Self-adapting systems, Requirements Engineering, Software Evolution

Software has gained an increasing role and impact all aspects of our life. On the other hand, along with the increasing diversity and complexity of user requests and of the environment surrounding software, continuous building and providing of flexible non-contradictory software has become really difficult due to the incessant changes of user requirements and environment. On this background, we promote research concerning requirements engineering designed for proper gaining and analysis of software requirements, and self-adaptive systems, which adapt to the environment by autonomously changing their configuration. Recently we focused on goal modeling, which enables a structural description of requirements, and we are conducting research on building techniques of self-adapting system using goal modeling and software evolution (modification) techniques based on goal modeling.
