16th International Workshop on Software Clones
7 October 2022, Limassol, Cyprus
In conjunction with ICSME 2022
Software clones are often a result of copying and pasting as an act of ad-hoc reuse by programmers. This was often seen at the project-level, however, due to emerging technology stacks, developers and researchers are paying attention to the ecosystem-level. Hence, the software cloning community is extending target topics to include various types of software clones at the ecosystem level, with examples such as project cloning, clones in ecosystems, project similarity and so on.
Clones are not limited to only source code, and can occur at the software system (from simple statement sequences to blocks, methods, classes, source files, subsystems, models, architectures, etc) to the entire software ecosystem (inter-dependent software systems, libraries), and occur in all software artifacts (source code, binaries, configuration build files, models, requirements or architecture documentation, etc ). Software clone research is of high relevance for software engineering research and practice today.
A partial list of the topics is as follows (this list is by no means exhaustive, and it is a goal of the workshop to further extend it):
