This track of ICSE showcases the newest and most exciting ideas in software engineering. Prof. Devanbu’s paper describes a new project led by UC Davis, together with collaborators from CMU and Iowa State, that seeks to exploit statistical regularities in software, using methods drawn from Computational Linguistics. This project is funded by a large ($2,000,000) grant from the National Science Foundation.
