Industrial Seminar on December 9th 2010 in Karlsruhe, Germany

Monday, November 8th, 2010

The third industrial semiar of the Q-ImPrESS project will take place in Karlsruhe on December 9th, 2010. The participation is free of charge.

The industrial seminar will, among others, address the topic of a balanced software design with respect to performance, reliability, and maintenance. Talks on the Q-ImPrESS method and high-quality software engineering are part of the program.

Industrial Seminar on November 30th 2010 in Dortmund, Germany

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

official invitation:

Service orientation for critical infrastructures

Introduction, evaluation and optimisation of service oriented architectures (SOA)

November 30th, 2010, 06:00pm (date changed!)
Freizeitzentrum West, Ritterstraße 20, Dortmund, Germany

Complex software systems nowadays are an integral part of products and services in a multitude of application fields. All of these systems need to be further developed over long periods of time. Service orientation brings the flexibility that is necessary for these systems to adapt themselves to changing requirements. Unfortunately, current standards for service oriented development do not support the analysis of software system regarding their quality of service aspects (e.g. response time behaviour, reliability, maintenance costs). As a result, lots of application domains cannot fully tap into the full potential of SOA.

This seminar addresses itself to software-architects, developers, analysts, quality controllers and technology scouts. These people are enabled to base their decisions to introduce or further develop service oriented architectures on a solid foundation and with it want to save additional expenses for costly reference implementations and prototypes.

Experts of the Q-ImPrESS project partner FZI, Research Center for Information Technology in Karlsruhe, and itemis in Pforzheim & Lünen give an introduction to the project, the latest findings, methods and tools. They demonstrate the use on the basis of 3 case studies in the fields of telecommunication, enterprise-applications and process automation. They also give a preview of further application scenarios.

We look forward to your participation and exchange of ideas.

The seminar is free of charge but a registration is required. If you would like to attend, please add yoursef to the list of attendees.

The Q-ImPrESS Project

The aim of the project is to enable service orientation in critical application domains with guaranteed quality of service. Example systems from the industry areas of telecommunication, enterprise-applications and process automation already demonstrate the benefits of the project development results for the service orientation.

The Q-ImPrESS project developed methods and tools which are interesting for all enterprises:

  • who want to plan the use of service orientation,
  • who currently use service oriented architectures,
  • who want to pursue further development and optimisation of service oriented architectures.

The developed methods and tools allow forecasting the quality of service, upon which the reachable quality of service can be optimized. For example, the hardware costs caused by over-provisioning (over-dimensioned resources) can be lowered.

The Q-ImPrESS consortium brings together leading European research groups in the field of quality assessment and -forecasting with leading providers of case studies and agile and highly innovative SMEs. An overview of the project partners can be found at the Q-ImPrESS Website.

Q-ImPrESS is an international research projects funded under the European Union’s “Seventh Framework Programme” (FP7).

CfP: Eclipse Summit Europe 2009

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

The Q-ImPrESS project consortium wishes to invite you to an upcoming dissemination event at the Eclipse Summit Europe (ESE) 2009 in Ludwigsburg, Germany (October 27 – 29).

Background: Eclipse has become one of the most important software development environments for the industry. But Eclipse is not only a good framework for commercial software development, but also very much for research activities. As Eclipse is open source software, it enables researchers in the field of software engineering to disseminate their results freely as ready-to-try prototypic plug-ins, which can be easily integrated not only into Eclipse itself, but also within Eclipse-based commercial software products (such as Rational Team Concert).

The Q-ImPrESS consortium in cooperation with the Eclipse Foundation wishes to promote Eclipse as a link between research and commercial software projects. Although on very short notice, the Eclipse Foundation has generously enabled us to organize activities for the upcoming ESE2009. We have the possibility to arrange for a poster wall, accompanied by a (unfortunately small due to time constraints) “Birds of a feather” event, which will create awareness for “Eclipse in research” and hopefully result in further continuous and sustainable activities. We would also like to present a variety of grant programs (such as FP7 or ITEA2) and show usable and Eclipse-based results of the respective research projects.

We would like to invite fellow research projects to contribute to this event by submitting
- project posters for individual research projects (max size: 115cm x 115cm)
- project presentations or screencasts (2-5 minutes, please add contact data, to be shown in an endless presentation loop)

Project information will be posted to the ESE website prior to the conference. Deadline for submission of these posters is Friday, October 9th – due to time constrains this deadline is sharp and no extension can be granted. It should be noted that at least one project member must be registered for the conference in order to display your poster. Please submit your project information directly to Allison Kelly from the Eclipse Foundation:

We are sorry that there is not very much time left until the deadline. However, we wanted to use this chance to create awareness in the research community as well as the Eclipse community, as we feel that there are great potential benefits for both sides.

We (the Q-ImPrESS consortium) would like to thank the Eclipse Foundation for generously making it possible to organize these events on very short notice.
