Welcome to the Mobility Lab TWiki
The Monash University Centre for Distributed Systems and Software Engineering (DSSE) aims at advancing foundations, methods and practice of distributed systems and software engineering. The centre focuses on methods and tools for modeling, analysing, constructing and maintaining large distributed software systems. Areas of particular interest are component-based software engineering, software architecture, mobile systems, distributed real-time systems, databases, clusters and grid computing.
The centre was nominated the first research strength of the Faculty repeatedly since 1998 and has been the primary conduit for Monash's partnership in the Cooperative Research Centre for Enterprise Distributed Systems Technology (aka DSTC), a cooperative centre of universities, industry and government funded 1999-2006.
DSSE carries out research in foundations, methods, tools and environments for conceptualising, modelling, analysing, developing, maintaining and benchmarking large parallel, distributed and pervasive systems. DSSE aims to advance the foundations, methods and practice of distributed systems and software engineering. Its mission is to achieve internationally recognised research excellence through national and international competitive grants, high impact and quality publications, extensive international collaboration, product-oriented industry collaboration, focused research student and staff exchange and efficient and effective PhD student supervision.
research strengths include: GRID tools, e-Science, parallel computation, wireless solutions, mobile applications, software engineering platforms, multi-agent systems, context-aware intelligent environments, pervasive computing systems, high-performance computational infrastructure, distributed data management, sensor networks, service-oriented architectures, middleware, mobile networks, ubiquitous computing.
