Thesis proposals for 2011-2012

Midas - A Declarative Multi-Touch Interaction Framework

The main goal of the Midas framework is to provide developers adequate software engineering abstractions to close the gap between the evolution in the multi-touch technology and software detection mechanisms. We advocate the use of a rule language which allows programmers to express gestures in a declarative way. Complex gestures which are extremely hard to be implemented in traditional approaches can be expressed in one or multiple rules which are easy to understand.

MobiCraNT - Second Generation Mobile Cross-media Applications - Scalability, Heterogeneity and Legacy

The MobiCraNT project aims at the development of software engineering principles and patterns for the development of mobile cross-media applications that operate in a heterogenous distributed setting and interact using cross-media technology.

Mobile Applications

In this research we concentrate on the development of mobile applications, i.e., applications that run on mobile devices (such as smart phones).
