Empirical research is essential for developing a theory of software development, and – subsequently – for transforming the art of software development into engineering. In particular the latter point deals with providing evidence on the efficiency and effectiveness of tools and techniques in different application contexts. An application context is defined, firstly, by organizational aspects such as process organization, resource allocation, developer team size and quality, management rules, etc., and secondly, by the set of all other tools and techniques applied in a development project.
