"I have seen a lot of students that wrote papers, but never students in their second year"

Moritz Beller and Andy Zaidman (Software Technology) are amazed by a group of five CS students. The students wrote a Tool Demo Paper based on their submission in the annual Context Project, in which students work on a piece of software. The paper has been admitted and is now one of the top two submissions at the International Conference on Software Analysis, Evolution and Reengineering, which is taking place this week in Klagenfurt, Austria. The can write a blog post about their paper that will be published on IEEE Software.
