Software Product-Line Engineering for Sustainable, Long-lived Systems

Location: Meeting Room 10, 2nd Floor, JLB
Time: 12:30pm - 13:45pm
Speaker(s): Prof Robyn Lutz - Iowa State University

This presentation first gives a snapshot of central ideas and accomplishments in several key research areas for software product lines. It then describes some problems that are important and feasible to solve in the next decade, where results will be used to good effect in actual systems. We then focus more specifically on autonomous and safety-critical software product lines that must evolve over time, and discuss what recent research results mean for designing sustainable, long-lived systems. BIO: Robyn Lutz is a professor of computer science at Iowa State University, Ames, IA, USA, and a member of the software system engineering group at Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. Her research interests include software engineering of safety-critical systems, product lines, and specifying and verifying requirements for autonomous systems and, more recently, DNA computing.
