The KESE Memorial Book

In late 2015 we (Greg and Joachim) decided to make a KESE book. The project finally took of in 2016.

The primary objective of this edited book is to gather and present research results of researchers and practitioners from fields of KE and SE. This includes, but is by no means restricted to the topics presented in the original KESE workshop series. Moreover the books endeavors to promote the use of KE techniques in SE problems, where significant benefits can be derived from their use. The general goal is to show how the KE techniques can provide practical solutions in SE issues. Further interest is on the influence of SE methods and tools on the practical design of KBS within KE. The intention is to give ample space for presenting important achievements and research results as well as share knowledge about practical experiences and systems. The mission of this book is promoting the cross-fertilization of KE methods in SE and vice versa.
