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 4th Workshop on Mining Unstructured Data (MUD 2014) 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.
MUD 2014 is a full-day workshop and will include a keynote by Dr. Christian Bird (Microsoft Research, Redmond, USA) , two hands-on tutorials, paper presentations, and more!
The workshop is co-located with the 30th International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution (ICSME 2014) and will take place in Victoria (BC, Canada) in the fantastic Fairmont Empress Hotel.
