The SPLASH 2015 Student Volunteers program provides an opportunity for students from around the world to associate with some of the leading personalities in industry and research in the following areas: programming languages, object-oriented technology and software development. Student volunteers contribute to the smooth running of the conference by performing tasks such as: assisting with registration, providing information about the conference to attendees, assisting session organizers and monitoring sessions.


The ACM SIGPLAN conference onĀ Systems, Programming, Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity (SPLASH) which embraces all aspects of software construction and delivery to make it the premier conference at the intersection of programming, languages, and software engineering. SPLASH 2015 will take placeĀ October 25-30, 2015Ā in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States.


The 38th InternationalĀ Conference on Software EngineeringĀ Austin, TX, May 14 – 22, 2016

ICSE ā€” the premier conference in software engineering sponsored by ACM and IEEE CS ā€” is coming to Austin for a second time in May 14 – 22, 2016. There, the top minds in software engineering research and practice will convene for a week of inspirational talks, demos and conversation. A quarter-century after the Texas state capital first hosted ICSE, Austin has become a hub for technology, entrepreneurship, music, outdoor recreation and nightlife. ICSE 2016 will be located in the lovely Austin Arboretum Area ā€” known as ā€œnew Austinā€ ā€” at the start of the Texas hill country and at the peak of the Texas wildflower season. What better setting could there be for flourishing ideas?

Please mark your calendars. Contribute your results and ideas. Then plan to join us to make the 38th ICSE one for the record books since, as the saying goes, ā€œEverything is bigger in Texas!ā€

Talk at College of Staten Island, City University of New York

Today, I gave a talk at the Computer Science DepartmentĀ of theĀ College of Staten Island, City University of New YorkĀ on Java 8, ongoing refactoring work, and the programming languages and software engineering research fields in general. The talk was part of the Research Experience for Undergraduates program, which is supportedĀ by both the NSF and DoD.
