This research center, funded by the "Fonds de la Recherche Fondamentale Collective" of the national science foundation of Wallonia, Belgium (FNRS) reconciles some of the common research interests of its three promoters in the areas of software evolution and logic meta programming. More specifically, the center will study formalisms for automated software restructuring, based on advanced refactoring and composition techniques, transformation formalisms and intensional views. It will enable the promoters to intensify existing collaborations between their research teams, and to forge new research links and collaborations with other universities in Belgium and abroad (in the research domains of software restructuring, as well as software evolution in general).
In the context of this research project we want to develop, with the help of our external collaborators, well-founded formalisms, techniques and tools to support and integrate software restructuring in the software development process. We will also take a look at software restructuring in an aspect-oriented context (migration of legacy software to aspect-oriented software, as well as evolution and restructuring of aspect-oriented software itself).
For a more detailed description of the goals and motivations of this research project, we refer to the French Version of this page. You can also contact the spokesman of this project for more information.
