Vision Papers

The emphasis of these will be on long-term challenges and opportunities in empirical software engineering research that are outside of current mainstream topics of the field. Unlike the other submissions, vision papers should not consider incremental improvements or evaluations of current practices but propose ingenious ways to extend the applicability of techniques in empirical software engineering and/or challenge the existing explicit or implicit assumptions in this field. The goal of vision papers is to describe how empirical software engineering research and practice will look at least ten years from now.
