Our new paper on default method refactoring has been accepted for inclusion in the proceedings of the International Conference on Software Engineering, to be held in Buenos Aires in 2017! The conference accepted a total of 68 submissions out of 398 reviewed (17%) and 415 submitted (16%).
Graduate Research Assistant Position in Programming Languages and Software Engineering
I am currently seeking a graduate student interested in programming languages and software engineering research to commence at the Fall 2017 semester. Potential research topics include (static/dynamic) program analysis and/or transformation (e.g., refactoring) with a focus on helping to maintain and/or evolve large and complex existing software systems. Potential topics also include automated bug finding approaches and software security w.r.t. software evolution and/or component composition. The successful candidate will be expected to work on projects that normally yield open source developer tool research prototypes, typically plug-ins to popular IDEs, build systems, or static analyzers. More information can be found on on the main supervisor’s webpage.
Of particular interest are students interested in applying to the City University of New York – CUNY’s Graduate Center Ph.D. program in Computer Science concurrently with the research assistantship, see below.
The Ph.D. Program application deadline is January 1, 2016. Please see below for additional details on applying.
I’ll be giving a talk on improving interface modularity in legacy Java software through automated refactoring at the CST Colloquium next month.
The skeletal implementation pattern is a software design pattern consisting of defining an abstract class that provides a partial interface implementation. However, since Java allows only single cl…
I am pleased to announce that our paper on improving interface modularity in legacy Java software through automated refactoring has been accepted at the International Workshop on Language Modularity À La Mode (LaMOD’16), to be held at the International Conference on Software Modularity (MODULARITY’16) later next month in Málaga, Spain. Congrats, @oamoore and @hmasuhara!
I am pleased to announce that I will be serving on the Program Committee for the 2016 International Workshop on Modularity Across the System Stack (MASS’16).
I am happy to announce that I have been invited to serve on the program committee (PC) for the symposium on Software Engineering Technology and Applications (SETA) of the 40th IEEE Computer Society International Conference on Computers, Software & Applications (COMPSAC’16)! Note that abstracts for conference papers are due November 30, 2015 and full papers due December 11. Good luck!
I am pleased to announce that our workshop proposal, the 2016 International Workshop on Language Modularity (LaMod’16), has been accepted for the 15th International Conference on Software Modularity (MODULARITY’16). I will be one of three organizers. More details, including a CfP, to follow.

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:
- Find a faculty mentor doing research. A list of such faculty mentors can be found here.
- Have the mentor agree to take you on in their lab for a research project (spanning 2 months for the summer).
- Create a research project with your mentor or work on a project your mentor is currently working on.
- Fill out and submit your application.
- Send in supporting documents (scanned) to firstname.lastname@example.org and CC email@example.com: 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!
