Open Reflective Infrastructure for Open Networks

Jointly funded by the Flemish Government and the Center for Web Research as part of a general programme for bilateral scientific collaboration, the ORION project spans the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Universidad de Chile.

The project builds upon previous contacts between both universities as part of the SENSO-network, and proposes scientific collaboration on Ambient-Oriented Programming.

Fact Sheet

Belgian Promotors : Theo D’Hondt & Wolfgang De Meuter
Chilean Promotor : Gonzalo Navarro

Duration: 1-jan-2006 till 31-dec-2007
Budget: approx. 38.000 EUR

Proposal

The ORION project brings together experts in the development of reflectively implemented language features for open networks of mobile devices and experts in partial behavioural reflection which work on techniques to optimize the use of reflective hooks while retaining a maximum of expressiveness. The goal of the project is to investigate how these research strengths can be combined to produce a praticable yet full-fledged open reflective infrastructure for open networks.

AmbientTalk is used as the virtual machine in which the work packages described in the project will be developed. Some of the work packages are service discovery abstractions, failure handling and garbage collection, all of which are currently pursued by researchers of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
