Nicholas’s and Jim’s paper “Software Behavior and Failure Clustering: An Empirical Study of Fault Causality” was accepted for publication at ICST 2012! This paper presents a novel empirical study to demonstrate how independent, individual faults in software can interact to either act independently or work in concert to create entirely new and different failure behaviors. The experimental setup has implications for failure-clustering research and recommendations for future scientific evaluations of such clustering techniques.
