What a nice early Christmas gift! Today we were notified that both our submissions to ICSE’15 got accepted. Both papers are based on our Android infrastructure. In the paper IccTA: Detecting Inter-Component Privacy Leaks in Android Apps, which came out of our long-standing collaboration with the University of Luxembourg and Penn State, we present a precise approach for Android inter-component analysis. In the paper Mining Apps for Abnormal Usage of Sensitive Data, in joint work with the group of Andreas Zeller (Saarbrücken), we present the first large scale study of using information-flow analysis to identify Android malware. Thanks a lot to all our collaborators for their hard work! It’s been a pleasure working with all of you!
BTW, in addition I will also be speaking at the New Faculty Symposium at ICSE.
