    Title -  XPlus: Integrating Interface Design based on User-Experience within eXtreme Programming Practices

    Authors - Carina Piauhy and Christina Chavez

    Abstract - The eXtreme Programming agile development methodology attempts to produce systems with high production quality that meet the actual clients’ needs in a short time frame. However, it does not give much emphasis in the development of the aplications’ user interfaces, which is one of the fundamental factors to user satisfaction. This paper addresses the conciliation of practices from the XP with practices from interface design centered on user experience, aiming for a higher quality in the final software product. A quasi-systematic review was conducted to identify and characterize methodologies in related work. After the identification of existing methodologies, the present work describes a proposal for the adaptation of XP, in such way to include user experience practices. This proposal has been named XPlus. Finally, a case study was conducted to evaluate the usability of applications built using XPlus.

    The paper “On the Design of a Multi-Perspective Visualization Environment to Enhance Software Comprehension Activities”, authored by INES Researchers Glauco Carneiro, Claudio Sant’Anna and Manoel Mendonça will be presented at the 7th Workshop on Modern Software Maintenance, satellite event of the Brazilian Symposium on Software Quality, SBQS 2010.

    This paper describes the steps followed to design an extensible multi-perspective Eclipse plug-in for static software visualization. The work offers an initial set of three perspectives and their respective views that are intended to provide a broad set of software visualization resources to the IDE user. It will be presented, during WMSWM Technical Sessions on June 11th, in the city of Belém, Brazil. Visit  http://www.sbqs2010.ufpa.br/ for more information.

  • Brazilian student in the ACM SRC Grand Finals

    Publicado em May 27th, 2010News
    The research of Diego Tavares Cavalcanti, an undergraduate student in the Computer Science program at the Federal University of Campina Grande (UFCG), has qualified as one of the three undergraduate winners in the ACM Student Research Competition Grand Finals 2010. Mr Cavalcanti’s work has been selected among 15 other award-winning entries. In June, Diego and his advisor - professor Rohit Gheyi, also from UFCG - will travel to San Francisco, USA, to represent Brazil and receive the prize during the prestigious ACM Awards Banquet.

    The ACM competition

    The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) is aimed at both undergraduate and graduate students worldwide. SRC is sponsored by Microsoft Research and is held by the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery), the world’s largest and most influential computing society.
    Under SRC, research results by undergraduate and graduate students compete. During the first phase, students compete in their specific research area. Then, at the SRC Grand Finals, the winning entries from each area compete against each other in the so-called Grand Finals. The awards are presented during the highly prestigious ACM Awards Banquet, in the presence of the most important and influential computer scientists in the world. It is during this event, that the Turing Award (known as the “Nobel Prize of computing”) winner is announced.

    Brazil in the SRC Grand Finals

    In 2009, Diego - under the supervision of professor Rohit - submitted the paper “Improving Safety when Refactoring Aspect-Oriented Programs” to compete in SRC’s undergraduate category at OOPSLA (Orlando, USA). Their research work won first prize (see the video and plaque). That achievement classified their work to compete in the Grand Finals of the ACM SRC with 15 other entries from various computing areas and countries, namely, the USA, Ireland, Germany and Japan. Gratefully, their research has been classified as one of the three winners of the ACM SRC Grand Finals. This has been the best performance ever of a Brazilian student in the competition. The final results, however, will be announced at the ACM Awards Banquet.
    The banquet and the announcement will occur on June 26th.
