Highlights of the year
Triskell has released the version 1.2 of its Kermeta software (KERnel META-modelling), that now comes with a compiler making it possible to deliver efficient standalone tools ready to be integrated in software development environments such as Eclipse. Kermeta is heavily used within Triskell for many collaborative projects, but also beyond Triskell by a growing number of both academic and industrial partners worldwide.
As promised at the last INRIA evaluation seminar, Triskell has started to investigate a more dynamic use of models (an approach dubbed models at runtime  ,  ,  ,  ,  ), and its application to Software Oriented Architectures in the context of Building Automation  ,  . Meanwhile we have made several breakthroughs in tackling the difficult problems of testing models transformations  ,  and Aspect Oriented Software  ,  .
Triskell had 4 papers accepted  ,  ,  ,  at MODELS'2008, the main conference in our field (274 papers submitted, 57 accepted, including 9 French papers). That consolidates our position as the world leading team in the MDE field.
