The first edition of the IEEE Working Conference on Software Visualization VISSOFT follows six editions of the IEEE International Workshop on Visualizing Software for Understanding and Analysis (VISSOFT) and five editions of the ACM Symposium on Software Visualization (SOFTVIS). In 2013, for the first time, the two events will be united in a single top-tier conference on software visualization.

Aims and Scope

Software visualization is a broad research area encompassing techniques that assist in a range of software engineering activities, such as specification, design, programming, testing, maintenance, reverse engineering and reengineering. Encompassed techniques cover the development and evaluation of methods for extracting data from software systems and graphical and interaction techniques for representing the structure, behavior, and evolution of software.

In this working conference, we focus on visualization techniques that draw on aspects of software maintenance and evolution, program comprehension, reverse engineering, and reengineering, i.e., how visualization helps programmers to understand, analyze, and evolve software. We aim to gather tool developers, users and researchers from both software engineering and information visualization to discuss theoretical foundations, algorithms, techniques, tools, and applications related to software visualization.
