2023 ICSE MIP Award for SemFix
January, 2023

The work SemFix on program repair from our group receives the Most Influential Paper Award from International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) 2023.

In the paper, the authors present an automated program repair method based on symbolic execution, constraint solving, and program synthesis. The requirement on the repaired code to pass a given set of tests is formulated as a constraint. The work explored the usage of symbolic execution for specification inference, when only tests are available to describe programmer intent. With this work, the authors coined the area of semantic-based program repair. The work on SemFix significantly inspired the ideas explored in our MoE Tier 3 project on Automated Program Repair!
