Next Generation Technology for Global Software Development (NexGSD)

The software development paradigm is changing with the rise of geographically distributed, global software development (GSD). Increasingly, organizations shift all or part of their software development offshore. Several studies show that compared to co‐located projects, GSD projects are more likely to be unsuccessful due to geographical, temporal, and cultural distances, which hampers close collaboration.

Collaborative MiniGrid

The “Collaborative Mini-Grids for Prediction of Viral RNA Structure and Evolution” project (in short: Mini-Grid project) aimed at designing a voluntary, peer-to-peer software architecture for executing parallelized bioinformatics algorithms, which makes research into RNA-based diseases like HIV, SARS, and bird flu more efficient than with current approaches. The project also studied how users can become aware of such an infrastructure, and designs the future technologies for biologist to use in the lab.

The MONARCA project was an EU FP7 STREP project (2010–14) involving 13 partners, including the IT University of Copenhagen and the Psychiatric Center Copenhagen (‘Rigshospitalet’) . The goal was to;

“…develop and validate solutions for multi-parametric, long term monitoring of behavioural and physiological information for bipolar disorder”

Context-Based Workplace Awareness (AWARE)

Maintaining social awareness of the working context of fellow co-workers is crucial to successful cooperation. For mobile, non co-located workers, however, this social awareness is hard to maintain. In this research we are working with the concept of Context-Based Workplace Awareness , which denotes how context-aware computing can be used to facilitate people with an awareness of the unfolding of work in a workplace.
