Distributed and Web-based Systems

Our research is focused on the enablement of seamless cross-domain interoperability between independently developed systems and applications in complex, dynamic, real-world environments.

In this respect, we envision the Web as a technology convergence platform and are interested in integration techniques that emphasize serendipitous reuse of data and functionality.

We are exploring how to use a Web-centric abstraction layer for platforms, protocols, communication patterns and data models, resulting in decentralized architectures that provide different kinds of interfaces with varying expressivity and enable dynamic vertical interface orientation for complex intersystem interactions.
