As a second-year PhD student at Penn, I've been doing research on making writing&debugging parallel programs easier. I always consider PLDI a great conference where experts in programming languages share their amazing work & ideas, and I long for getting inspired at Portland a week later.
I am also very interested in the following tutorials: (1) PINPLAY: Using PinPlay for Reproducible Analysis and Replay Debugging and (2) Machine Learning for Code Analytics. I hope to have a pleasant day for these tutorials.
Besides, I am in the SRC this year and will present a poster about our current work on reducing metadata redundancy in sound&complete race detection. I look forward to talking to all the people interested in this topic!
