Call for papers: 21st IEEE International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and Manipulation (SCAM)


SCAM aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on theory, techniques and applications which concern analysis and/or manipulation of the source code of computer systems. For the purpose of clarity ‘source code’ is taken to mean any fully executable description of a software system. It is therefore so-construed as to include machine code, very high level languages and executable graphical representations of systems. The term ‘analysis’ is taken to mean any automated or semi auto...

Emotions and Perceived Productivity of Software Developers at the Workplace


Emotions are known to impact cognitive skills, thus influencing job performance. This is also true for software development, which requires creativity and problem-solving abilities. In this work conducted by Daniela Girardi, Filippo Lanubile and Nicole Novielli from University of Bari (Italy) together with Alexander Serebrenik (Eindhoven University of Technology), we report the results of a field study involving professional developers from five different companies in the Netherlands. We prov...
