General information:
The BSR winter school on “Big Software on the Run – Where Software meet Data” is organized by the three Dutch technical universities (TU/e, TU Delft, and UT). This cross-disciplinary school gives you the unique opportunity to meet some of the world’s leading researchers working on software/data analytics and process mining related problems and discuss your research with other participants. The winter school is aimed at university researchers including PhD students and postdoctoral-fellows as well as professionals from industry who are interested in discussing and developing new ideas combining approaches from multiple software process analytics related disciplines. The school is organized in the context of the 3TU.BSR (“Big Software on the Run”, initiative and will run from Sunday 23rd to Friday 28th October, 2016. The venue is Hotel de Paasberg in Ede, the Netherlands.

Scope and goal:
Software systems have grown increasingly large and complex in today’s highly interconnected world. Communication, production, healthcare, transportation and education all increasingly rely on “Big Software”. This increasing dependence makes reliable software systems a major concern and stresses the need for effective prediction of software failures. Since software is evolving and operates in a highly dynamic and changing environment, it becomes difficult if not impossible to anticipate all problems at design-time.

Within the BSR research program ( that has started in 2015, we propose to shift the main focus from a priori software design to a posteriori software analytics, thereby exploiting the large amounts of event data generated by today's systems. The core idea is to study software systems in vivo, i.e., at runtime and in their natural habitat. We would like to understand the actual behavior of software, to detect and predict future violations (e.g. deviations from some normative model, privacy and security constraints, etc.) and to provide insightful recommendations for software engineering related tasks (e.g. development, testing, debugging, configuration, etc.). The school will cover software analytics related topics (including: process mining, data visualization, and software analytics in the large). Lectures are combined with hands-on sessions that will help you to understand theoretical principles and how to apply them.
