Keynote Title: Empirical Research in Software Clone Management


In this presentation, we review empirical research in software clone management: how widespread the collection of empirical evidence related to software clones is in our community, what kind of empirical methods have been used so far, and what we could do better regarding empirical evaluations of our claims, methods, and tools. This presentation comes with a disclaimer: the presenter does not have all the answers; the presenter's goal is rather to raise awareness and to provide points to ponder on this important subject.
