Bye bye #ICSE2023! It was great to meet up with everyone.

My PhD students at @ICSEconf! If you meet Tural Mammadov, Marius Smytzek, Leon Bettscheider , or Fengmin "Paul" Zhu, ask them about their research, what it’s like to work with me at @CISPA - and how I made them wear these T-shirts. jobs.cispa.saarland/

Gigantic congratulations to Prof. Dr. @avanhatt, who successfully defended today!!!! She has done a truly awesome series of super-practical applications of formal methods to compilers and things—stuff people will be using and building on for a long time. 🎉👏🦀

How bad is it if I turn down an ARC assessment assignment? I do not have sufficient expertise in the area they have assigned a project for me to review (I have expertise in the very broad area, but that is because the area is really broad).

We have opened a call for an Associate Professor in Software Engineering at Chalmers in Sweden!


If you have any questions or are interested in applying, please drop me an email or PM. (email is better, since I am not checking social media regularly these days)

Our university requires me to guarantee that no questions from previous 3 years have been reused in the final examination question paper.

Unfortunately, I also have to compose at least 4 question papers for the final examination (a main and replacement exam) x (in-person and remote). I have already exhausted all questions I can pose to students, and am wondering what to ask next year. #newfaculty #newfacultyproblems

Pet peeve: In a number of research papers, I see that the bibliography is sorted by author name. The problem with this sorting is that it supports a single function --- to check how many times a particular author is cited in a printed paper as the first author. Unfortunately, when bibliographies are sorted in this fashion,  it becomes very difficult to look up where in the paper that particular entry was cited. If you order the bibliography by the order in which it is referred to in the paper, it becomes much more easier for the poor reader to look up where and why a particular entry was cited in your paper.

IMO, the second function is much more important than the first. So, my plea to the authors: Please, order the bibliography by the order of reference.
