On Friday, January 15th, Patricia Lago held her inaugural lecture as Full Professor. This was also a nice occasion for the S2 Group (past and present) to reunite, as documented by the pic below! On this page, you can find the program of the day and the slides of the symposium “Software Engineering Reflections for Practice […]
The 4th International Conference on ICT for Sustainability (ICT4S) will be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands! The ICT4S conferences bring together leading researchers in ICT for Sustainability with government and industry representatives, including decision-makers with an interest in using ICT for sustainability, researchers focusing on ICT effects on sustainability and developers of sustainable ICT systems or […]
DATE: Monday, November 23rd, 2015 TIME: 11:00-12:00 ROOM: WN-M623 (Science Building, VU Campus) Title:Software Development for the Cloud – Challenges and Opportunities Abstract: Cloud computing is more than cheaply and quickly spinning up virtualized hardware. Rather, the cloud computing hype has proven to be a transformative force that is changing how software development and provisioning works in companies […]
DATE: Monday, November 23rd, 2015 TIME: 15:30-16:30 ROOM: WN-M639 (Science Building, VU Campus) Title: Enabling Non-Expert Users to Model and Execute Self-Adaptable Missions of Autonomous Drones Abstract: Flying drones are increasingly popular since they promise to simplify a myriad of everyday tasks. Currently, vendors provide low-level APIs and basic primitives to program drones, making mission development a task-specific and […]
DATE: Friday, October 30th 2015 TIME: 14:30-15:30 ROOM: WN-P4.23 (Science Building, VU Campus) TITLE: Energy-Aware Software Engineering ABSTRACT: ICT systems play an increasingly important role in the global energy balance. On one hand they contribute significantly to the energy consumption, on the other hand, smart control of energy-intensive devices through ICT is predicted to reduce the global […]
DATE: Tuesday, 27 October 2015 TIME: 13:00-14:00 ROOM: WN-S655 (Science Building, VU Campus) TITLE: Quality-driven Architectural Patterns for Self-aware Cloud-based Software ABSTRACT: Self-awareness and self-expression are promising architectural concepts recently emerging in the field of self-adaptive software. Inspired from psychology and cognitive science, the concept of self-awareness has been re-deduced in the context of software engineering to realise software […]
