BACTAC - Sherba

ECOT 831

A Framework for Pervasive Traceability
Graduate Student

Traceability relationships help stakeholders understand the many associations and dependencies that exist between software artifacts created during a software development project. Unfortunately, due to the heterogeneous nature of these artifacts, creating, maintaining, and viewing these relationships is extremely difficult. Currently, capturing these relationships is costly and error-prone.

We propose a new approach to traceability based on techniques from open hypermedia and information integration. Open hypermedia and information integration provide generic techniques for establishing, maintaining, and viewing relationships between software artifacts. Our approach customizes these techniques to allow the automated creation, maintenance, and viewing of traceability relationships in tools that software professionals are accustomed to using on a daily basis.

BACTAC, the Beverage And Chips Tuesday Afternoon Colloquium, is a weekly forum run by graduate students. The goal is provide an informal setting in which anyone can (basically) present anything. In the past, we have had practice talks for conferences and job interviews, research reports, juggle lessons (!), student representative reports, internship discussions, an introduction to ergonomics, and "pay attention to this when you are going to look for job" discussions.

BACTAC is meant to be an informal and social event to promote the interaction among graduate students. BACTAC is typically held every Tuesday, at 3:30pm, in room ECOT 831. Free munchies and drinks are provided.

Please email Caleb Phillips for more information or if you want to be a speaker.
