Social Network Analysis on Dynamic Digital Networks
A MediaBase is a large collection of Social Software artifacts collected by special purpose crawling software (perl scripts) managed in a relational database under a common schema and a set of analysis and visualization tools with web front-ends.
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 assume different roles within a project. An appealing factor about FOSS analysis is that almost the whole project management takes place in Web resources. Also 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.
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 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 and to share knowledge among the members of the project.

Internet Information Systems & Community Hosting
The joint Community of Bamiyan Development aims at bringing together experts from diverse disciplines in the area of preservation of the Bamiyan site in Afghanistan. We attempt to bridge the gaps between different generations, disciplines and cultures on a global scale.
i* is a goal-oriented modeling language developed by Eric Yu from the University of Toronto. The i* Wiki is intended to enable collaborative work on i* and related topics.
The SunSITE project at RWTH Aachen University started 1995 as a hosting system for open software and content. Today the SunSITE contains also information about science, culture and virtual communities. And we still run www and ftp servers giving access to the SunSITE Software Archive.
In this project we are creating and maintaining a software platform and a repository for multi-agent simulation systems. The platform will be used in interdisciplinary teaching and research at RWTH Aachen University.
