David Naumann presents invited talk at the European Symposium on Programming

HOBOKEN, N.J. - Professor David Naumann of Stevens Institute of Technology’s Department of Computer Science, was the invited speaker for the European Symposium on Programming. He spoke in a joint session of the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS), comprised of five main conferences and many workshops, with more than 500 participants. ETAPS took place March 20-28 in Paphos, Cyprus.

Naumann's talk was entitled "Dynamic Boundaries: Global Invariants for Local Reasoning.” It addressed a fundamental challenge in software design: encapsulation of mutable state shared between software components.

Naumann and his collaborators, including Ph.D. student Stan Rosenberg and former Stevens faculty member Anindya Banerjee, propose a novel form of interface specification, which leverages off-the-shelf automated theorem provers to provide secure compartmentalization of software modules.

Naumann's research is supported by awards from the National Science Foundation and has been conducted with collaborators at Microsoft Research and IMDEA Software, Madrid.
