Mining software repositories and search based software engineering typically benefit from tools aiding text processing, interaction data collection, evolutionary computation, testing, code analysis, and repository analysis. The corresponding data come from data collections, source and binary code repositories, fault and failure datasets, and process details. Key issues in research in this area concern the following of best practices and reproducibility. We will also see key readings and challenges for the future.

This is work jointly performed with Tse-Hsun (Peter) Chen, Yasutaka Kamei, Masanari Kondo, Neil Walkinshaw, Xin Xia, and Shin Yoo based on an NII Shonan Meeting working group formed to examine this topic.
