WG4 – Knowledge and technology transfer

T4.1. Connecting within ICT disciplines: Connecting resource-aware analysis with related ICT disciplines: Parallel programming can be complicated and the analysis of such programs even more so. The parallel programming community has devised informal and ad-hoc analysis techniques but these are neither general nor sound. CERCIRAS will focus on identifying such informal analysis techniques, and investigate how they might help construct more effective resource-aware analytical techniques. Other areas of ICT of interests include business process management, software quality and project management, while areas that might benefit from the results of CERCIRAS are IoT, CPS, Autonomous Systems, Robotics, (Self-)Adaptive Systems and Cyber Security.

T4.2. Connecting to non-ICT disciplines: As in T4.1, CERCIRAS will reach out to non-ICT disciplines: An impressive variety of methodologies, from the areas of mathematics, probability and statistical theory, could potentially be used for multi-resource-aware analysis. Researchers in system design are only familiar with few of these and the mathematical community is largely oblivious to applications of its theory to resource aware design. So far, most analysis techniques applied to computing systems have their roots in engineering and various branches of mathematics and computation theory. It is therefore worth exploring techniques other domains (e.g., economic theory). CERCIRAS will cross-educate these different communities via seminars, events and learning materials, to foster cross-pollination of ideas and results.

T4.3. Connecting and knowledge transfer to industry partners: Research results acquire value when put to practice for innovation. CERCIRAS will bring together academic and industrial actors inside and outside the consortium with the intention of problem-solving among these two sectors.
