A Laboratory for Experimental Software Engineering to Evaluate Online Static Analyses and Program Understanding Techniques that Support Program Maintenance and Development
Yann-Gaël Guéhéneuc and Stefan Monnier propose an exciting project on the development of advanced program analyses techniques and on the experimental validation of the developed techniques, laws, and theories. We believe that their project has the potential to foster major advancements in research fields such as type-based security, reverse engineering, program analysis, and experimental software engineering. Their project shall place the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research (DIRO) at University of Montreal (UdeM) on an equal footing with the most prestigious international research organisations in the fields of static analyses, program understanding, and experimental software engineering. In particular, the field of experimental software engineering is underdeveloped in Canada, despite the interesting research performed, for example, by Lionel Briand's group at Carleton University and Gail Murphy's group at university of British Columbia. The requested infrastructure of experiment-stations equipped with eye-tracking systems (and the additional support equipment) is essential to realise a qualitative jump in the field of experimental software engineering as well as in the fields of static analyses and program understanding.
