MUSIC – Self-Adapting Applications for Mobile Users in Ubiquitous Computing Environments

MUSIC

MUSIC – Self-Adapting Applications for Mobile Users in Ubiquitous Computing Environments

Duration: 42 months (2016 - 2019)

Start: 1/10/2006

Project Website: https://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/seit/index.php?p=music

Principal Investigator: Γιώργος Παπαδόπουλος

Main Funding Source: European Commission, FP6

Total Cost: 638,415.52

MUSIC is a focused initiative that develops a comprehensive open-source software development framework that facilitates the development of self-adapting, reconfigurable software that seamlessly adapts to the highly dynamic user and execution context, and maintains a high level usefulness across context changes. Context-aware applications are capable of exploiting knowledge of external operating conditions, and they are self-adaptive if they adapt at runtime to varying contexts, like changing user needs and operating environments.

MUSIC provides a design methodology and distributed system architecture for the design and implementation of self-adapting applications in ubiquitous computing environments. This is complemented with enhanced modelling languages for the specification of context dependencies and adaptation capabilities, supported by model specification, validation and simulation tools. This platform is used to develop trial services, based on a set of challenging application scenarios with real market potential, having a central role: as sources of requirements, to assess technical adequacy of the results, and to promote the results.

MUSIC thus invites the user to take for granted a high level of service usability, reliability and responsiveness. The user will be released from the complex configuration and administration that are imposed on users by many applications today. Thus, MUSIC is not only about the immediate technical objectives of self-configuration of context-aware applications, but it represents a noteworthy response to the vision of autonomic computing as articulated by major industrial players.

MUSIC includes major industrial players in the mobile market, several SMEs (one IST prize winner) specialising in mobile services, organisations with expertise in the domains of the trial services, Universities, and research institutions. The duration of the project is 42 months, and the budget 14.5 M.

Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus. The Department has experienced significant growth over the last few years with strong groups in artificial intelligence, computer architecture, computer networks, data management, graphics and virtual reality, internet computing, software engineering and theoretical computer science. The Department offers a Bachelor degree in Computer Science with 7 different specializations as well as a number of Master degrees and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science.

The Department has a strong research infrastructure comprising high-performance clusters and storage area networks, cloud computing facilities, smart-phones and sensing devices and virtual reality equipment. Since 2005, our Department has been involved in more than 160 research projects funded from both the European Union and the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation with total funding of over 21.5 million euros.
