Joint Replication Project
Participate in this year's joint replication project! Simply visit the experiment portal (link below), conduct the guided experiment (framework provided), and write-up the results. Individual results will be compiled into a major, distributed, joint replication. Additionally, all reports will be published in full and authors will share their work in a joint session at the workshop.
This year's joint replication will be of a controlled experiment first performed in 1997 by Prechelt, Unger, Tichy, Brössler, and Votta, investigating the impact that design patterns have on software maintenance. This work, refered to as PatMain, was originally conducted in a paper-based format (no actual programming and testing) with 27 professionals and published in TSE in 2001.
PatMain was then replicated by researchers at Simula with 44 paid professional subjects from various consultancy companies. That replication, which was was published in EMSE in 2004, was nearly identical in its setup, except that the subjects worked in a real programming environment.
Experiment Web Portal and Other Details
Please see PatMain Replication Info for details on how the joint replication will take place and how you can participate.
And if you intend to participate, please tell us that you exist!
