January 10, 2007: Software Engineering Research Seminar

Title : SHAGE: Self-managed Software framework for Service Robot
Speaker : Professor Sooyong Park, Ph.D., Department of Computer Science, Sogang University, Seoul, Republic of Korea.
When: January 10, 10AM
Where: Woodward Hall 338 Conference room
Host: Dr. Seok-Won Lee

Behavioral, situational and environmental changes in complex software, such as robot software, cannot be completely captured in software design. To handle this dynamism, self-managed software enables its services dynamically adapted to various situations by reconfiguring its software architecture during run-time. We have developed a practical framework, called SHAGE (Self-Healing, Adaptive, and Growing SoftwarE), to support self-managed software for intelligent service robots. The SAHGE framework is composed of six main elements: a situation monitor to identify internal and external conditions of a software system, ontology-based models to describe architecture and components, brokers to find appropriate architectural reconfiguration patterns and components for a situation, a reconfigurator to actually change the architecture based on the selected reconfiguration pattern and components, a decision maker/learner to find the optimal solution of reconfiguring software architecture for a situation, and repositories to effectively manage and share architectural reconfiguration patterns, components, and problem solving strategies. We conducted an experiment of applying the framework to an infotainment robot. The result of the experiment shows the practicality and usefulness of the framework for the intelligent service robots.

Graduate Seminar:
Software Assurance: Requirements Engineering Approach
Presented by Dr. Seok-Won Lee and Robin Gandhi
3:00PM on Friday, March 31, 2006, 106 Woodward Hall :

Abstract: In the first part of our talk, we discuss recent efforts from the Department of Homeland Security to create a common body of knowledge for software assurance. We then move on to elaborate on the theoretical backgrounds behind our approach that motivate the need for the definition of a common language in the problem domain to address the issues related to software assurance. In the second part, we discuss our efforts on establishing secure systems assurance based on Certification and Accreditation activities, that include effective ways to understand the enforced organizational security requirements, gather relevant evidences, perceive related risks in the operational environment, and reveal their causal relationships with other domain concepts.
