Trip to LA-WEB / LIFIA

Tomorrow, I will be leaving to La Plata, Argentina for a short research visit at LIFIA group of the National University of La Plata, who is also working in the field of Web Engineering. The program includes a joined Seminar, where I will give a talk about the WebComposition Architecture Model. Directly after that, I will attend the LA-Web 2007 conference in Santiago de Chile to present our work on architecture changes in distributed Web applications.

ISWE Activities

During the past months, the International Society for Web Engineering (ISWE) has attracted several more members. We now have about 30 members from 13 countries. Moreover, the societies work is now organized in sub-groups called Activities, as can be seen on the ISWE homepage. This includes MDWEnet, an initiative started by a group of researchers that have been working on model-driven Web Engineering for the past few years.

New developments at DSS

At the beginning of the month, our group leader Martin Gaedke acquired his full professorship. The group has also been reinforced by a new member, Andreas Heil, who I have been working with before at the University of Karlsruhe. On the technical site, our homepage is just in the process of a major update, including the establishment of a consistent URL convention.

The new Semester

EDU activities

I’m back in office, just in time before the start of the new Semester. This time, I’ll be conducting a practical course on Web Engineering technologies, a joined seminar / pro-seminar on Web 2.0, and a lecture-related tutorial on the design of distributed systems. All courses will start in the second week of the semester.
