WG: Social Network Analysis

Project: AGNDA - Algorithmic aspects of Graph and Network Data Analysis

  • Funding: FP7-PEOPLE-2010-ITN
  • Status: Proposal
  • Date: 2010-10-01 to 2014-10-01
  • Contribution: 2,793,933
  • description:

    The objective of this research training network is to train a cohort of early stage researchers (ESRs) with expertise in computational aspects of the analysis and visualization of network data. These researchers will work with networks of data about entities and the relationships between them. We believe that research in data analysis in the coming years will be transformed by access to large-scaledata resources. This training network will address the development of computational techniques for the analysis, visualisation and exploitation of such network data. In particular the research will address datasets that are massive, multi-attribute and dynamic. The research will be driven by the requirements of network analysis in: • Social Media, • e-Commerce & Marketing and • Telecommunications & Computer Networks While these are three different application areas, at a data level the problems have similar structure and the practice of applying techniques developed in one area to the other is well established. To encourage interaction between the research strands and collaboration between consortium members we will focus the research on four technological challenges: • Visualization • Scalability • Trust & Security • Data Mining

Project: ICONCENTRIC: Individual and COmmunity-CENTRIC Mobile Network and Services

  • Funding: FP7-ICT-2009-5
  • Status: Active
  • Date: 2010-08-01 to 2013-02-01
  • Contribution: 4,469,274
  • description:

    We envision a near future in which a multitude of hand-held devices opportunistically establish direct wireless communication links. In fact, powerful hand-held devices are becoming increasingly popular, and these devices are typically endowed also with wireless technologies allowing direct communication between devices (e.g., Bluetooth). Individuals and links between their devices will constitute a new kind of network that we call Individual MObile NETwork (IMONET). IMONETs, potentially formed by a very large number of individuals, will be the result of the interplay of overlapping dynamic communities of people characterized by their interests and habits. In this project, we put forward the idea of characterizing an IMONET member by her/his community membership profile (CMP), a succinct, explicit representation of the various communities the individual belongs to. This novel notion allows social-aware optimization of traditional networking protocols through implementation of stateless, fully scalable primitives. Most importantly, CMPs allows designing innovative, community-based communication paradigms and services specifically designed for an IMONET user needs. Obviously, IMONETs must be devised as part of the Internet of the Future (IoF). This involves further design requirements to enable seamless integration with existing and new-coming, IPv6-based networks. On the other hand, IMONET integration within the IoF offers new opportunities to service/application providers. Summarizing, this project has the goal of: A) uncovering the fundamental structural properties of IMONETs through realization of large-scale experimental campaigns; B) designing novel community-based applications specifically designed to fulfill an IMONET user needs, and assess them in large-scale testbeds; C) building a suite of technical solutions allowing seamless IMONET integration into the IoF, and to efficiently and securely support the designed novel community-based applications.

  • description:

    Handling the complexity and observing the evolution of very large software systems needs the analysis of large complex data models and the creation of condensed views of the system. In the context of visualization, software metrics have been used to compute and enrich such condensed views. However, current techniques concentrate on visualizing data of one particular software release, providing insufficient support for visualizing data of several releases. The goal of this project is to exploit multi-dimensional navigation spaces to efficiently visualize evolving software systems.

Project: XtreemOS, Building and Promoting a Linux-based Operating System to Support Virtual Organizations for Next Generation Grids

  • Funding: European Community, Contract n° FP6-033576
  • Status: Active
  • Date: 2006-06-01 to 2010-05-31
  • Contribution: 14.2 MEuros
  • description:

    The XtreemOS operating system provides for Grids what a traditional operating system offers for a single computer: abstraction from the hardware and secure resource sharing between different users. It thus simplifies the work of users belonging to virtual organizations by giving them the illusion of using a traditional computer while removing the burden of complex resource management issues of a typical Grid environment. When a user runs an application on XtreemOS, the operating system automatically finds all resources necessary for the execution, configures user's credentials on the selected resources and starts the application. The XtreemOS operating system provides three major distributed services to users: application execution management (providing scalable resource discovery and job scheduling for distributed interactive applications), data management (accessing and storing data in XtreemFS, a POSIX-like file system spanning the Grid) and virtual organization management (building and operating dynamic virtual organizations).

