LASER at CIBSE 2019

The LASER team presented two papers at CIBSE 2019, the XXII Ibero-American Conference on Software Engineering, in Havana, Cuba.

On Wednesday, Caique presented the paper Towards a healthier collaboration at the business-development interface, in which the problem of achieving a better collaboration between the business and the development staff within a software project is investigated.

On Thursday, Breno presented the paper The RoCS Framework to Support the Development of Autonomous Robots, in which we investigated the need for software architectures and development frameworks in the robotics domain, in a joint work with the Laboratory of Robotics and Cognitive Systems (LaRoCS). We are also happy to mention that this paper was best paper candidate for the Software Engineering Track (SET), and it finally placed 3rd.

ADVANCE Kick-Off Meeting

The “Addressing Verification and Validation Challenges in Future Cyber-Physical Systems” (ADVANCE) research project has started this year with the participation of researchers from LASER, working on the challenges of future cyber-physical systems.

ADVANCE is an Horizon 2020 project, funded by the European Union under the Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) scheme, in which research is performed by exchange of researchers between the partners and transfer of knowledge activities.

The Kick-Off meeting of the project and first Transfer of Knowledge workshop were held in Florence, Italy, in the beginning of February 2019.

LASER (Laboratory for Software Engineering and Reliability) is a research lab of the Institute of Computing at UNICAMP. Involving both theoretical and applied research, the LASER is interested in topics having a high impact on the Software and Systems Engineering research communities, as well as their application and transference to Industry.

Areas of Interest
Software Architecture and Microservices
Continuous Software Engineering (Agile, DevOps, and Lean)
Experimental Software Engineering
Model-Driven Engineering (MDA/MDE)
Software Testing (Performance, Robustness, and Security)
Performance and Dependability Evaluation
Fault-tolerant/Resilient Systems

Here, we have a presentation about lab activities (Portuguese only).
