The lecture Role-based Software Infrastructures is offered for all students of DFG Research Training Group Role-based Software Infrastructures for Continuous-Context-Sensitive Systems (RoSI) and anyone who is interested. RoSI’s central research goal is to develop software-infrastructures that will adapt automatically to changes of the context. This has to happen during the whole lifetime of a software – not only in the process of modelling but also of programming and installation. Potential application fields are the future smart grid, cyber-physical systems in home, traffic, factories, and context-sensitive search engines. In their talks the invited speakers and Principal Investigators of RoSI will focus on various aspects of RoSI and connected topic clusters.
