This year there is also a Student Research Competition with monetary rewards.

Last year we were hosted by HSE in Moscow: ICCQ 2021.

Enterprise-scale static analysis: A Pinpoint experience Charles Zhang

Despite years of research and practice, modern static analysis techniques still cannot detect oldest and extremely well understood software bugs such as the Heartbleed, one of the most “spectacular” security flaws of the recent decade. A remedy, as what we have attempted through the successful commercialization of the Pinpoint platform (PLDI 18), is to make static program analysis aware of the basic characteristics of the modern enterprise-scale software system. The talk focuses on discussing these characteristics and how Pinpoint addresses them pragmatically as well as its future directions. Pinpoint is a LLVM-based cross-language static analysis platform and deployed in major Chinese tech companies such as Tencent, Baidu, Huawei, and Alibaba.

Student Research Competition

The competition provides visibility and exposes up-and-coming researchers to the computer science community. On top of that, the competition gives students an opportunity to receive a monetary support from a leading tech company, motivating them to continue the study.

This year the competition is sponsored by Huawei RRI.

You must be BSc, MSc, or PhD student in any university in Russia:

  1. You pick a research question from the list below;

  2. You research it and publish your results in any conference or a journal sponsored by ACM or IEEE;

  3. You email us a link to your published paper before the 15th of March, 2022;

  4. We let our judges appraise it;

  5. We announce winners on the day of the conference;

  6. Best papers get monetary rewards from our prize fund, which is $30,000 this year.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of research questions we expect you to try finding answers for:
