ERCIM Working Group Software Evolution
The Working Group (WG) on Software Evolution is one of the many working groups supported by ERCIM. The main goal of the WG is to identify a set of formally-founded techniques and associated tools to support software developers with the common problems they encounter when evolving large and complex software systems. With this initiative, the WG plans to become a Virtual European Research and Training Centre on Software Evolution. We are active members of this WG. Read more at http://www.planet-evolution.org .
The Belgium IAP (Interuniversity Attraction Poles) MoVES (Fundamental Issues in Software Engineering: Modeling, Verification and Evolution of Software) is a project whose partners are the Belgium universities (VUB, KUL, UA, UCB, ULB, FUNDP, ULg, UMH) and three European institutes (INRIA, IC and TUD) respectively from France, Great Britain and Netherlands. This consortium combines the leading Belgian research teams and their neighbors in software engineering, with recognized scientific excellence in MDE, software evolution, formal modeling and verification, and AOSD. The long term objective of our network is to strengthen existing collaborations and forge new links between those teams, and to leverage and disseminate our research expertise in this domain at an European level. The project focusses on the development, integration and extension of state-of-the-art languages, formalisms and techniques for modeling and verifying dependable software systems and supporting the evolution of Software-intensive systems. The project has started in January 2007 and is scheduled for a 60-months period. Read more at http://moves.vub.ac.be
INRIA associate team CALA
The ADAM project-team together with the Prog-Ssel team from Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) focus on crosscutting concerns at the level of software architectures, component models and object-oriented programs. More specifically, we work together in CALA (Aspect-Oriented Software Development in Languages, Component Models and Architectures), an INRIA Associate Team project, ( http://jacquard.lifl.fr/CALA ) for elaborating and extending joint work we have already started in the field of AOSD on four particular topics: (1) logic pointcuts at the object-oriented programming level, (2) complex aspects, (3) the unification of aspects and components, and (4) pointcuts at the architectural level. The associate team has started in January 2006 and will ended at the end of 2008.
IST FP6 NoE AOSD-Europe
AOSD-Europe is an ongoing proposal to set up a Network of Excellence (NoE) on AOSD within IST-FP6. The proposal brings together 11 research groups and among them members of the ADAM project-team and other members from OBASCO, Pop-Art and Triskell INRIA project-teams. The proposal is led by Lancaster University, Darmstadt University and University of Twente. The goal of the NoE is to harmonize, integrate and strengthen European research activities on all issues related to aspect orientation: analysis, design, development, formalization, applications, empirical studies. The project has started in January 2004 and is scheduled for a 48-months period. http://www.aosd-europe.net
IST FP7 SOA4All Integrated Project
Service-Oriented Architectures for All (SOA4All) is a large-scale Integrating Project funded by the European Seventh Framework Programme, under the Service and Software Architectures, Infrastructures and Engineering research area. This is a 36-months project started in March 2008. Partners are: Atos Origin (Spain), British Telecommunications (UK), CEFRIEL (Italy), EBM WebSourcing (France), Hanival Internet Services GmbH (Austria), INRIA (France), Intelligent Software Components (Spain), Ontotext Lab (Bulgaria), Open University (UK), SAP AG (Germany), Seekda OG (Austria), TIE (Nederlands), The University of Manchester (UK), TXT e-Solutions Spa (Italy), Universitaet Karlsruhe (Germany), University Innsbruck (Austria).
SOA4All will help to realize a world where billions of parties are exposing and consuming services via advanced Web technology: the main objective of the project is to provide a comprehensive framework and infrastructure that integrates complementary and evolutionary technical advances— i.e. , SOA, context management, Web principles, Web 2.0 and Semantic Web—into a coherent and domain-independent service delivery platform.