  • Status: Active
  • Date: 2009-05-01 to 2012-04-30
  • Contribution: 1.385.000
  • description:

    The project "DGSI” is concerned with the conception and development of an interoperability layer for scheduling in service Grids, allowing the users of a community to distribute the workload among resources within the management domain of another community. For this purpose, the existing systems of different service Grids are connected to the interoperability layer within the context of this project. This approach ensures that the computing and storage resources existing in the core-D-Grid are sustainably available for use by all communities. The project also aims to assure users of quality guarantees for the execution of their workload, in collaboration with the SLA [Service Level Agreement] layer. Recognised public standards will be adhered to during development, so as to strengthen the interoperability of the D-Grid internationally.

Project: 257432 - FLARIS - FLexibility, Adaptability and Rigor In Service computing

  • Funding: FP7-ICT-2009-5
  • Status: Proposal
  • Date: 0000-00-00 to 0000-00-00
  • Contribution: 2,229,374
  • description:

    FLARIS aims to propose a new software engineering methodology, development techniques and support tools that can be used for systematic, large-scale provision and market segmentation of software services. To this aim, FLARIS proposes flexible modeling and design techniques with which ‘software service line organizations’ can develop novel classes of service-oriented applications that can be easily adapted to customer requirements and changes in the context in which, and while, they execute. By means of variability mechanisms that can be superposed on existing languages for service design according to policies and strategies defined by service providers, it will be possible to identify variability points that can be triggered at run time to increase adaptability and optimize the usage of resources. Rigorous modeling techniques and analysis and verification support tools will be developed that can assist organizations to plan optimize and control the quality of software service provision, both at design and run time. FLARIS' concrete objectives are: -Extend formal/semiformal existing notations and languages for service computing with notions of variability with which increased levels of flexibility and adaptability can be achieved in software service provision -Develop generic processes with which service application designers can introduce variability points according to production strategies and organizational policies -Define a rigorous semantics of variability over behavioral models of services that can support various design- and run-time analysis techniques -Develop verification techniques that are still effective over specifications with variability points, including situations when variability is triggered at run time -Release innovative deployment techniques for service lines and adaptive services -Define a methodology, notations and prototype tools with which industry can be reached for feedback on (and uptake of) FLARIS' results.

  • description:

    Networking undergoes drastic changes: the time of rather static communication over tightly controlled switched networks for limited purposes is over, while further adoption of Internet and other communication technologies in almost every private, economic and social sector together with new approaches towards very dynamic and open networked environments is overwhelming. Social networking, networked communities, cloud computing, Web X.0, mashups, or business process engineering, are only some trends which reflect this tendency of continuous interconnection and data provisioning. Today’s networked systems are challenged by various security threats, which are traditionally treated in terms of securing a system against attacks from direct system users. Because of increasing system interconnection this approach has to be broadened to address security issues from additional perspectives including middleware platforms, networking, access control, etc. One has to consider systems of networked systems, which may offer mobile or fixed access via Internet or other communication technologies. This trend applies to a set of domains such as transport (e.g. train control systems), medical (e.g. computer-based workflow systems for health care), automotive (e.g. car2X communication systems), or telecommunication (e.g. mobile networked systems, Web X.0 systems and applications). Many of these systems have critical requirements: their failure may endanger human life and the environment, imply serious damage to industrial and social infrastructures, jeopardize confidentiality and privacy, and undermine the viability of whole business sectors. While the interconnection of systems enables new functionalities and features, it also adds new dimensions of vulnerabilities. Security engineering is increasingly challenged by the openness, dynamics and distribution of networked systems: most verification and validation techniques for security have been developed in the framework of static or known configurations, with full or well-defined control of each component of the system. This is not sufficient in networked systems, where control and observation of remote (sub) systems are dynamically invoked over the network. DIAMONDS considers the particular issue of security testing of networked systems to validate the dependability of networked systems in face of malice, attack, error or mischance. We concentrate on specific issues to build trust for such systems by demonstrating the robustness and fault-tolerance of networked systems against attacks. DIAMONDS investigates security issues of industrial-scale networked systems from various domains (including banking, smart cards, IT, software radio, and defence electronics) to derive common principles and methods so as to enable efficient security testing methods of industrial relevance. DIAMONDS will leverage systematic, model-based testing and monitoring approaches for security testing to enable early testing, test correctness, test quantification, and test automation. Advanced model-based security testing methods will additionally enable the early identification of design vulnerabilities and efficient system/test design targeting security aspects. The DIAMONDS security test methodology will be adaptable to different multi-domain security standards, and enable a risk analysis-oriented test generation and risk assessments by evaluation of the test results. This will be the base for checking „security levels“ and for ready-for-deployment (sign off) decisions. DIAMONDS will develop a well-visible European security test methodology of industrial scale, which demonstrated to be successful for security-critical systems in different application domains. The project is based on the complementary, inter-disciplinary expertise and technologies of the partners from Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, and Spain, who have built competence through partnerships with industry and research in the various dimensions implied to address this issue: domain expertise, networked systems and services, security engineering, testing infrastructure, and model-based testing.

