Xie Has Multiple Publications Accepted at ICSE 2012
For the third time since 2009, Dr. Tao Xie, associate professor of computer science at NC State University, has had two research-track papers and two tutorials selected for presentation at the 34th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2012), the premier conference in software engineering. The conference takes place June 2-9, 2012 in Zurich, Switzerland.
Xie’s two papers have been accepted for presentation in the technical program and for publication in the conference proceedings. His paper, “Inferring Method Specifications from Natural Language API Descriptions” was co-authored by his NC State Ph.D. students Rahul Pandita and Xusheng Xiao; international collaborator Dr. Hao Zhong from the Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China; Stephen Oney from Carnegie Mellon University; and Dr. Amit Paradkar from IBM Research. His paper “Performance Debugging in the Large via Mining Millions of Stack Traces” was co-authored by his international collaborators from Microsoft Research Asia, Beijing, China: Shi Han, Dr. Yingnong Dang, Song Ge, and Dr. Dongmei Zhang.
Additionally, Xie’s two tutorials, “Mining Software Engineering Data” (co-presented with his collaborator Ahmed E. Hassan from Queen’s University, Canada) and “Software Analytics in Practice”, a mini tutorial of the Software Engineering in Practice track (co-presented with his industrial collaborator Dr. Dongmei Zhang from Microsoft Research Asia) have also been accepted at ICSE 2012.
Last year, Xie had one research-track paper and one tutorial accepted for presentation at ICSE 2011. In 2010 and 2009, Xie had two research-track papers and two tutorials accepted for presentation at the ICSE Conferences for two years in a row. Xie also had papers accepted for presentation at ICSE Conferences in 2008, 2007 and 2005.
ICSE is the premier international event for software engineering. It provides a world-class forum for software engineering professionals from industry, government and academia to hear about and discuss the latest developments, trends and innovations in software engineering. ICSE encompasses a conference program, technical tutorials and workshops, demonstrations, and exhibitions along with social functions to provide an ideal opportunity to learn and network with like-minded colleagues from around the world.
Dr. Xie’s work represented in the ICSE 2012 papers is supported in part by grants from the National Science Foundation and a grant from Army Research Office.
