Prof. Siobhan Clarke was a keynote speaker at the European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA) 2018, held in Madrid, where she presented how modern software applications operating in changing environments, can cope with the inherent complexities introduced by such environments: “Over the last decade, my team has explored the requirements for, and execution of, adaptation in a range of application types. We found that we naturally veered towards different software architecture styles in different circumstances – e.g., decentralised multi-agent systems when autonomous entities were required, or service-oriented computing when large-scale adaptive composition of behaviours was required. In this talk, I share our experiences with different classes of systems, and discuss open challenges for the research community.”

The proposed research will be focussed on investigating and demonstrating concepts of service-centric networks, in an urban setting, that aim at an embodiment of sensing, communication and computing based on cloud computing principles.
The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Oisín Quinn, officially launched Trinity’s new, multi-disciplinary Research Centre, ‘Future Cities’, which will drive and inspire new ways of thinking about smart and sustainable cities. Speaking at the launch, the Lord Mayor welcomed the initiative. “There is a trend across the world towards cities. Successful cities are growing at a phenomenal rate. Dublin must do everything it can to position itself to be able to compete with other cities. I am very excited by this unique initiative to establish a Future Cities Centre in TCD”.
