Xie Has Papers and Tutorials Accepted at ICSE for Second Year

For the second year in a row, Dr. Tao Xie, assistant professor of computer science at NC State University, has had two research-track papers and two tutorials selected for presentation at the 32nd International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2010), the premier conference in software engineering.  The conference takes place May 2-8, 2010 in Cape Town, South Africa.

Xie’s two papers, “Mining API Mapping for Language Migration” (co-authored with his NC State University Ph.D. student Suresh Thummalapenta and international collaborators: Drs. Hao Zhong and Qing Wang from the Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China, and Dr. Lu Zhang from Peking University, China), and “Is Operator-Based Mutant Selection Superior to Random Mutant Selection?” (co-authored with his international collaborators from Peking University, China:  Dr. Lu Zhang, Shan-Shan Hou, Jun-Jue Hu, and Dr. Hong Mei) have been accepted for presentation in the technical program and for publication in the conference proceedings.

Last year, Xie had two research-track papers and two tutorials accepted for presentation at the 31st International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2009).  Having two papers accepted for this prestigious conference, especially two years in a row, is exceptional given that only 52 of 380 submissions to ICSE 2010 were accepted overall, an acceptance rate of 13.7 percent.

Besides having two papers accepted at ICSE 2010 and ICSE 2009, Xie also had papers accepted for presentation at ICSE Conferences in 2008, 2007 and 2005.

Additionally, Xie’s two tutorials, “Parameterized Unit Testing: Theory and Practice” (co-presented with his industrial collaborators Nikolai Tillmann, and Jonathan de Halleux from 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 2010.

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 2010 papers is supported in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation and a grant from Army Research Office.
