EREMCIS 2017 Proceedings

Thank you for attending EREMCIS 2017, the First Student Symposium on Empirical Research Methods in Computer Sciences and Information Systems! The symposium was held on May 2, 2017, at room EL1, NTNU Gløshaugen.

EREMCIS is a new series of symposiums presenting the final student project results from the NTNU course IT3010 Research Methodology in Computer and Information Sciences. The course trains students in empirical research methods, in preparation of a master’s degree project. The papers presented in EREMCIS were planned by the students, and are based on research done by the students. The students have written, reviewed and revised the papers in a realistic academic research process.

As course teachers, EREMCIS 2017 organizers and chairs, we welcome you on behalf of the students, to listen to the presentations and to discuss the papers. We hope EREMCIS will contribute to a community of researcher-students at IDI who can step into future research positions both at NTNU and other places!

Elena Parmiggiani and Babak Farshchian.
