 Central aim of organisation
We investigate foundations and explore novel applications of technologies to the development of distributed services.

 Briefly describe your organisation
Our research is focused on technologies that enable the construction of advanced distributed applications and services. We are especially interested in dynamic distributed systems and (Web) services in active spaces. Such systems are composed from a heterogeneous set of already available and dynamically evolving set of components and services. Their execution structure is typically multi-tier. The components may be large such as databases, web servers and web browsers or small such as timers and sensors. We are currently concentrating on several areas of such dynamic systems and services: models and development methodologies, composition mechanisms, event-based communications, peer-to-peer communications, web-interface mechanisms, and security of transactions among clients and servers. We use the Internet as the primary infrastructure for our research.
