Computer simulation is an important factor intoday’s disaster prevention procedures. Simulation codes assessthe evolution and impact of various physical phenomena indomains such as nuclear and environmental sciences, andultimately help saving lives. However, new and more computationallydemanding models, and new regulations for personneltraining have(More)
We propose an aspect-oriented approach for the development of simulation software aiming at increasing the flexibility, the rapidity of development, and maintainability of simulation software. The horizontal decomposition method is used to separate the core functionality of the simulation application from simulation-specific cross-cutting concerns like(More)
Processing smart grid data for analytics purposes brings about a series of privacy-related risks. In order to allow for the most suitable mitigation strategies, reasonable privacy risks need to be addressed by taking into consideration the perspective of each smart grid stakeholder separately. In this context, we use the notion of privacy concerns to(More)
Software architecture entails the making of architectural decisions based on a set of both functional and quality requirements, as well as trade-offs between them, which have to be considered to achieve design goals. Access to accumulated and documented architectural knowledge facilitates this process. In this paper, we present a set of tools that support(More)
In this work we advance the understanding of software eco-systems research by examining the structure and evolution of the R statistical computing open-source ecosystem. Our research attempts to shed light on the following intriguing question: what makes software ecosystems successful? The approach we follow is to perform a quantitative analysis of the R(More)
Anthropocentrism is an innate socio-cultural trait of human behavior, which influences our everyday activities and social interactions. For this reason, it is reasonable to assume that anthropocentrism also influences software design. We define anthropocentrism in software design as viewing and interpreting every software design aspect in terms of human(More)
System quality attributes (QAs) are often considered as the most important decision drivers. In this paper, motivated by the decision making in a smart-city software ecosystem, we extend our previous approach that integrates reusable architectural design decisions (ADDs) with the QAs, by integrating tactics that support quality-driven decision making. In(More)
