Researcher from HASLab receives the Best Paper Award in the XXI Ibero-American Conference on Software Engineering

The paper “Using Automatic Refactoring to Improve Energy Efficiency of Android Apps” was awarded with the Best Paper Award in the XXI Ibero-American Conference on Software Engineering (CIbSE 2018) that took place in Bogotá, Colombia on 23 and 27 April.

This research explores the advantages of a tool that helps the development of mobile applications in order for them to improve the energy consumption. Specifically, this paper shows that several mobile applications still don’t follow the best energy efficiency practices, showing that the tool has the potential to improve 30% of Android applications.