WG: Sensor Web

The ERCIM Sensor Web Group collaborated with a number of Industrial parties which culminated in a submission entitled eTaPAS (Engineering Trustworthy and Privacy Aware Mobile Wireless Sensor Network Infrastructures) This STREP proposal was submitted within FP7-ICT-2009-5 and it comprised of a consortium of ERCIM GEIE, University College Dublin, Masaryk University, University of Bern,, Trinity College Dublin, (All of whom are Sensor Web Working Group members) together with Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dellâ Informazione del CNR, Correlation Systems Ltd and Eurix Srl. The proposal addresses the core issue of WSN security. Article 8.1 of the European Convention on Human Rights states: Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondence. Until recently, such a provision was primarily concerned with explicit communication of an individual e.g. via post, telephone or email. However, technological advances in wireless networking components, integrated circuit fabrication and sensor technology have led to the emergence of millimetre scale devices that collectively form a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Such a system is capable of harvesting a wide range of information about users, the environment and objects and disseminating it to other nodes in the network to provide a number of services. Information transmitted in this manner can be of a personal and highly sensitive nature e.g. medical records, and so must be secured to ensure the privacy of the user’s is protected. The goal of this project is to engineer a trustworthy and privacy aware WSN infrastructure so that a user’s implicit communication is protected from attack while en-route to its destination. In addition, it will also protect the user’s privacy be ensuring the end-point; with whom the user is sharing their private information is trustworthy. Due to the remote operation and power limitations of the devices, the system must be able to operate for a reasonable period of time to be commercially viable. To this end this proposal would provide a framework, by which, the performance of a WSN can be certified in simulation, on real nodes and through the integration of simulated and real nodes. This proposal was successfully brought together and the coordinator was Professor Gregory O'Hare the Chair of the Sensor Web Working Group. The group are also indebted to the support afforded by the ERCIM central offices in this endeavour.

We are currently preparing a file for FP7-ICT-2009-6: AYAMA project under ERCIM management (Pierre Guisset, ERCIM Office Brussels): Open platform for personalised model of nanoaerosol-based drug delivery for distributed (COPD, asthma) bronchial diseases. The present proposal deals with patient-specific modelling and simulations (PSMS) of micro- and nanoaerosol transport in inhaled air and uptake by the respiratory epithelium. This study focuses on aerosol-based drug delivery for optimal aerosol administration. The major objective is then conceiving, designing, implementing, and operating a computer-aided medical decision platform to be used in clinical departments as well as, at mid-term and in collaboration with specialists (e.g., EC-sponsored toxocity consortia), a nanoparticle design and safety platform for regulation agencies.

In 2009, SERENE has decided to change its workshop dates. The new dates are April 13-16, 2010. Thus since the 2008 workshop was organised at the end of 2008, it has been decided to not organise a workshop in 2009. The 2010 workshop, will be help at Birkbeck College (London, United Kingdom). The home page is accessible at http://serene2010.uni.lu/.

WG: Software Evolution

In 2009, we started to prepare a special issue on "software evolution" that will be published in IEEE Software in the course of 2010. Since my last count, the number of PhDs defended in 2009 on the topic of software evolution by at least one of the WB member groups was 9. This number is an underestimate as the information is probably incomplete. All PhD theses can be accessed from our wiki pages. More details about our working group activities can be found on its wiki pages http://wiki.ercim.eu/wg/SoftwareEvolution If any more information is required, do not hesitate to contact Tom Mens, chair of the WG.
