The LSAMP program is now accepting applications for Spring 2016. Accepted students will receive up to $5000 to conduct research with a faculty mentor during the Spring 2016 semester and beyond. The deadline to apply is December 14, 2015. If you are interested in applying with myself as a faculty mentor, please complete my informational form. More information is listed below:

The LSAMP program is a NSF funded program that has the objective of increasing the numbers of minority students graduating with degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. The program does this by giving eligible students a stipend and training as they work alongside a CUNY faculty mentor on a research project.

Eligibility and application instructions can be found on the attached pdf file but I still wanted to go over some important steps:

  1. Find a faculty mentor doing research. A list of such faculty mentors can be found here.
  2. Have the mentor agree to take you on in their lab for a research project (spanning 2 months for the summer).
  3. Create a research project with your mentor or work on a project your mentor is currently working on.
  4. Fill out and submit your application.
  5. Send in supporting documents (scanned) to ampcc@ccny.cuny.edu and CC mbennett@citytech.cuny.edu: Updated Transcript, Resume, Birth certificate, Passport or Green Card, Social Security Card.

You will be notified via mail of acceptance.

Please Note: If are interested in applying but do not currently have a mentor, please submit the Phase I application and leave the mentor information and project details parts blank. Once you have confirmed a project mentor and project, they must email the LSAMP office with their project title, project description, mentor’s name, and mentor’s email address. The mentor will then be manually sent the Mentor Endorsement link.

The for applications for Spring 2016 is December 14, 2015. So please be swift!

If you have any other questions do not hesitate to contact Marvin Bennett,  NYCCT AMP Coordinator, mbennett@citytech.cuny.edu, P616, Thurs. 9am-5pm, V806 Weds. 9am-5pm, Phone: 718-260-5529, Fax: 718-260-5524.

Call for Applications: Emerging Scholars, Fall 2015

I am currently seeking students interested in becoming “emerging scholars” this Spring semester and who are interested in programming languages and/or software engineering research.

The research would involve static analysis and program transformation to help maintain existing software systems. The work is normally yields developer tools that are plug-ins to popular IDEs like Eclipse and NetBeans. More information can be found on my research page and, particularly, my software page, which has some examples of previous tools. I would be interested in continuing some work on a refactoring tool that is currently under development.

The application deadline is September 30. Please complete this form if you are interested in applying.

Deadline extended: CUNY Research Scholars Program (CRSP)

The CUNY Research Scholars Program (CRSP) application deadline has been extended to 9/21/2015! Please let me know if any associate-level students are interested in programming languages and software engineering research and are interested in applying with me as a mentor. More information may be found on the program guidelines and the application form. Please note that the program is only available to associate-level students.

New Student: Olivia Moore

I am pleased to announce that Olivia Moore has decided to join our research team. Olivia is a senior in the Computer Systems Technology Department, and she is interested in programming. Last summer, Olivia completed an internship at the DUMBO Startup Lab, under the Brooklyn Tech Triangle Internship Program, where she worked on several web-related projects.

Fraglight in the news!

8. Fraglight: Raffi Khatchadourian, Assistant Professor, City College of Technology, CUNY. It‚Äôs not a party if you don’t invite the computer scientists. Pointcut fragility is a problem in aspect-oriented programming; changes to the base code can lead to join points incorrectly falling in or out of the scope of pointcuts. Deciding which pointcuts have broken due to changes made to the base code can be a daunting task, especially in complex systems.‚ÄúFraglight helps developers change Aspect-Oriented programs by analyzing their code and correspondingly predicting which pointcuts, or queries over the program execution, break as a result of their changes, bringing these pointcuts to the developer‚Äôs attention,‚ÄĚ says Khatchadourian, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Systems Technology at New York City College of Technology, part of CUNY, who developed the project with a team of collaborators.
