Xipeng Shen (Ph.D 2006) wins NSF CAREER Award.

Xipeng Shen (Ph.D. 2006) has received this year's NSF CAREER (The Faculty Early Career Development) Award.  According to NSF, the NSF CAREER is a program "that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of the early career development activities of those teacher-scholars." The $420K grant will support a 5-year project title "Input-Centric Program Behavior Analysis and Adaptation." Program behavior analysis lies at the core of software-hardware symbiosis.  The project aims to include program inputs---an important but so far virtually ignored dimension---into the focus of program behavior analysis, cultivating a new paradigm, namely input-centric program behavior analysis and adaptation.
