Software and data need to be used in an appropriate way, so that the intellectual property of the software creators and the data privacy of the end users are preserved. On the one hand, using open source software requires special care, as open source software is licensed under specific licenses that define how the software can be used and what is prohibited. On the other hand, when creating software and services, it is vital to define which data are used by the service provider and any third parties to ensure that users are well informed in respect to the privacy of their data. This talk will focus on the above areas, organized in two parts: 1) understanding the conditions under which open software can be used and how, and 2) defining how user data are expected to be used in services, contributing to privacy protection. In the first part, three approaches for modeling open source licensing, extracting license terms from license text (FOSS-LTE) and for recommending licenses to software engineers (findOSSLicense) will be presented, whereas in the second part, an approach for modeling service needs concerning data use will be presented (Linked USDL Privacy). The talk will be concluded with an outline of future research agenda.

Short Bio:
Georgia M. Kapitsaki is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, UCY. She received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2009, her M.Sc. in Technoeconomical Systems and her Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering. She has worked as a research associate at NTUA, as a laboratory assistant at the Technical Institute of Piraeus, and as a telecommunications engineer and a software engineer in the industry in Germany. She has worked on European research projects (e.g. PaaSage, VALS), and has been the principal investigator of national and EU funded research projects (e.g. CYberSafety, TAMIT). She has been involved in the organization of international conferences (e.g. program co-chair ICSR 2016, tutorials chair SAC 2019). She has served as member of the program committee of international conferences (e.g. WISE 2020, ICWS 2020, ENASE 2020). She has published over 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals, and scientific conferences and workshops. She has received the best paper award in ICSR 2015 and in the doctoral symposium of MODELS 2008. Her research interests include Software Engineering, Open source software and reuse, Privacy Enhancing Technologies and Context-aware Applications.

This colloquium is part of the speaker's procedure for evaluation and promotion from Assistant Professor to Associate Professor.
