Title : SHAGE: Self-managed
Software framework for Service Robot
Speaker : Professor

Seoul, Republic of Korea.
When: January 10, 10AM
Where: Woodward Hall 338 Conference room
Host: Dr. Seok-Won Lee
Behavioral, situational and environmental changes in complex
software, such as robot software, cannot be completely
captured in software design. To handle this dynamism,
self-managed software enables its services dynamically
adapted to various situations by reconfiguring its software
architecture during run-time. We have developed a practical
framework, called SHAGE (Self-Healing, Adaptive, and Growing
SoftwarE), to support self-managed software for intelligent
service robots. The SAHGE framework is composed of six main
elements: a situation monitor to identify internal and
external conditions of a software system, ontology-based
models to describe architecture and components, brokers to
find appropriate architectural reconfiguration patterns and
components for a situation, a reconfigurator to actually
change the architecture based on the selected
reconfiguration pattern and components, a decision
maker/learner to find the optimal solution of reconfiguring
software architecture for a situation, and repositories to
effectively manage and share architectural reconfiguration
patterns, components, and problem solving strategies. We
conducted an experiment of applying the framework to an
infotainment robot. The result of the experiment shows the
practicality and usefulness of the framework for the
intelligent service robots.

Software Assurance: Requirements Engineering Approach
Presented by Dr. Seok-Won
Lee and Robin Gandhi
3:00PM on Friday, March 31, 2006, 106 Woodward Hall :
Abstract: In the first part of our talk, we discuss recent
efforts from the Department of Homeland Security to create a common
body of knowledge for software assurance. We then move on to elaborate
on the theoretical backgrounds behind our approach that motivate the
need for the definition of a common language in the problem domain to
address the issues related to software assurance. In the second part,
we discuss our efforts on establishing secure systems assurance based
on Certification and Accreditation activities, that include effective
ways to understand the enforced organizational security requirements,
gather relevant evidences, perceive related risks in the operational
environment, and reveal their causal relationships with other domain
