Huzefa Kagdi from EECS honored with IEEE ICPC 2013 Most Influential Paper Award
The IEEE International Conference on Program Comprehension (ICPC) recently notified that a paper coauthored by Dr. Huzefa Kagdi was voted as the Most Influential Paper from 2003. Program and Steering Committee members selected this paper from all those published at IWPC 2003 through an anonymous ballot. The award was formally presented on May 20-21, 2013 in San Francisco, CA. ICPC is the premier conference in the area of program comprehension.
The paper entitled "An XML-Based Lightweight C++ Fact Extractor" introduced src2srcml - A selective parsing based source code to srcML translation tool, which enabled an efficient, robust, and scalable foundation for lightweight static analysis. It has been adopted in academic research and commercial applications, across the world, for a wide range of tasks in software engineering. src2srcml is available under both open source (GPL) and proprietary licenses, through a technology transfer company founded by the authors. This research was a joint work with Dr. Michael Collard at The University of Akron and Dr. Jonathan Maletic at Kent State University.
