Seminars at the Faculty of Informatics

Dynamic Generation of Processes for Self-Adaptive Software Systems

The Faculty of Informatics is pleased to announce a seminar given by Rogério de Lemos

DATE: Thursday, June 30th, 2011
PLACE: USI Università della Svizzera italiana, room SI-013, Informatics building (Via G. Buffi 13)
TIME: 15.30

In this talk, we present the development of a framework for the dynamic generation of processes that factors out common process generation mechanisms and provides explicit customization points to tailor process generation capabilities to different application domains. The framework encompasses a reference process for managing the dynamic generation of processes, a reusable infrastructure for generating processes and a methodology for its instantiation in different application domains. The framework explores model driven technology for simplifying the generation of processes in different domains, and includes fault-tolerance mechanisms for dealing with faults during generation and execution of processes. In order to evaluate our approach, we have applied it for managing the generation of the processes responsible for conducting component-based integration testing of self-adaptive software systems.

Rogério de Lemos is a Lecturer in Computing Science at the University of Kent since 1999. During 2009, he was Invited Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics Engineering, University of Coimbra, Portugal. Before joining Kent, he was a Senior Research Associate at the Centre for Software Reliability (CSR) at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. His main research areas are in software architectures for dependable systems, and software engineering for self-adaptive software systems. He was General Chair of SEAMS 2010.

HOST: Prof. Mauro Pezzč
