Research Projects

  • The Software Product Line Variability Modeling and Configuration Technique Research of Complex Integrated Software System: 2014 - Present
    Description: This project started in 2014 and will be last for 4 years. It is supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China. This project aims to facilitate the configuration procedure, reduce the configuration complexity and improve the configuration efficiency. Product line engineers are supposed to benefit from the results of this project.
  • An Innovative Approach for Longstanding Development and Maintenance of the Automated Cancer Registry System (MBE-CR): 2015.01 - Present
    Description: The innovation planned in this project is an add-on to the digitization project currently being undertaken by the Cancer Registry of Norway (CR). The project started in 2009 and aims to transform the current paper-based/manual system into an ICT-based Automated Cancer Registry System (ACRS). The planned innovation project aims to develop systematic, automated and cost-effective model-based approaches for ensuring the quality of the evolving ACRS system and therefore significantly improving the efficiency of the patient history registration process. This will positively affect all its end users, including researchers, patients, doctors, and government officials.
