The D3S Seminar is a regular meeting event of the department members and guest speakers. It is also a regular course Advanced Topics in Distributed and Component-Based Systems I, II (NSWI057, NSWI058). This course is recommended for Ph.D. and advanced graduate students.

Regular meetings take place on Tuesdays at 14:00 in S9 (if not noted otherwise in the schedule below).

We recommend subscribing to the seminar mailing list to receive announcements on special seminars, schedule updates and other important news.

Code Coverage for Performance Testing

Test coverage measures what percentage of source code has been executed by a test suite, and it has been used for decades as a metric to assess the quality of tests. Despite its popularity in functional testing, the same quality criteria have seldom been applied to performance testing. Nonetheless, given the considerable costs associated with the design and execution of performance tests, metrics of code coverage could become crucial in the optimization of performance testing activities. In this talk, we will focus on how code coverage can be defined for performance testing, in a way that is compatible with current goals and practices in the field. We will introduce a method to compute code coverage in practice, and we will explore the challenges that arise when compared to functional testing.

Fuzzing of Multithreaded Programs in .NET - Challenges and Solutions

Reasoning about programs using multiple computational threads is very difficult, because the behaviour of the program might depend on the specific interleaving of operations done by individual threads. Moreover some of the thread interleavings might exhibit a subtle bug in the application. This talk will demonstrate what challenges needs to be tackled when trying to control the thread interleaving of a .NET application in order to force some atomicity violations to manifest.
