Seminário de ES: Software Design and Architecture: The once and future focus of software engineering

Richard Taylor (University of California, Irvine)

The design of software has been a focus of software engineering research since the field’s beginning. This talk explores key aspects of this research focus and shows why design will remain a principal focus. The intrinsic elements of software design, both process and product, are discussed: concept formation, use of experience, and means for representation, reasoning, and directing the design activity. Design is presented as being an activity engaged by a wide range of stakeholders, acting throughout most of a system’s lifecycle, making a set of key choices which constitute the application’s architecture.
Directions for design research are outlined, including:
(a) drawing lessons, inspiration, and techniques from design fields outside of computer science,
(b) emphasizing the design of application “character” (functionality and style) as well as the application’s structure, and
(c) expanding the notion of software to encompass the design of additional kinds of intangible complex artifacts.

Richard N. Taylor is a Professor of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of California at Irvine and a member of the Department of Informatics. He received the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1980. Professor Taylor is the Director of the Institute for Software Research, which is dedicated to fostering innovative basic and applied research in software and information technologies through partnerships with industry and government. He has served as chairman of ACM's Special Interest Group on Software Engineering, SIGSOFT; chairman of the steering committee for the International Conference on Software Engineering, was general chair of the 1999 International Joint Conference on Work Activities, Coordination, and Collaboration, and was general chair of the 2004 International Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering. He is general chair of the 2011 International Conference on Software Engineering.

His research interests are centered on software architectures, especially event-based and peer-to-peer systems, and development environments that support the design task. Along with Nenad Medvidovic and Eric Dashofy, he is the author of a forthcoming textbook on the topic of software architectures. He is really impressed with his graduate students, current and past, for their contributions to application-layer Internet protocols and to the technology of software architectures.

Taylor was a 1985 recipient of a Presidential Young Investigator Award. In 1998 he was recognized as an ACM Fellow and in 2005 was awarded the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Service Award. In 2008 he received the ICSE 2008 Most Influential Paper Award, for an ICSE 1998 paper which he co-authored with Peyman Oriezy and Nenad Medvidovic.

He is the international speaker of the II Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures and Reuse (SBCARS´2008), held in Porto Alegre, August 20-22, 2008 - http://www.inf.pucrs.br/sbcars2008
