David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science professor Reid Holmes and PhD candidate Laura Inozemtseva have won an Association for Computing Machinery Distinguished Paper Award for their paper Are Mutants a Valid Substitute for Real Faults in Software Testing? at the 22nd ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on Foundations of Software Engineering.
The paper was co-authored by René Just, Darioush Jalali, and Michael Ernst of the University of Washington and Gordon Fraser of the University of Sheffield.
This is the second award won by Inozemtseva for her work in the area of software architecture. Previously, she was awarded a distinguished paper at the International Conference on Software Engineering for her paper Coverage Is Not Strongly Correlated with Test Suite Effectiveness.
FSE is an internationally renowned forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, and challenges in software engineering.
