12th June 2019 – Seminar By Nour Ali on Software architecture to Everything

Posted By admin on Jun 12, 2019 in Seminars


The BSEL seminar was held at WLFB 207/208 (2nd floor of Wilfred Brown) at 2:00PM.

A talk from Dr Nour Ali titled ‘Software architecture to Everything’ (slides can be found here).

Software architecture is the structure or structures of a software system. A software architecture of a system is, usually, represented by a model that graphically shows software elements and their interactions. Explicit software architectural models are used as critical knowledge to ensure the quality, understanding and evolution of systems.
In this talk, I will motivate you to use software architecture as a tool to manage software. I will demonstrate how we can combine software architecture with formal methods, static/dynamic analysis, optimization techniques and others. I will first start by showing the importance of an architectural model during the evolution and maintenance of a legacy system. I will then focus on architectural models of adaptable, distributed and mobile systems. I will also give you an overview of the latest projects I am working on such as the recovery of microservice architectures, the support of smart mobile and Internet of Things applications and the self-adaption to resource constraint environments.
