Their paper titled "Assisting Developers of Big Data Analytics Applications when Deploying on Hadoop Clouds" was awarded the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award, to be presented at the 35th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2013) later this month in San Francisco, California. It is worth noting that. ICSE 2013 has accepted 85 papers to be delivered at the conference, from among a record number of 461 submissions."
