International Workshop on Replication in Empirical Software Engineering Research

Main focus is experimental evaluation studies and/or evaluation methodology

The primary goal of this workshop is to raise the perceived value of replication work by creating both recognition for, and awareness of, replication studies. The workshop aims to encourage revisiting results, especially those that have long been accepted but which in fact have only weak empirical support. In addition, the workshop seeks to identify and suggest solutions for recurring practical problems in selecting, designing, and performing replication studies. The workshop also seeks to advance the state of research reporting techniques and tool development and deployment, with a focus on making experiments repeatable and tools more reusable.
