SENSORIA software engineering project wraps up
The aim of SENSORIA was "to develop a novel comprehensive approach to the engineering of software systems for service-oriented architectures where foundational theories, techniques and methods are fully integrated in a pragmatic software engineering approach." There is a lot more information on the SENSORIA website but, honestly, only follow the link if you understood that last bit.
Leicester’s Department of Computer Science received €740,000 from the funding pot, with four academic staff involved, together with five Research Assistants and three PhD students. A number of MSc students have based their final year projects around SENSORIA and more are expected to do so in the future. Across the whole project, the quantifiable outcomes include 650 published papers, 24 PhDs, 27 new software tools and three spin-out companies.
The final project review took place in Munich over 23-24 February, immediately prior to the Trustworthy Global Computing 2010 symposium. Our picture shows CEC Project Officer, Wide Hogenhout, loudly proclaiming the official end of the project.
