Title: The Role of Empirical Studies in Software Engineering
Speaker: Dietmar Pfahl, University of Oslo
This presentation gives a brief introduction into empirical research and discusses its importance for software engineering. Recently published studies are used to illustrate how empirical research helps analyse the effectiveness and efficiency of software engineering tools and techniques, and how empirical studies contribute to the design of new techniques and tools and the development of supporting theories.
