Offered Topics

Semantic Zoom for Web-based Modeling of Hierachically Structured Modules

Conceptual modeling is widely adopted in industrial practices, e.g., process, software, and systems modeling. Providing adequate and usable modeling tools is essential for the efficient adoption of modeling. With the Graphical Language Server Protocol (GLSP), it is now possible to realize rich, advanced opportunities for visualizing and interacting with conceptual models.

Similarity and Quality Metrics for Microservice and Web Service Architectures

Microservices Architectures (MSAs) have been widely adopted by industry in different domains to address various challenges, from the modernization of monolithic financial applications to large IoT systems. MSA is a compositional approach based on the arrangement of microservices, executing simple tasks and providing limited functionalities, which are put together to form a more complex system.

Surveys in Conceptual Modeling and Model-driven Software Engineering

Metamodeling platforms are at the core of the development of modelling tools for domain-specific and general-purpose modelling languages. Desktop applications are nowadays accompanied by browser-based environments. Similarly to the heterogeneity of modelling languages and the purpose they support we see also a heterogeneity in metamodeling platforms and the modelling purposes they support (e.

Enterprise Architecture Management

Enterprise architecture management (EAM) is an established discipline in the information science field. With the digitalization, established enterprises are challenged to face fierce competition, especially from new competitors joining the market in vast amounts of time.

Using Genetic Algorithms to Modularize Conceptual Models

Conceptual models often evolve into large and monolithic artifacts. This is a threat to comprehensibility and maintainability as the size of the resulting artefacts exceeds the cognitive processing capabilities of human beings.

Simulation and Analysis of Metamodel Designs

The construction of new metamodels is a complex and knowledge-intensive engineering activity. As of now, metamodel design is merely a creative and manual task with a lack of proper tooling support.

Metamodel specification techniques

Modeling language specifications are of paramount importance for modelers, researchers, and tool vendors. However, these specifications use different techniques for specifying a metamodel. There is no common standard for specifying a metamodel, neither in industry nor in academia, and the usefulness and expressiveness of different specification techniques has never been empirically evaluated.

Web Modeling

There is currently a large hype surrounding Web Modeling and the development of web-based modeling tools. In the context of this topic, several theses projects can be offered, ranging from the evaluation of different platforms enabling the development of web modeling tools, over the assessment of individual technologies used for the realization of such tools, up to the prototypical implementation and evaluation of a web modeling tool on a concrete platform.

Web IDEs & Language Server Protocol (LSP) – in collaboration with EclipseSource

There is currently a large hype surrounding Web IDEs and the language server protocol (LSP). LSP provides a very flexible and well-proven architecture for implementing textual editors. It allows to reuse editor implementations for different languages by decoupling editor implementations from language implementations in so-called language servers.



DEMO - Digital Platform Enterprise

During the last two decades the biggest business transformation was that digitalisation has enabled new forms of collaboration and value-provision by transiting from individual enterprises to digital platform enterprises. Resources are harnessed by opening the platform enterprise boundaries and providing an innovation space for third-parties to create add-on offerings as well as through the exploitation of network effects.
