Xie Receives Award to Study Fault Localization

Dr. Tao Xie, associate professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $124,999 by the University of Texas Arlington via NIST to support his research proposal titled “Fault Localization Based on Combinatorial Testing.”

The award will run from September 1, 2010 through August 31, 2013.


Abstract:  Testing and fault localization are two essential activities performed in virtually every engineering project. These activities can be very laborious and time-consuming. How to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of these two activities has been a major focus in many areas of engineering research. This project will develop effective and efficient fault localization techniques based on combinatorial testing, and adapt these techniques to produce domain-specific techniques applicable to different domains.
