You ‘d like to contribute as a researcher? Join our IT for Innovation Services department

The IT for Innovative Services (ITIS) department, with its 100 researchers and engineers, focuses on the digital transformation of operations in organizations with traditional environments and digital ecosystems, with the aim of improving their performance and innovation capacity. The common thread throughout ITIS is to develop the most efficient use of big data to ensure the most appropriate decision-making processes.

The department relies on the Data Analytics Platform: a hybrid infrastructure covering the entire range of data analytics activities. The platform is based on three pillars: a high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, a cognitive analytics pillar and an interactive visualization wall (Viswall).


Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

You will be contributing to the development of new domain-specific languages (DSLs) to facilitate the specification of smart software systems as part of the BESSER project, aimed at building better smart software faster.

In particular, you’ll be working on designing new DSLs for different vertical domains, including cyber-physical systems. You’ll be studying the integration of DSLs for cross-domain platforms and the right modelling primitives to enable the specification of smart requirements as part of such DSLs.


You will be in charge of:

  • Developing both the grammar/metamodel and the concrete syntax for the DSLs
  • Integrate them into the BESSER platform
  • Evaluate the usability and expressiveness of the DSLs by conducting empirical studies with end-users
  • Test existing language workbenches
  • Extend existing language workbenches to facilitate the implementation of the DSLs
  • Lead the writing of research papers and other dissemination materials around the new DSLs
  • Implement code-generators that transform models created using the DSLs to executable smart software components
