  • Mining in Free and Open Source Software Repositories

    One of the non-deniable success factors of FOSS projects presents a community established around it. The FOSS communities present dynamic ecologies: the participants are free to come and leave and have a potential to achieve different roles within their project. An appealing factor about FOSS analysis is that almost the whole project management takes place in Web resources. Additionally, the code and its evolution history are freely available for mining within revision control systems. The data collected over years and even decades within communities with up to hundred thousands of participants present a great unplugged pool for investigations.

  • Mobile Multimedia Cloud Computing

    Cloud computing envisions the notion of delivering software services and customizable hardware configurations to public access, similar how public utilities (electricity, water, etc.) are available to the common man. The cloud abstracts infrastructure complexities of servers, applications, data, and heterogeneous platforms, enabling users to plug-in at anytime from anywhere and utilizes storage and computing services as needed at the moment. The goal of our mobile multimedia cloud (i5Cloud) is to provide infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) for diverse services and applications in the domain of (mobile) multimedia and large-scale social network analysis.

  • The PICASO project

    The PICASO project is developing an ICT platform to support coordination of care plans for people diagnosed with co-occurring chronic diseases.

  • The XMPP Experience

    The Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is an open and extensible protocol for the exchange of XML data in near real-time. Although most use cases of the protocol are still coined by the protocol's instant messaging background, it is also interesting for a more general range of services, particularly lightweight mobile middleware. The goal of the project is to systematically design, implement, and evaluate XMPP related services in a community information system context, to share knowledge with other researchers active on XMPP and to contribute parts of our prototypes to the XMPP FLOSS community.
