An interview en la Gazette - 3 questions à Nelly Bencomo here.

Masters student intern (6 months, starting early 2012) on Runtime Representation of Requirements for Self-adaptive Systems: see ad.(TAKEN)


I am a Marie Curie Fellow at INRIA Paris - Roquencourt. My Marie-Curie project is called Requirements-aware Systems ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) and more infor can be found here.

Before that I was a Senior Research Associate in the School of Computing & Communications in Lancaster University (UK) where I also got my PhD and where I am a Visiting Researcher. My old web page in Lancaster University is here.

I am interested in all aspects of software modelling and specially the application of model-driven techniques, during the development and operation of dynamically adaptive systems. I am particularly interested in what I call models©run.time, the use of models and model-driven techniques during runtime. Models can be used, for example, to check correctness and consult the current state of a system during execution. A key benefit is that models can be used to offer a richer semantic support for runtime decision-making related to system adaptation and other runtime concerns. The use of reflection is crucial in order to have a self-representation of the system that can be consulted in operation. I believe that models©run.time has potential for the development systems that must adapt dynamically to their environment Adaptive Systems, from Requirements through to Implementation.

I particularly support the focus on research in areas that span different areas of research to exploit connections and links. In doing so, I have contributed to the modelling of distributed adaptive systems in the Middleware Research Group at Lancaster and in the past I also applied Software Engineering and Discrete Event Simulation concepts when I worked for the Operational Research group at the Universidad Central de Venezuela.

I am also interested in giving some space to serendipity, an aspect of research that sometimes is forgotten.

Earlier I was a Lecturer (awarded tenure 2002) in the Computing Schoolat the Universidad Central de Venezuela
