Paper accepted at SANER 2017 Industry Track

We are happy to announce that our joint paper with AUDI Electronic Ventures and the TU Graz on Performance Tuning for Automotive Software Fault Prediction was accepted for publication at the SANER 2017 Industry Track. The paper analyzes the effects of different sampling strategies on the results of fault prediction for automotive software. The findings shows that the choice of sampling strategy as well as the sampling rates should be tailored to the algorithm and that no "standard" solution exists. Moreover, the sampling can even be used to tune the trade-off between recall and precision of findings. 

Second winner of "Verständliche Wissenschaft"

Our group member Patrick Harms took part in the competition "Verständliche Wissenschaft" organized by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Centre for Materials and Costal Research. During this event, 8 researchers who finished their PhD in 2014 or 2015 presented their thesis topics in a way that is understandable for the broader public. Patrick became second best in the competition and we congratulate him for that. Further infos are available here.

All examination dates fixed

For all our current courses, the examination dates are now fixed. They are as follows:

Paper accepted at ICST 2017

We are happy to announce that our paper Are there any Unit Tests? An Empirical Study on Unit Testing in Open Source Python Projects  was accepted at the 10th International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST 2017). The paper presents an empirical study on open source python projects to determine to what extent developers use unit tests in their development, and in what ways. The conclusions from the study are that while developers think they are developing a lot of unit tests, they are not actually doing so, and in fact, most projects have very few unit tests. Furthermore it shows, that mocking does not have much of an influence on the number of unit tests.

Best Presentation Award at the UCAAT 2016

At the User Conference on Advanced Automated Testing (UCAAT) 2016 in Budapest, our group members Patrick Harms and Jens Grabowski won the Best Presentation Award. Their presentation was about Experiences with Automated Field Usability Testing Using Generated Task Models and included in addition to a brief overview of Patrick's PhD thesis on Automated Field Usability Evaluation Using Generated Task Trees a proposal on how this approach could be integrated into a Software or Platform as a Service.

Paper accepted at EUMAS 2016

We are happy to announce that our paper Agent-based simulation for software development processes was accepted at the 14th European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (EUMAS 2016). EUMAS is an European forum at which researchers, and those interested in activities relating to research in the area of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems could meet and discuss results.

Paper accepted for Springer's Empirical Software Engineering Journal

We are happy to announce that our paper Global vs. local models for cross-project defect prediction is accepted for publication in the Empirical Software Engineering journal. The paper presents a large study on the applicability of local models to the problem of cross-project defect prediction. You can access the full text of the paper online.

Prof. Grabowski elected as treasurer of the SDL Forum Society

Our group leader Prof. Dr. Jens Grabowski has been elected as the treasurer of the SDL Forum Society. Being one of the long term members, Prof. Grabowski contributed to the societies goals of promoting the ITU Specification and Description Language (SDL) over the last years. He, furthermore, coorganized the 9th System Analysis and Modelling (SAM) conference 2016, which was held in Saint Malo, France, at the beginning of October this year and which is one of the two biannual events organized by the society. With his new tasks, he takes over one of the most important positions in the society.
