The keynote speeach entitled “Singularity
” by Prof. Michele Lanza was given at the 9th IEEE Working Conference on Software Visualization (VISSOFT 2021). 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.

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 to turn into reality what only a few years ago would have seemed something for a distant future: providing software developers with an artificial assistant able to interact with them in an intelligent and proactive way, being aware of the specifics of software development, and becoming a sort of “real” member of the development team.

Prof. Gabriele Bavota and Prof. Michele Lanza are among the recipients of the latest Strategic Japanese-Swiss Science and Technology Program (SJSSTP) Grants, the research funds awarded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). The chosen project “SENSOR – SENsible SOftware Refactoring” aims to improve code maintainability while considering the specific context in which the refactorings are recommended, without sacrificing other high-priority non-functional requirements. This is a joint research project with Prof. Yasutaka Kamei and Prof. Naoyasu Ubayashi from Kyushu University, Japan.
