You have been getting reports on the terrible flooding in the west side of Japan. Fortunately, the area close to the IWESEP 2018 venue including Nara, Kyoto, and Osaka has suffered little damage from it.

Thanks for worrying about us and kind messages. See you this December at Nara.

Welcome to IWESEP 2018

The 9th International Workshop on Empirical Software Engineering in Practice (IWESEP2018) will be held in Nara, Japan, December 4, 2018.

The objective of the 9th International Workshop on Empirical Software Engineering in Practice (IWESEP) is to foster the development of the area by providing a forum where researchers and practitioners can report on and discuss new research results and applications in the area of empirical software engineering. The workshop encourages the exchange of ideas within the international community so as to be able to understand, from an empirical viewpoint, the strengths and weaknesses of technology in use and new technologies, with the expectation of furthering the more generic field of software engineering.

The workshop focuses on the processes, design and structure of empirical studies as well as the results of specific studies. These studies may be on original or replicated studies, varying from controlled experiments to field studies, from quantitative to qualitative.
