AOSD-Europe (Network of Excellence)

Participants : Jean-Marc Jézéquel, Noël Plouzeau, Olivier Barais, Didier Vojtisek.

Aspect-Oriented Software Development (AOSD) supports systematic identification, modularisation, representation and composition of crosscutting concerns such as security, mobility, distribution and resource management. Its potential benefits include improved ability to reason about the problem domain and corresponding solution; reduction in application code size, development costs and maintenance time; improved code reuse; architectural and design level reuse by separating non-functional concerns from key business domain logic; improved ability to engineer product lines; application adaptation in response to context information and better modelling methods across the lifecycle. AOSD-Europe will harmonise and integrate the research, training and dissemination activities of its members in order to address fragmentation of AOSD activities in Europe and strengthen innovation in areas such as aspect-oriented analysis and design, formal methods, languages, empirical studies and applications of AOSD techniques in ambient computing. Through this harmonisation, integration and development of essential competencies, the AOSD-Europe network of excellence aims to establish a premier virtual European research center on AOSD. The virtual research centre will synthesise the collective viewpoints, expertise, research agendas and commercial foci of its member organisations into a vision and pragmatic realisation of the application of AOSD technologies to improve fundamental quality attributes of software systems, especially those critical to the information society. It will also act as an interface and a centralised source of information for other national and international research groups, industrial organisations and governmental bodies to access the members' work and enter collaborative initiatives. The existence of such a premier research base will strengthen existing European excellence in the area, hence establishing Europe as a world leader. ( )
