Xie Has Multiple Papers Accepted at FSE 2012

Dr. Tao Xie, associate professor of computer science at NC State University, has had three research-track papers selected for presentation at the 20th ACM SIGSOFT Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (FSE 2012), ACM SIGSOFT's flagship conference in software engineering.  The conference selected 35 papers out of the 201 submissions for inclusion in the FSE 2012 technical program, with a 17% acceptance ratio.  The conference will take place November 10-17, 2012 in Research Triangle Park, NC.
Xie’s three papers have been accepted for presentation in the technical program and for publication in the conference proceedings.  His paper, “Automated Extraction of Security Policies from Natural-Language Software Documents” was co-authored by his NC State Ph.D. student Xusheng Xiao, his former NC State Ph.D. student (now a researcher at IBM Research India) Dr. Suresh Thummalapenta, and Dr. Amit Paradkar from IBM T.J. Watson Research Center.  His paper “How Do Developers Understand Code Changes? An Exploratory Study in Industry” was co-authored by his international collaborators from Microsoft Research Asia, Beijing, China:  Dr. Yingnong Dang and Dr. Dongmei Zhang along with his international collaborators from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, China: Yida Tao and Dr. Sunghun Kim.  His paper “Automating Presentation Changes in Dynamic Web Applications via Collaborative Hybrid Analysis” was co-authored by his international collaborators from Peking University, Beijing, China:  Dr. Xiaoyin Wang, Dr. Lu Zhang, Dr. Yingfei Xiong, and Dr. Hong Mei.
FSE is one of the premier forums for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent ideas, innovations, trends, and experiences in the field of software engineering. The distinctive features of FSE are an emphasis on the foundations of the field, the relatively small scale of the event, and the intense intellectual engagement among participants.
Dr. Xie’s work represented in the FSE 2012 papers is supported in part by grants from the National Science Foundation and a grant from Army Research Office.
