Part of the DAASE project includes visits between different Universities to learn about other groups’ expertise. Earlier this month on the 7th to 10th of January the Stirling team, which has a particular expertise in Machine Learning, Hyper Heuristics and Optimization visited UCL to further become familiar with Software Engineering and in particular Search Based Software Engineering. This was a four-day visit. Topics discussed included Program Analysis, Program Slicing, Genetic Programming, Automatic Test Data Generation, and Software Testing among other areas.
The visitors and hosts could relax with a very nice dinner at China City (an up market version of China Town), which was also part of the event. In free time the visitors had the opportunity to interact with the hosts and ask questions informally.
Planned visits in the near future include a visit of the UCL and York groups to Stirling.
The Stirling group would like to take this opportunity to thank the UCL group for their time and hospitality.
