EGIDE PHC Aurora: University of Oslo

Participants : Gabriel Hermosillo, Daniel Romero, Romain Rouvoy, Russel Nzekwa, Lionel Seinturier, Alban Tiberghien.

For the last years, Internet has been catalyzing the development of large scale distributed systems. These distributed systems provide users with advanced interaction artifacts developed to achieve a common objective. These systems, while still being investigated predominantly in the defense sector, is also seeing application in such fields as national air and auto transportation, space exploration, and health care, to name a few. These systems, also known as Systems-of-Systems (SoS) are made of heterogeneous pieces of software, which need to be combined in order to build a coherent platform. Keating, et al. define SoS as meta-systems that "are themselves comprised of multiple autonomous embedded complex systems that can be diverse in technology, context, operation, geography and conceptual frame" . A remaining challenge of SoS is the dependability and adaptation dimensions. From a scientific perspective the objective of this collaboration is to jointly research and develop common research projects with the goal of providing innovative approaches for the dependability and the adaptation of Systems of Systems. In particular we aim at developing a common framework that will include a comprehensive support for the following aspects:

ERCIM Working Group Software Evolution

Participant : Laurence Duchien.

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. Read more at .

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

ICT FP7 SOA4All Integrated Project

Participants : Nicolas Dolet, Philippe Merle, Alban Tiberghien.

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.
