Vijay attended the Third IEEE Working Conference on Software Visualization (ASE 2014) at Bremen, Germany in September 2015. Vijay and Jim published their research paper “Revealing Runtime Features and Constituent Behaviors within Software” at VISSOFT 2015. Vijay presented the research on visualizing runtime features and behaviors with an interesting talk. This work is an maturation of the prior New Ideas and Early Results paper — “Visualizing Constituent Behaviors within Executions”  by Vijay and Jim. This work looks to highlight an organization of software source code that is driven by runtime executions, instead of developer defined organizations such as classes and packages.

In addition, Vijay also presented a tool paper, “SPIDER SENSE: Software-Engineering, Networked, System Evaluation” at VISSOFT 2015. The work on the tool, “Spider SENSE”, takes a first step towards creating a general purpose infrastructure for evaluating software analysis and comprehension research. This paper and the tool are joint works by Nishaanth Reddy, Junghun Kim, Vijay Palepu and Jim Jones. Both of Vijay’s talks were well received.
