The paper entitled “Visualizing Software Systems as Cities” by Prof. Michele Lanza and REVEAL alumni (Dr. Richard Wettel) wins Most Influential Paper Award at the 8th IEEE Working Conference on Software Visualization (VISSOFT 2020).
The awarded paper was published at 2007 4th IEEE International Workshop on Visualizing Software for Understanding and Analysis. In the paper, the authors present a 3D visualization approach which gravitates around the city metaphor, i.e., an object-oriented software system is represented as a city that can be traversed and interacted with.
The VISSOFT IEEE Working Conference on Software Visualization continues the history of the ACM SOFTVIS Symposium on Software Visualization and the IEEE VISSOFT International Workshop on Visualizing Software for Understanding and Analysis. The conference focuses on visualization techniques that target aspects of software maintenance and evolution, program comprehension, reverse engineering, and reengineering, i.e., how visualization helps professionals to understand, analyze, test and evolve software.
