    INES researcher Márcio Ribeiro won the ACM SIGPLAN John Vlissides Award at the SPLASH 2010 conference (formerly OOPSLA), held in Reno, NV, USA on October 2010. The award is presented annually to a doctoral student participating in the OOPSLA Doctoral Symposium showing significant promise in applied software research. The best PhD proposal was presented by Márcio, which competed with students from world’s premier universities. The presented proposal consists of providing modularity for features in software product lines. The approach uses interfaces that emerge on demand and during a maintenance task to warn developers about dependencies among features, so that the developer of a feature might not break another one which might be under somebody else responsibility.

  • ICSE 2011 – Software by Design

    ICSE 2011

    ICSE is the premier software engineering conference, providing a forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, and concerns in the field of software engineering. The conference features the presentation of research papers, workshops, research demonstrations, and updates on the use of advanced software engineering techniques in industry.

    The ICSE 2011 theme of Software by Design reflects the widely-held view that the most important ingredient in ensuring a software system’s long-term success is its design. While other concepts, concerns, activities, artifacts, and processes are important to the success of a software engineering project, it is the quality of a system’s design that provides the critical ingredient. Highlighting design as the conference’s theme is meant to focus attention upon design’s centrality, to encourage reflection on design experience, to inspire new designers, and to encourage development of new design techniques.
