Transcript of "A2 Bforum P1 10 Kul Sam Michiels Stadium"

  1. 1. Software Technology for Adaptable Distributed Middleware (STADiUM) Sam Michiels sam.michiels@cs.kuleuven.be DistriNet research group • DistriNet: Distributed systems & computer Networks – 8 professors | 12 postdocs | 50 junior researchers • Annual budget: 5 MEuro • Extensive expertise in collaborating with industry – Active in 50+ research & innovation projects (2003-08) – 30+ projects in close collaboration with industry • Research areas in distributed software – Adaptable middleware – Architectures for distributed software (SOA, multi-tier architectures) – Support platforms (.NET, JEE, web services) • STADiUM project partners – IMEC/NES (Prof. R. Wuyts, Dr. M. D’Hondt) – VUB/PROG (Prof. T. D’Hondt) STADiUM 2 Project overview • Rationale – Emerging network technologies trigger development of large-scale distributed applications – Resulting in highly sophisticated software requirements • Multi-level heterogeneity, complex dynamics & extreme scale – Need for tailoring middleware to changing operational conditions • Main Objectives – Enable advanced reconfiguration of host infrastructure middleware • Optimized execution strategies of memory management & concurrency – Define domain-specific distribution middleware architecture • Interoperability between large-scale networks & Internet – Develop advanced middleware services • Factor out common functionality – Define domain-specific configuration languages STADiUM 3
  2. 2. STADiUM project in a nutshell (1/3) middleware STADiUM 4 STADiUM project in a nutshell (2/3) • Research focus – Software technology • Simple/uniform API • Software toolkit to program, query, manage & maintain common middleware platform – Adaptability • Domain-specific policy (configuration) languages • Automated management & maintenance – Advanced distribution middleware • Middleware platform to enable load, install, update of services • Customized to application-specific quality requirements • Interoperability between backend/gateways/(sensor)networks STADiUM 5 STADiUM project in a nutshell (3/3) • Six research tracks – Track 0: Integrated architecture – Track 1: Application case studies • Transport & logistics • Digital media distribution – Track 2: Configuration languages – Track 3: Customizable service frameworks – Track 4: Adaptation architecture – Track 5: Execution environment STADiUM 6
  3. 3. Industrial advisory board Alcatel-Lucent, IBM De Lijn, DSP Duo, IDxS, Valley, Inno.com, Porthus, H.Essers, Essensium, NIKO, Punch Telematix, iCity, LMS RMONI TASS STADiUM STADiUM 7 Looking for? • Related real-world software monitoring & management challenges • Complementary scenarios in the context of the two case studies – Transport & logistics – Distributed media • Relevant domain-specific expertise STADiUM 8 Contact • Project lead – Prof. Wouter Joosen & Dr. Sam Michiels (DistriNet-K.U.Leuven) • Contact details – Sam Michiels, Industrial Research Fellow sam.michiels@cs.kuleuven.be 016/32.70.68 Celestijnenlaan 200A, box 2402 B-3001 Leuven – Project ID: STADiUM, IWT-SBO 80037 • Project web site: http://distrinet.cs.kuleuven.be/ STADiUM 9
