2nd International Workshop on Software Analytics (SWAN 2016)


Keynote Speakers

Tim Menzies (Ph.D., UNSW) is a full Professor in CS at North Carolina State University where he teaches software engineering and automated software engineering. His research relates to synergies between human and artificial intelligence, with particular application to data mining for software engineering. He is the author of over 230 referred publications; and is one of the 100 most cited authors in software engineering out of over 80,000 researchers (http://goo.gl/BnFJs). In his career, he has been a lead researcher on projects for NSF, NIJ, DoD, NASA, USDA, as well as joint research work with private companies. Prof. Menzies is the co-founder of the PROMISE conference series devoted to reproducible experiments in software engineering (http://openscience.us/repo). He is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, Empirical Software Engineering, the Information Sand Software Technology journal, the Automated Software Engineering Journal, the Software Quality Journal, and the Big Data Research Journal. In 2015, he served as co-chair for the ICSE'15 NIER track. In 2016, he serves as co-general chair of ICMSE'16. In 2017 he will serve as PC co-chair for SBSE'17. For more, visit his home page.
Wolfram Schulte is a former director of engineering in Microsoft's Cloud and Enterprise Division, Redmond, USA, where he founded in 2012 the Tools for Software Engineers (TSE) team. TSE’s mission is to improve Microsoft’s engineering velocity, more specifically minimize the cycle time of the inner loop from code review, via build, code-analysis and test, to deployment. TSE tools and services are meanwhile used by more than thirty-five thousand developers within Microsoft. Wolfram retired from Microsoft on 9/20/2016.  


Before Wolfram ventured into product groups, Wolfram lead the Research in Software Engineering (RiSE) group, at Microsoft Research, Redmond, USA. While at RiSE Wolfram co-authored papers and build prototypes for many tools that Microsoft ships, including Linq, CodeContracts, Task Parallel Library, IntelliTest (Pex) and SpecExplorer. Wolfram also co-developed the experimental program verifiers  Spec# and VCC.


Before joining MSR in 1999, Wolfram worked at the University of Ulm (1993-1999, habilitation), at sd&m, a German software company (1992-1993), and at the Technical University Berlin (1987-1992, PhD).
