The Software Engineering & Architecture group from the RUG Computing Science department received the Best Paper award of WCRE 2008 for their work in collaboration with Philips Healthcare. This prestigious award is presented every year to a research paper that is expected to have a long-lasting impact on the field. The work was conducted as part of the Darwin project, and focuses on reverse-engineering the execution architecture of a large complex system: the Philips MRI scanner.
Recovering information from software and systems
The members of the RUG research group, Dr. Paris Avgeriou and Trosky B. Callo Arias (Faculty of Science and Engineering), and Dr. Pierre America from Philips Research received the award at the 15^th Working Conference on Reverse Engineering (WCRE) in Antwerp (Belgium). The WCRE is the top conference in this field, and is focused on the theory and practice of recovering information from existing software and systems. Their paper’s title is ‘Analyzing the Actual Execution of a Large Software-Intensive System for Dependencies’.
The work was conducted as part of the Darwin project, a research project on evolvability of software-intensive systems managed by the Embedded Systems Institute and conducted in collaboration with Philips Healthcare. The research is performed empirically through experimentation in a real complex system: the Philips MRI System. MRI scanner technology is relatively young and is increasing in popularity as products become more powerful and effective for clinical diagnosis and therapy in many areas.
8.000.000 Lines of Code
Today’s MRI scanners are complex systems that contain about 8.000.000 Lines of Code (LoC) which are developed and maintained by many people all around the world. The aim of the project is to develop architectures, methods and tools for optimizing system evolvability, i.e., the ability of a system to evolve easily in the face of changing requirements.
