Individual Research Cooperation between Dr. Michael Pradel and Beijing Institute of Technolgy, China
Dr. Michael Pradel (CYSEC PI and Head of the Software Lab) and his research group work in collaboration with Prof. Hui Liu at the Beijing Institute of Technology, China. The collaboration focuses on program analyses that exploit identifier names in source code. For example, these analyses enable reliable and secure code creation by making code recommendations and improve code maintenance by suggesting refactorings. A selection of this joint work was presented in a research paper at the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), which is the premier venue for Software Engineering. The work has been supported by EC SPRIDE, and is supported by CRISP, and the Emmy Noether project ConcSys.
