7 CR ST Programming Methods Group - CREST  Programming Methods Research Group at Abo Akademi 1984 –  Ralph Back, founder  Kaisa Sere  Joakim von Wright  Johan Lilius  Large number of Ph.D.s and post docs during the years  Decided to divide research group into five research labs 2002 –  Programming Methods Group continues as CREST: Centre for Reliable Software Technology

8 CR ST CREST  Center for Reliable Software Technology  Director: Ralph-Johan Back, vice director: Kaisa Sere  Focus: how to model, construct and analyze large reliable software intensive systems  ~50 researchers + a number of M.Sc students  CREST labs  Distributed systems lab: Kaisa Sere, Marina Walden, Elena Troubitsyna, Juha Plosila (UTU) (~ 20 res.)  Embedded systems lab: Johan Lilius (~ 10 res.)  Software construction lab: Ralph Back, Ivan Porres (~10 res)  Learning and reasoning lab: Ralph Back, Tapio Salakoski (UTU) (~ 10 res.)  Crest Center of Excellence in Research 2002 – 2007  Crest was on shortlist for CoE , but not selected  Reviews were excellent, but competition very strong

9 CR ST Main research directions  theoretical foundations of programming languages and programming methods  extending formal methods to new application areas  building computer supported tools for formal methods  studying the use of formal methods in the software construction process as a whole, and  case studies on how to apply formal methods

10 CR ST CREST  Research has essentially followed the original research plan, focusing on formal methods and their applications  Emphasis on practial applications and industrial cooperation has grown stronger  The four laboratories have grown strong and each now has its own clear profile and identity  The Mechanized Reasoning lab was reorganized after von Wright left, became Learning and Reasoning lab, which has worked out well  A new generation of senior researchers has stepped forward and are now actively carrying out research projects  External cooperation has become more extensive  External funding has grown considerably in , with TEKES, AoF and EU funding

11 CR ST CREST in numbers  Ph.D students (13 Ph.D. students)  Distributed Systems lab: 4 Ph.D  Petre, Ruksenas, Yan, Ilic  Embedded Systems lab: 3 Ph.D.  Virtanen, Björklund, Truscan  Learning and Reasoning lab: 2 Ph.D  Celiku, Solin  Software Construction lag: 5 Ph.D  Petre, Seceleanu, Milovanov, Preoteasa, Alanen

12 CR ST New research directions  teaching formal methods  systems biology  energy aware systems  model based testing  systems engineering  network oriented languages

13 CR ST Presentations of CREST research labs  Distributed systems lab: Kaisa Sere  Embedded systems lab: Johan Lilius  Software construction lab: Ralph Back  Learning and reasoning lab: Ralph Back
