CHOReOS project

  • Project: CHOReOS
  • Title: Large Scale Choreographies for the Future Internet
  • Description: CHOReOS will implement a framework for scalable choreography development to enable domain experts to develop decentralized ultra-large scale (ULS) solutions composed of heterogeneous services that are adaptable and QoS (Quality-of-Service) aware. Prior to this, these solutions were only possible with the support of dedicated IT professionals to provide the skills needed for architectural design and software engineering. CHOReOS will deliver formally grounded abstractions and models, dynamic choreography-centric development processes, governance and service-oriented middleware manipulated via an Integrated Development Runtime Environment (IDRE) aimed at overcoming the ULS impact on software system development.

DIAMONDS project

  • Project: DIAMONDS
  • Title: Development and Industrial Application of Multi-Domain Security Testing Technologies
  • Description: DIAMONDS will enable efficient and automated security testing methods of industrial relevance for highly secure systems in multiple domains (incl. e.g. banking, transport or telecommunication). As pointed out by the Software Engineering Institute, US, 2009: “The security of a software-intensive system is directly related to the quality of its software”. In particular, over 90% of software security incidents are caused by attackers exploiting known software defects. DIAMONDS addresses this increasing need for systematic security testing methods by developing techniques and tools that can efficiently be used to secure networked applications in different domains.

FITTEST project

  • Project: FITTEST
  • Title: Future Internet Testing
  • Description: The overall aim of the FITTEST project to develop an integrated environment for automated testing, which can monitor the Future Internet application under test and adapt to the dynamic changes observed.
    FITTEST results will be evaluated with case studies using real Internet systems like virtual worlds, social networking, highly scalable service providers and a SaaS enabled CASE tool, that are highly relevant to the Future Internet vision.

  • Project: INGEOCLOUDS
  • Title: INspired GEOdata CLOUD Services
  • Description: The project aims at demonstrating the feasibility of employing a cloud-based infrastructure coupled with the necessary services to provide seamless access to geospatial public sector information, especially targeting the geological, geophysical and other geoscientific information. This kind of information possesses interesting characteristics like the size of the available data, the existing metadata descriptions (mostly according to the European Directive INSPIRE) and the current availability of related services that can be moved to the cloud.

IOT.EST project

  • Project: IOT.EST
  • Title: Internet of Things Environment for Service Creation and Testing
  • Description: IoT.est aims to develop a test-driven service creation environment (SCE) for Internet of Things enabled business services. The project will provide the means and tools to define and instantiate IoT services that exploit data across domain boundaries and facilitate run-time monitoring which enables autonomous service adaptation to environment/context and network parameter changes.

  • Project: MODACLOUDS
  • Title: MOdel-Driven Approach for design and execution of applications on multiple Clouds
  • Description: The main goal of MODAClouds is to provide methods, a decision support system, an open source IDE and run-time environment for the high-level design, early prototyping, semi-automatic code generation, and automatic deployment of applications on multi-Clouds with guaranteed QoS. Model-driven development combined with novel model-driven risk analysis and quality prediction will enable developers to specify Cloud-provider independent models enriched with quality parameters, implement these, perform quality prediction, monitor applications at run-time and optimize them based on the feedback, thus filling the gap between design and run-time. Additionally, MODAClouds provides techniques for data mapping and synchronization among multiple Clouds.

SUCRE project

  • Project: SUCRE
  • Title: SUpporting Cloud Research Exploitation
  • Description: Cloud Computing is now deemed the key computing paradigm for empowering distributed information systems and mainstream applications. The same holds for Open Source development models and software solutions. Their interrelation however remains not fully explored and exploited. SUCRE will discuss and identify the impediments on why open source cloud solutions have not been yet widely adopted. We will also examine how this adoption can be facilitated through an international dialogue on the “hot” topics of interoperability and data portability involving experts from both the EU and Japan.
    SUCRE will investigate and suggest means for reinforcing the adoption of open source cloud solutions by key stakeholders. We will engage two user communities whose future computing requirements could be very well served by open source cloud solutions, namely, the public sector and the industry that provides computing services to the health care sector. Both are of paramount societal importance and will serve as the SUCRE use-cases. SUCRE will produce a recommendation report with Open-Source Solutions for Interoperable Clouds in these two high-impact economic sectors, addressing issues related to interoperability and standards, including technological, societal, and legal aspects.
    Particular attention will be given to the interaction between academia and industry as well as among industry players. This will be reflected in the formation of the SUCRE EU – Japan Experts Group, as well as in our effort to bring together the researchers of tomorrow with industry and areas experts in the fields of the Internet of Services, Clouds and Open Source.
    Through the “5-step” integrated approach, SUCRE will set up an all-embracing, still focused, supporting mechanism for projects funded by the Software & Service Architectures and Infrastructures Unit, consisting of targeted workshops, an experts group, a young -researchers forum, publications and promotional material.
