Abstract

BASILI, Victor Robert. The past, present, and future of experimental software engineering. J. Braz. Comp. Soc. [online]. 2006, vol.12, n.3, pp.7-12. ISSN 0104-6500.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/BF03194492.

This paper gives a 40 year overview of the evolution of experimental software engineering, from the past to the future, from a personal perspective. My hypothesis is that my work followed the evolution of the field. I use my own experiences and thoughts as a barometer of how the field has changed and present some opinions about where we need to go.

Keywords : empirical software engineering; experimentation; context variables; replication; meta-analysis; big science.
