He bas been listed in Marcus ‘who’s who in the world’ since 2008.

Title: Detection of Software Source Code Clone

Abstract: Code clones are separate fragments of code that are very similar. They are a common phenomenon in an application that has been under development for some time. Although modern programming languages offer various abstraction mechanisms to facilitate reuse of code fragments, copy-paste is still a widely used reuse strategy. This often leads to numerous duplicated code fragments -so called clones- in large software systems. However, cloning is problematic for software maintenance for several reasons. First of all, cloning unnecessarily increases program size. Since many maintenance efforts correlate with program size, this increases the maintenance effort. Secondly, changes to one clone, such as bug fixing, typically need to be made to the other clones as well, again increasing maintenance effort. Finally, if changes to duplicated source code fragments are performed inconsistently, this can introduce bugs.

   In this talk, we begin with background concepts, a generic clone detection process and an overall taxonomy of current techniques and tools. We then classify, compare and evaluate the techniques and tools in two different dimensions. First, we classify and compare approaches based on a number of facets, each of which has a set of (possibly overlapping) attributes. Second, we qualitatively evaluate the classified techniques and tools with respect to a taxonomy of editing scenarios.
