Dynamic Symbolic Execution: Perspective and Reflections
Abstract: Dynamic symbolic execution is an effective program analysis technique that can automatically explore paths through a program. It has recently gathered significant attention, with successful application in several areas, including software testing, software engineering, computer security, program verification and software systems, among others. In this award talk, I will give my perspective on the main developments in dynamic symbolic execution and the ongoing challenges it faces.
Bio: Cristian Cadar is a Reader (Associate Professor) in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, where he leads the Software Reliability Group.
