Our main objective is to automatically compose and synthesize software diversity from design to runtime to address unpredictable evolutions of software-intensive systems. We address this objective through 4 main research axis: software language engineering, software variability, software adaptation and software diversification.
The research in DiverSE is organized around 4 research axis:
- Software Language Engineering to handle the diversity of languages used by the stakeholders involved in the construction of software-intensive systems
- Software Product Lines to address the diversity of features required by the different customers of these systems
- Distributed architecture and deployment to handle the diversity of runtime environments in which software has to run and adapt
- Software diversity and testing to enhance the resilience of software.
These four axis shares and leverage the scientific and technological results developed in the area of model-driven engineering in the last decade. This means that all our research activities are founded on sound abstractions to reason about specific aspects of software systems, compose different perspectives and automatically generate parts of the system.
