ICST’12 paper on Unicorn

Sangmin has a new paper on Unicorn, a tool to pinpoint the location of bugs in parallel and concurrent software programs. Unicorn generalizes his prior work on Falcon to include the case when a bug in a concurrent program involves more than variable (so-called multivariable atomicity violations). The Unicorn paper will appear in the 2012 International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and Validation (ICST). Congratulations to Sangmin and his advisor, Mary Jean Harrold!
