Experimental Software Engineering (ESE) imports the experimental paradigm, successfully applied in many branches of science, to software engineering (SE). ESE aims to make software construction a predictable activity by exploring the relations between software production processes and products. Advancement of the experimental paradigm in SE entails more than just applying experimental design and statistical data analysis, it also calls for the development of a methodology (either from scratch or adapted from other disciplines) based on the general principles of experimentalism. The primary motivation of this research is to adapt a particular aspect of the experimental paradigm ?replication? to SE experimentation. ESE researchers have conducted several replications of experiments. But, there is still debate about what is the best way to go about replication. Some questions raised in this discussion are: Should the baseline experiment materials be reused? Should the replication be carried out independently or is form of communication among experimenters and replicators acceptable? What elements of the experiment structure can be changed for the experiment to still be considered a replication? This course examines the concept of replication for adoption in ESE from a theoretical and practical viewpoint. It addresses the following objectives: 1) study the concept of replication in different scientific disciplines to gain a better understanding of its importation into ESE, and; 2) develop a typology of replications useful for understanding what different types of replication can be conducted in ESE and what experimental results verification purpose each replication type serves.
