Xie Has Two Papers and Two Tutorials Accepted at ICSE 2009

Dr. Tao Xie, assistant professor of computer science at NC State University, has had two papers and two tutorials selected for presentation at the 31st International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2009).  The conference takes place May 16-24, 2009 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Xie’s two papers, “Mining Exception-Handling Rules as Conditional Association Rules” (co-authored with his NC State University Ph.D. Student Suresh Thummalapenta) and “Locating Need-to Translate Constant Strings for Software Internationalization” (co-authored with his international collaborators at Peking University, China:  Xiaoyin Wang, Lu Zhang, Hong Mei and Jiasu Sun) have been accepted for presentation in the technical program and for publication in the conference proceedings. 

Having two papers accepted for this prestigious conference is exceptional given that only 50 of 405 submissions were accepted overall, an acceptance rate of approximately 12 percent. 

Xie also had papers accepted for presentation at ICSE 2008, ICSE 2007 and ICSE 2005.

In addition, Xie’s two tutorials, “Parameterized Unit Testing:  Principles, Techniques, and Applications in Practice” (co-presented with his industrial collaborators Nikolai Tillmann, Jonathan de Halleux, and Wolfram Schulte at Microsoft Research) and “Mining Software Engineering Data” (co-presented with his collaborator Ahmed E. Hassan from Queen’s University, Canada) have also been accepted at ICSE 2009.

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.
