Carnegie Mellon Researcher is Program Co-Chair for 26th ASE 2011

Corina Pasareanu, Senior Systems Scientist at Carnegie Mellon University's Silicon Valley campus, will be the program Co-Chair for the 26th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE), November 6–11, 2011, Oread, Lawrence, Kansas. ASE brings together researchers and practitioners to share ideas on the foundations, techniques, tools and applications of automated software engineering. The program committee meeting was held in July at the NASA Ames Conference Center. The program committee selected 37 long papers and 56 short papers out of 358 submissions. In addition to the technical papers, ASE 2011 will include invited keynotes, tutorials, workshops, tool demonstrations and a doctoral symposium; one tutorial and one workshop will be dedicated to Java PathFinder, RSE's verification tool-set.

Dr. Pasareanu’s work is with the Robust Software Engineering group at NASA Ames Research Center, where she serves as a senior researcher. Her research interests are in software verification. She is developing, extending and maintaining Symbolic PathFinder, a symbolic execution tool for Java bytecode. She is also working on compositional analysis techniques for probabilistic systems and on modeling and analysis software with multiple Statechart formalisms.

“Software engineering is concerned with the analysis, design, implementation, testing, and maintenance of large software systems. Automated software engineering focuses on how to automate or partially automate these tasks to achieve significant improvements in quality and productivity,” explained Corina. “ASE is one of the premier conferences in the field of software engineering, that places particular emphasis on automated software engineering tasks. It is a privilege to be able to serve as co-chair this year.”
