SAL approach
Research Areas
Tune research themes
Exploit architectural models
according to domain needs
to meet domain needs
Application Domains
Recognize emerging needs
Develop concrete architectures
from project experience
to solve real problems

SAL activities
• from basic research to applications...
• and vice versa
• basic research
aimed at defining innovative architectural models
• pilot projects
aimed at developing prototypal platforms that both reify the devised models
and experiment emerging technologies
• applications
aimed at transferring the acquired knowledge into solutions of concrete
problems through tight collaboration with productive realities and final users
• experiences gained from applicative projects provide the
insight of emerging and critical issues, which influence the
SAL research themes

Software Architecture Laboratory
SAL research areas
• Complex IT systems are aware of…
– time
– space
– themselves
• Time awareness
– Reasoning about time
– Time-driven behavior
• Space awareness
– Locating objects in virtual spaces
– Behaving according to spatial location
• Self awareness: architectural reflection
– Observing and controlling the system itself: QoS, behaviour, resources
(power, MIPS, memory, bandwidth, devices...)
– Adaptive behavior via architectural reflection

Projects: some examples
• TRADE: Tracking RFID-based Agents in Distributed
Environments
The research project aims at defining innovative technologies, models,
algorithms, and solutions to support and improve some of the processes
involved in the Supply Chain. Activities focus on different sensor devices (RFID
and cameras) to obtain information from actual material flow.
