Technical Track

CSMR 2012 will feature 10 technical research paper sessions in the field of software maintenance and reengineering. Furthermore, it will offer sessions about Early Research Achievements, Industrial Case Studies, Tool Demonstrations, Doctoral Symposium and EU R&D projects funded by the EU or by national grants of European countries.

Research papers describe original and significant work in the research and practice of software maintenance and reengineering, including theoretical results, case studies, empirical research and experiments.
