, such as, documentation, developer discussions, source code, customer support requests, etc. This data contains important information that could be useful for developers in the context of several software engineering tasks. However, due to the large amount of unstructured data available today in software projects, the task of mining it can be challenging.
The 3rd Workshop on Mining Unstructured Data (MUD 2013) aims to stimulate discussion between researchers in the field about addressing the challenges posed by mining unstructured software data, to encourage cross-fertilization from different research domains, including NLP, IR, Machine Learning, etc. and to document and advance the state of the art of MUD.
The workshop is a full-day workshop and will include a keynote, paper presentations, and a fishbowl discussion on MUD challenges and its future.
The workshop is co-located with the 20th Working Conference on Reverse Engineering (WCRE 2013) and will be hosted by the University of Koblenz-Landau, Germany. The workshop is free to attend with a WCRE registration.
