Towards a Unified Environment for Model, Ontology and Service Engineering

Model-driven development, ontology-based knowledge representation and service oriented architectures are all becoming increasingly important paradigms for enterprise software engineering. However, at present there is no clear theory of how they relate to one another and how they can be used together to best advantages. Model-driven development and ontology-driven software engineering, in particular, are generally viewed as competing rather than complementary technologies. In this talk Colin Atkinson will first outline the key issues and principles involved in unifying these three paradigms and will then describe the core architecture of a tool that supports their synergistic integration in practical software engineering projects.


Colin Atkinson haelt einen B.Sc. in Mathematischer Physik von der Universitaet Nottingham und einen M.Sc. und Ph.D. in Informatik vom Imperial College London. Von 1991 bis 1997 war er Assistenzprofessor an der Universitaet Houston, von 1997 bis 2003 Professor an der Universitaet Kaiserslautern und Leiter der Gruppe Product-Line Engineering am Fraunhofer-Institut fuer Experimentelles Software Engineering. Seit 2003 ist er Ordinarius an der Universitaet Mannheim und hat den Lehrstuhl für Softwaretechnik inne. Seine Forschungsgruppe beteiligt sich aktuell z.B. an den Projekten Aristaflow (Component-oriented Development of Adaptive Process-oriented Enterprise Software), MORABIT (Mobile Resource Adaptive Built-In Test) und ROARS (Reuse Oriented Automated Reasoning Software). In diesem Vortrag berichtet Colin Atkinson ueber seine juengsten Forschungsergebnisse in den Bereichen Komponententechnologie und Modellbasierung.
Invited by a. Univ.-Prof. Dr Josef Kueng

The Computer Science Colloquium is organized by the Department of Coputer Science at JKU, the Österreichische Gesellschaft für Informatik (ÖGI) and the Österreichische Computergesellschaft (OCG).
