The RELEASeD laboratory is currently involved in the following research projects:

FRFC – Centre de Recherche en Adaptabilité Logicielle

This project is a research collaboration between UMONS (Pr. Tom Mens, spokesperson), FUNDP (Pr. Patrick Heymans) and UCL (Pr. Kim Mens), funded by the Fonds de la Recherche Fondamentale Collective (FRFC-FNRS). It aims mainly at increasing the collaboration between the involved universities, on the research theme of Software Adaptability.

This collaborative project between RELEASeD and Prof. Gabriela Arevalo at the Centro de Altos Estudios en Tecnología Informática – Universidad Abierta Interamericana, will study the appropriateness of metrics and thresholds to identify structural degradation in source code. Our labs have used previously Formal Concept Analysis to detect source code regularities as well as their violations. The goal of the project is to use this approach to identify key structural metrics to detect certain bad smells. The metrics will be compared against other approaches used to reverse engineer source code based on structural relations. The analysis would be done by cataloging metrics and bad smells found in Open Source projects (and if possible in commercial applications), evaluating the suitability of different metrics and their thresholds to express structural degradation, and automatically detecting the best combination of metrics to detect bad smells.

MoVES — Fundamental Issues in Software Engineering: Modelling, Verification and Evolution of Software

MoVES (P6/39) is part of the IAP-Phase VI Interuniversity Attraction Poles Programme funded by the Belgian State, Belgian Science Policy. The goal of MoVES is to establish and sustain a network of researchers, that perform high-quality research in the context of Modelling, Verification and Evolution of Software. It involves partners from each of the following Belgian universities: FUNDP, KUL, VUB, UA, UCL, ULB, ULg.

VariBru – Variability in Software-Intensive Product Development

VariBru is an ICT Impulse Program project funded by the Brussels Institute for Research and Innovation (INNOVIRIS). VariBru brings together experts from the Brussels research community to develop a portfolio of services to help software-intensive companies address their variability challenges.

This collaborative project between RELEASeD and Prof. Yann-Gaël Guéhéneuc at the École Polytechnique de Montréal, granted by the funding agency Wallonie-Bruxelles International, will study the effect of using source code regularities on software maintenance and evolution. Our labs have similar tools to provide support for maintenance tasks by detecting source code regularities, idioms, and patterns as well as their violations. The goal of the project is to compare these tools and combine their approaches. The comparison would be done in the context of software engineering courses by cataloging the regularities found in Open Source projects (and if possible in commercial applications), and evaluating the usefulness of these regularities for quality improvement and maintenance tasks.
