Key Features

In the Software Design & Analysis Laboratory, we conduct research on the methods and technologies which support the design / development of software and Cloud computing systems. Our main focus is on the analysis and improvement of the software development process. Software technology increasingly present in our daily lives, including various software embedded machinery and electronic devices for home or mobile telephones and social infrastructures represented by Cloud computing systems.
