This is a half-day workshop at WCRE'13 on 15 Oct 2013.


The 3rd Workshop on Mining Unstructured Data (MUD 2013) aims to stimulate discussion between researchers in the field about addressing the challenges posed by mining unstructured software data, to encourage cross-fertilization from different research domains, including NLP, IR, Machine Learning, etc. and to document and advance the state of the art of MUD.

The workshop includes a keynote, paper presentations, and a fishbowl discussion / panel on MUD challenges and its future.

This is half-day workshop at WCRE'13 on 16 Oct 2013.


Many mature research fields have a list of acknowledged open problems that are being slowly addressed by the community — the field of software language engineering (SLE) has not yet produced one. The first workshop on Open and Original Problems in Software Language Engineering (OOPSLE) is meant to expose the hidden expertise in addressing unsolvable or unsolved problems which commonly remain unpublished. OOPSLE will serve as a think tank in selecting candidates for the open problem list, as well as any other kinds of unconventional questions and definitions that do not necessarily have clear answers or solutions. We also aim to formulate possible challenges for future organisation, in the style of LDTA Tool Challenge, LWC and PLT Games.
