UT Dallas Researchers Have Five Papers Accepted Into Prominent Software Engineering Conference

Next August, researchers from the UT Dallas CS Department will have a strong presence at the 27th ACM Joint European Software Engineering Conference and Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (ESEC/FSE) with five accepted research papers. The conference brings together experts from academia and industry to exchange latest research results and trends, as well as their practical application in all areas of software engineering. The ESEC/FSE conference is an internationally renowned forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences, and challenges in the field of software engineering.

The ESEC/FSE Conference is particularly selective in accepting research papers, and each paper submitted to the conference is rigorously peer-reviewed by multiple experts.  Five papers submitted by Drs. Andrian Marcus, Vincent Ng, Lingming Zhang, Wei Yang, Shiyi Wei, and their respective co-authors were accepted.  The paper “Assessing the Quality of the Steps to Reproduce in Bug Reports” authored by UT Dallas Software Engineering Ph.D. student Oscar Chaparro and UT Dallas CS Professors Drs. Marcus and Ng will receive the FSE 2019 Distinguished Paper award. Chaparro will be joining the faculty at the College of William and Mary in Fall 2019.

The following is the list of papers authored by UT Dallas faculty members that were accepted by the 2019 ESEC/FSE Conference:

The UT Dallas CS Department currently ranks 8th  in software engineering as well as in embedded and real-time systems according to This organization publishes its rankings of Computer Science Schools based on the number of publications by faculty that have appeared in the most selective conferences in each area of Computer Science. The rankings are designed to identify institutions and faculty actively engaged in research across a number of areas of computer science.


The UT Dallas Computer Science program is one of the largest Computer Science departments in the United States with over 2,800 bachelors-degree students, more than 1,000 master’s students, 190 Ph.D. students,  52 tenure-track faculty members, and 41 full-time senior lecturers, as of Fall 2018. With The University of Texas at Dallas’ unique history of starting as a graduate institution first, the CS Department is built on a legacy of valuing innovative research and providing advanced training for software engineers and computer scientists.
