Fixing, preventing, and recovering from concurrency bugs

View publication


Concurrency bugs are becoming widespread with the emerging ubiquity of multicore processors and multithreaded software. They manifest during production runs and lead to severe losses. Many effective concurrency-bug detection tools have been built. However, the dependability of multi-threaded software does not improve until these bugs are handled statically or dynamically. This article discusses our recent progresses on fixing, preventing, and recovering from concurrency bugs.
