When Systems Engineering Meets Language Engineering.

Abstract: The engineering of systems involves many different stakeholders, each with their own domain of expertise. Hence more and more organizations are adopting Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) to allow domain experts to express solutions directly in terms of relevant domain … Continue reading

Leveraging platform basic services in cloud application platforms for the development of cloud applications

Cloud application platforms gain popularity and have the potential to alter the way service based cloud applications are developed involving utilisation of platform basic services. A platform basic service is considered as a piece of software, which provides certain functionality … Continue reading

Employing Domain Knowledge for Optimizing Component Communication

Abstract The emerging area of (smart) Cyber Physical Systems (sCPS) triggers demand for new methods of design, development, and deployment of architecturally dynamic distributed systems. Current approaches (e.g. Component-Based Software Engineering and Agent-Based Development) become insufficient since they fail in … Continue reading

Model-Driven Design of Ensemble-Based Component Systems

Abstract In this research abstract we describe our approach towards the design of ensemble-based component systems. Our motivation lies in the fact that, in these systems, tracing the behavior of individual constituents to system-level goals and requirements is challenging. Our approach is … Continue reading

Gossiping Components for Cyber-Physical Systems

Abstract Developing software for dynamic cyber-physical systems (CPS) is a complex task. One has to deal with the dynamicity and unreliability of the phys-ical environment where the software resides in, while, at the same time, provide sufficient levels of dependability … Continue reading

DEECo: an Ecosystem for Cyber-Physical Systems

Abstract In this work we tackle the problem of designing and developing software-intensive cyber-physical systems (CPS), which are large distributed systems of collaborating elements that closely interact with the physical world, such as intelligent transportation systems and crowdsourcing applications. Due to their specific constraints, … Continue reading
