This volume looks at the obvious trend in the computing evolution from studies of student programmers and toward studies of real programmers performing real programming tasks. The percentage of student and professional programmers in the studies reported in papers presented at ESP 1 and ESP 5 has nearly flip-flopped. There is now an emphasis on the practical application of the research results both in industry and in academia. The papers and posters of this workshop include a range of programming language paradigms beyond the procedural paradigm: functional, logic, visual, object oriented and concurrent programming. This appears to be an indication of the maturation of the field. No longer is it a question of whether to study programmers, but more a question of which apsects of the porgramming that make it an important area of study.

This volume studies programmers to gain insights to facilitate improved productivity and quality software. The chapters cover a range of topics including cognitive models of programming; measuring program complexity; the effects of program style and structure on program comprehension, production and maintenance; documentation; the effects of control structures and data structures on program comprehension, production and maintenance; evaluations of program design and construction methodologies; teaching strategies; and assessment of programmer abilities.

The papers in this volume represent the work presented at the 1996 workshop. One of the goals of the workshop, in 1986, was to bring together the small and disparate group of researchers who were wrestling with difficult and complex issues of programming. The text includes papers, posters, tutorials and panels used at the 1996 workshop.

This volume contains the papers presented at the second workshop on Empirical Studies of Programmers. They represent a variety of approaches and topics covering the research in this area. All the chapters present research that bears on programmers. Together with the first volume edited by Elliot Soloway and Sitharama Iyengar, these chapters contribute to a growing knowledge base about how programmers go about their task and how they progress from novice to expert levels.
