“Leveraging Parameter and Resource Naming Conventions to Improve Test Suite Adherence to Persistent State Conditions”
A web application is a software application whose functionality can be accessed by users over the Internet via web browsers. As web applications take on vital and sensitive responsibilities, it is critical that web applications are well-tested and maintained before they are deployed to the public and with every subsequent update or change. A common approach to automating web application testing is test suite generation based on user sessions. Although these approaches to automated testing are promising,
they leave room for improvement in effectiveness due to their lack of adherence to requirements imposed by data outside of application code, such as data stored in databases. My objective is to contribute an approach to creating more effective web application test suites based on predicting the content of the application’s external data store(s) throughout testing.
Congratulations to CS Minor Brian Krouskos ’16 and CS Major Jamie White ’17 as they are honored at the 2016 Phi Beta Kappa/Society of Cincinnati Convocation and Induction Ceremony to be held on Sunday, March 13th. Brian and Jamie join previous CSCI PBK inductees Sam Borowsky ’16 and Michael Holt ’16 who were inducted at the 2015 Phi Beta Kappa Ceremony.
“I came here primarily for a liberal arts education (something not available back home), uncertain of what I wanted to do. A year and a half later, I feel like I know the direction I’m headed in, and the journey has been worth it.”

Friday, December 4th
3:30 p.m. (reception)
4:00 p.m. (talk)
Computational techniques have long been applied to biological data to address a wide range of evolutionary questions.
This talk will focus on the need for accurate, efficient, scalable, and general computational methods for reconstructing gene evolutionary histories. The TreeFix algorithm that combines sequence data and species histories to correct reconstruction errors will be presented along with a demonstration of how the accurate predictions enabled by TreeFix have been used to improve our understanding of evolution.
Students, Faculty/Staff invited to attend!
