P rogram U nderstanding R e- E ngineering C alculi and A pplications Main Topics Composition and refinement calculi (for data, algorithms and architectures) Reverse engineering Techinques for system's analysis Transformational techniques Program visualization and animation Project Contributions Pointfree program transformation. Automated reasoning via pointfree calculi. Functional slicing techniques. Component identification in source code. Data refinement, strategic rewriting, program transformation, advanced type systems. Models and calculi for component coordination and refinement of architectural patterns Relational and strongly-typed foundations of database theory. Spreadsheet understanding. Two-level and coupled software transformations. Results All expected indicators largely surpassed Conference papers: 20 Journal papers & Book chapters: 16 Prototype tools and libraries: 5 PhDs thesis: 2 (concluded) + 6 (on going) A regular research seminar, the PUReCafe. 3 open research workshops New international partnerships with Oxford and Nottingham Universities (UK), CWI (NL), Peking University (China), IIST-UNU (Macau), Overture Project, among others. Follow-Up Initiatives The PURe project (2003 - 07) aims at the development of calculi and techniques for program understanding and reverse engineering, at both the algorithmic and the architectural levels. Research relevance: 1. Addresses a real problem of today's information technology: that of coping with legacy software; 2. Is an oportunity for the application of novel theoretical results developed in the area of formal methods and program calculi, to a domain which has become a serious concern for industry.
