The 6th CREST Open Workshop

Dependence Analysis and Slicing for Programs and Models



Wednesday, 29 April 2010



CREST Centre, King's College London



Dependence analysis underpins many Software Engineering activities such as Testing, Maintenance, Reuse and Re-engineering. There has been a lot of work on dependence analysis and slicing of programs and, increasingly for models, moving these techniques up the software development abstraction chain. In this workshop we will focus on the connections between dependence analysis and slicing at the program level and the model level.

There is increasing industrial interest and application of methods and techniques for dependence analysis. This will be reflected in the workshop, which will include two invited talks on current work on dependence analysis and slicing at IBM. The workshop will be informal and will allow plenty of opportunities for discussion and networking.


Programme and Downloadable Resources:

Talks will be 25 minutes allowing 15 minutes for discussion and questions.
