Abstract: Many software-intensive systems today can be characterized as systems of systems (SoS) comprising complex, interrelated, and heterogeneous systems. The behavior of SoS often only emerges at runtime due to complex interactions between the involved systems and their environment. It is thus necessary to determine unexpected behavior by monitoring SoS at runtime, i.e., collecting and … Continue reading in: Journal of Systems and Software, 2015

@SPLC’15 and MODELS’15

We recently got two empirical papers accepted on the notion of features (SPLC’15) and feature modelling (MODELS’15). The work leading to the first paper has been conducted in cooperation with the University of Waterloo, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Fraunhofer IESE, and the University of Toronto. What is a Feature? A Qualitative Study of Features in … Continue reading @SPLC’15 and MODELS’15

A Requirements Monitoring Model for Systems of Systems @ RE’15 Conference 2015

Abstract: Many software systems today can be characterized as systems of systems (SoS) comprising interrelated and heterogeneous systems developed by diverse teams over many years. Due to their scale, complexity, and heterogeneity engineers face significant challenges when determining the compliance of SoS with their requirements. Requirements monitoring approaches are a viable solution for checking system … Continue reading A Requirements Monitoring Model for Systems of Systems @ RE’15 Conference 2015

Cooperation with Politechnico di Milano, Italy

The lab is cooperating with Politechnico di Milano, Italy (Prof. Dr. Luciano Baresi, Dr. Sam Guinea, Dr. Clément Quinton) in the areas of constraint languages for runtime monitoring and dynamic software product lines. During a recent visit Michael Vierhauser and Rick Rabiser gave a talk at Politechnico di Milano on the REMINDS requirements monitoring infrastructure.

Invited Talk at Charles University, Prague

Rick Rabiser gave an invited talk at Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic and presented the requirements monitoring infrastructure developed in research module 1. On April 14th he visited the Department of Distributed and Dependable Systems (d3s) chaired by Tomas Bures to discuss joint research interests on monitoring cyber-physical systems.
