June, 2009 Software Architecture Laboratory “Complicated” IT Systems Architecture role Experiment s Application Domains Models “Complex” Systems Models “Complex” Systems Projects Application Problems Application Problems Requirements Architecture Multi-paradigm Large scale Heterogeneous Adaptive Cost-effective Evolvable Reusable Mantainable...
June, 2009 Software Architecture Laboratory SAL approach Exploit architectural models to meet domain needs Develop concrete architectures to solve real problems Recognize emerging needs from project experience Tune research themes according to domain needs Application Domains Research Areas Projects
June, 2009 Software Architecture Laboratory SAL activities from basic research to applications... and vice versa basic research aimed at defining innovative architectural models pilot projects aimed at developing prototypal platforms that both reify the devised models and experiment emerging technologies applications aimed at transferring the acquired knowledge into solutions of concrete problems through tight collaboration with productive realities and final users experiences gained from applicative projects provide the insight of emerging and critical issues, which influence the SAL research themes
