Position papers, of no more than 4 pages, are invited. Deadline: Aug 1, 2016.

Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques and tools have become very powerful and are applicable in many domains. In the context of Software Engineering (SE), there are many promising opportunities for the application of NLP to be used to improve SE theory and practice. Recently, investigations have begun to unravel the extent to which large code corpora that can be retrieved from GitHub, StackOverflow, etc., are amenable to analysis using statistical NLP models and algorithms, so that the revolutionary advances in speech recognitions, translation, comprehension, etc. can be applied in SE.

This workshop will bring together an international group of researchers in Statistical NLP, Programming Languages, Software Engineering and related fields for an intensive period of discussion and presentation of results in the area. We invite a range of researchers with both NLP and SE backgrounds to come together, discuss their research, establish datasets, tasks, and baselines, and generally help the field build momentum.

Thanks to funding from NSF, a limited amount of Travel support is available, for academics. Priority, as per sponsor advice, will be given to US-based NLP Researchers (those who normally publish in NLP venues), students, and people from under-represented groups.
