Activities and Projects
In addition to this WEBSYS
proposal and associated, university-funded research activities, we will try
to co-ordinate WEBSYS with some of the following ongoing and planned
project, under the industrial PROGIT program at NFR.
Co-ordinator: Tor Ulsund, Bravida. 6 MNOK per year for 2000–2002.
- Other NFR
industrial projects, like DAIM, co-ordinated by SINTEF.
- Internal SPI
projects in software–producing organisations, such as Computas,
DnV, EDB/Telenor 4tel, EDB Fundator, EDB Novit, Genera, Ericsson,
Kongsberg-Ericsson, Kongsberg-Spacetec, Statkonsult, Storebrand,
Bravida Geomatikk etc. (aside from the three cooperating industrial
partners). Contacts in all of these companies are already established,
and the companies welcome further co-operation.
center of excellence in software engineering (2000-2010, under
planning), joint IDI/NTNU and Ifi/UiO. Web-basesd systems are one of
six chosen areas of study.
- CAGIS basic
research project at IDI (1997-2003), working on e.g. web-technologies
to support cooperative activities by agentt/XML technologies.
basic research project at IDI (2001-2004, upstarting), to support
mobile work across heterogeneous (web) environments.
- INCO basic research
project, joint by IDI /NTNU and IfI/UiO (2001-2004, upstarting), to
support incremental and component-based development.
- Cooperation with
other Norwegian universities and colleges, e.g. through the existing NAWUS
Norges-nettverk for education in software engineering
- Possible new
international projects, e.g. within ESPRIT and ESSI. (About 20
EU projects have been conducted by NTNU, SINTEF and UiO in related
areas since 1990).
exchange, by international co-operation and exchange, e.g. with
the Universities of Maryland (prof. Basili), Ottawa (prof. Briand),
Southern California (prof. Boehm), Aachen (dr. Westfechtel),
Kaiserslautern (prof. Rombach), Lund (prof. Wohlin), London (prof.
Fenton), Manchester (prof. Warboys), Grenoble, (prof. Cunin),
Lancaster (prof. Sommerville), Pisa (prof. Ambriola), Milano (prof.
Fuggetta), Torino (dr. Morisio), Aarhus (prof. Mathiassen), and
Glasgow (prof. Welland and Atkinson).
- Also cooperation
with international software engineering institutions is
planned: FC-MD in Maryland,
IESE in Kaiserslautern,
and the ISERN network node managed from Kaiserslautern.
In addition, we have ongoing contacts with international companies
such as Q-Labs, Bull, Siemens, Matra, Cap Gemini, ICL, and
Note that WEBSYS is able
to deliver relevant results, regardless of the mentioned industrial
projects (e.g. PROFIT), but the total effect will be greater if we can
involve more actors of this kind.
