More precisely, we work on many ways to better support software development at different levels, from programming languages to development environments, including tools to support program understanding (debuggers, profilers, visualizers). We also study the practice of programming, through mining software repositories as well as user studies.
Where do we publish? Here is the PLEIAD Trail (major conferences only) since 2010:
- 2013: AOSD (2), DLS, MSR, WCRE (proc.), IWPSE (proc.), VISSOFT (2)
- 2012: AOSD (proc.), ECOOP, FSE, ICPC, ICSE (2), OOPSLA
- 2011: AOSD, ECOOP (3), FSE, ICPC (2), ICSE (2), MODELS, MSR, OOPSLA, IWPSE (proc.)
- 2010: AOSD (2), ASE, GPCE, ICSE, MSR (2), SAC, SC, SCAM, TOOLS
We also publish in the following journals: ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology, Automated Software Engineering, Computer Languages, Systems and Structures; Concurrency and Computation-Practice and Experience; Empirical Software Engineering; IEEE Software; IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering; Personal and Ubiquitous Computing; Science of Computer Programming; Software-Practice and Experience.
With whom do we collaborate? Here is a list of PLEIAD scientific collaborations (projects, publications, visits) since 2010: Brown University (USA), Carnegie Mellon University (USA), INRIA Nantes and Lille (France), Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany), Universidad de La Plata (Argentina), University of Bern (Switzerland), University of British Columbia (Canada), University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany), University of Lugano (Switzerland), Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium)
