"Computer-Aided Programming Across the Software Stack"

( MPI-SWS talk in Kooperation mit dem Fachbereich Informatik)

Program synthesis techniques aim to generate executable programs from some high-level of expression on user intent, such as logical specifications, examples, or naive reference implementation.This talk will survey different flavors of program synthesis and their applications across the entire software stack, ranging from computer end-users all the way to systems programmers.We will also illustrate how program synthesis is useful for addressing different concerns in software development, including functionality, correctness, performance, and security.

Bio: Isil Dillig (PhD, Stanford) is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin where she leads the UToPiA research group. Her main research area is programming languages, with a specific emphasis on static analysis, verification, and program synthesis. The techniques developed by her group aim to make software systems more reliable, secure, and easier to build. Dr. Dillig is a Sloan Fellow and a recipient of the NSF CAREER award. Her publications have received distinguished paper awards at top-tier conferences, such as PLDI, OOPSLA, ETAPS, and others. She has also served as co-chair of international conferences and workshops, such as, most recently, the 2019 Computer Aided Verification (CAV) conference.
