Other Interdisciplinary Research Collaborations

Four other software Interdisciplinary Research Collaborations (IRCs) were established in the year 2000:

Advanced Knowledge Technologies (AKT)
MIAS
EQUATOR
Ultrafast Photonics Collaboration (UPC)

Related Projects

These are some of the other Dependability related projects in which the partners are involved.

Resilience for Survivability in IST ( ReSIST )
     ReSIST is a Network of Excellence that integrates leading researchers active in the multidisciplinary domains of Dependability, Security, and Human Factors, in order that Europe will have a well-focused coherent set of research activities aimed at ensuring that future “ubiquitous computing systems” (the immense systems of ever-evolving networks of computers and mobile devices which are needed to support and provide Ambient Intelligence), have the necessary resilience and survivability, despite any residual development and physical faults, interaction mistakes, or malicious attacks and disruptions.

A Multi-Agency Service Environment ( AMASE )
    
    

Case Study of Participative Design
    
     This is case study of participative design in the Deliberate Self-Harm ward of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, led by Rob Procter.

Dependable Systems of Systems ( DSoS )
    

Design Environment for Global Applications ( DEGAS )
    

Diverse Software PrOject - 2 ( DISPO-2/3/.. )
     These projects on design diversity have been funded by British Energy under the U.K. nuclear safety research programme, at City University.

Diversity with Off- the-Shelf Components ( DOTS )
    
     DOTS is a joint project between Newcastle University and City University. It is an EPSRC funded project that will look at ways of using off-the-shelf components in diverse fault-tolerant systems.

EIFFEL : Cognition and Cooperation in Design ( EIFFEL )
    
    

Electronic Health Record demonstrator ( EHR )
    
    

Global Grid Forum
    
     There is possible interaction with the Global Grid Forum , in particular the DataGRID project and the Grid Forum Security area. We will investigate the applicability of research in this area to banking. We are in contact with QinetiQ and DSTL.

Home-use of ICT
    
     York has projects on the home-use of ICT funded by Daewoo Electronics and EPSRC which will provide further background to this project activity. Lancaster has a long and successful track record of commercial and public funded ethnographic work in domestic settings that can be drawn on in this research as well as experience of designing appropriate technology to meet the needs of older people.

Interdisciplinary Design and Evaluation of Dependability ( INDEED )
     INDEED is a long term, four year research project that started in July 2006. The aims of INDEED are to develop knowledge, methods and tools that contribute to the understanding of socio-technical system dependability, and that support developers of dependable systems. The project follows on from DIRC, which made remarkable progress across a number of areas.

Logic for UML
    

Malicious - and Accidental- Fault Tolerance for Internet Applications ( MAFTIA )
    

Validation of Graphically Elicited Multi-variate Probability Models for Safety Assessment of Computer-based Systems
    
     This project is an sponsored by EPSRC-ROPA (Realising Our Potential) and will investigate issues of feedback and validation associated with elicitation of expert judgements for BBNs. City University is participating in this project.
