Nicholas and Jim had two short papers accepted for publication in the New Ideas and Emerging Research track at the International Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (FSE-NIER). The first paper, "Semantic Fault Diagnosis: Automatic Natural-Language Fault Descriptions," describes a technique to automatically extract natural-language summaries of bugs from a program’s source code. The second paper, "Concept-Based Failure Clustering," describes a technique for performing clustering of failing test cases based on the natural-language concepts that describe their failures.
