Two ASU team members Jessica Jones and Jerry Liou and their co-authors brought home best paper awards from two co-located scientific conferences in Montreal, Canada, May 25-26, 2019. 

Jessica Jones and her co-authors recently won the best paper award at the Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-managing Systems in Montreal, Canada. Jones is an assistant research engineer in Biodesign Center for Biocomputing, Security and Society. Her paper, “Defeating Denial-of-Service Attacks in a Self-Managing N-Variant System,” describes a cyber defense system modeled on CRISPR/Cas, the bacterial adaptive immune system. The work is based on a collaboration between Arizona State University and the University of Virginia. Winning authors included Jessica Jones (B-CBSS), Jason Hiser (UVA), Jack Davidson (UVA), Stephanie Forrest (B-CBSS).

Jhe-Yu “Jerry” Liou won the best paper award at the Genetic Improvement 2019 6th International Workshop on Genetic Improvement Workshop at International Conference of Software Engineering. Liou is a doctoral student in the School of Computing, Information and Decision Systems Engineering. His paper, “Genetic Improvement of GPU Code,” was co-authored with ASU professors Carole Wu (CIDSE) and Stephanie Forrest (CIDSE/CBSS). The paper describes a new method for automating GPU codes using evolutionary computation.
