Zheng Wins ACM Student Research Competition

Photo of ZhengCongratulations to Jiang Zheng, a computer science doctoral student and research assistant at NC State University, who took first place in the “graduate category” of the ACM Student Research Competition, held on March 8-10, 2007 at SIGCSE 2007 in Covington, Kentucky.
He is now eligible to participate in the Grand Finals of the ACM Student Research Competition.
His research on Regression Testing COTS-based Applications focuses on reducing the regression testing required for COTS-based applications when components change and source code is not available.  A process with supporting tools for regression test selection for COTS-based applications was evolved. The process is an integration of a static binary code change identification process and a code-based RTS process. The results of industrial case studies indicate this process can reduce the required number of regression tests by as much as 100% in some cases.
The ACM Student Research Competition is internationally recognized venue for undergraduate and graduate students to:
  • Share research
  • Exchange ideas and gain new insights
  • Meet and talk with academic and industry luminaries
  • Understand the possible practical applications of their research
  • Perfect their communication skills
  • Receive rewards and recognition
Zheng is advised by Dr. Laurie Williams, associate professor of computer science. His research is supported by a research grant from ABB Corporate Research.
