21 Feb

Practical information

  • Date: 21. February 2019
  • Time: 14.00 - 17.00
  • Location: Campus Kongsberg, Classroom 1217


Interfaces play a central role in system development. Question is how to effectively describe interfaces? There are many relevant aspects for each interface, and there are many interface design aspects common to classes of interfaces. There are static aspects and dynamic aspects. There are evolvability aspects (how to expand, retire, upgrade, ..) and instrumentation aspects (how to manage, verify, certify, ...). We look for practices and experiences in describing interfaces and in using interface descriptions.

Attendance is free, but please sign up to allow us to facilitate for the number of participants.
