Jim has been invited to give a keynote talk at Regression 2012 in Montreal about the past, present, and future of the Tarantula work. Regression 2012 is co-located with the International Conference on Software Testing, where Nicholas and Jim have a paper “Software Behavior and Failure Clustering” and Fang and Jim have a paper “Weighted System Dependence Graph.”
The abstract of Jim’s keynote is:
In this keynote, Dr. Jones will review the story of the Tarantula fault-localization technique and its many incarnations in the decade since its inception. He will also describe some of the unexpected ways in which the original Tarantula concept is adapting to and influencing new families of approaches that use regression tests for progressive software-maintenance tasks.
