Four papers co-authored by the SEART group have been accepted for publication at the 43rd International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2021):
The paper entitled "An Adaptive Search Budget Allocation Approach for Search-Based Test Case Generation" by S. Scalabrino, A. Mastropaolo, G. Bavota, and R. Oliveto will be published in ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology (TOSEM).
The paper entitled "Why Developers Refactor Source Code: A Mining-based Study" by J. Pantiuchina, F. Zampetti, S. Scalabrino, V. Piantadosi, R. Oliveto, G. Bavota, and M. Di Penta will be published in ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology (TOSEM).
Prof. Gabriele Bavota is among the recipients of the latest ERC Starting Grants, the research funds awarded by the European Research Council (ERC) on a highly competitive basis to the most promising young researchers active in Europe. Prof. Bavota was chosen for his project DEVINTA, which aims at providing software developers with an artificial assistant able to interact with them in an intelligent and proactive way.
The ERC Starting Grants are designed to support early-stage researchers who stand out for their potential. In the 2019 ERC Starting Grants call for proposals, 3106 applications were submitted, of which only 408 (about 13%) were accepted.
