Home Area Networking Group

This group studies application creation and execution architectures for home systems, safety-critical systems and the ultimate pervasive system.

Reading Group

Our reading group meets every tuesday during term in SC01 or FN05 at 3:30 pm. Papers recently read are on our WIKI.

Reading group mission statement: "We look at methodology for automatically joining components together. Starting from a mixture of manually and automatically selected components, we consider automatic binding and automatic synthesis of glue and adaptors. We also aim to have the necessary information to reason about the correctness and consequences of the composition." .
