I passed EECS department preliminary examinations (prelims in short) in December last year. Topic of my presentation was “State-of-the-art in Publish/Subscribe Middleware for Supporting Mobility”. Here is a copy of my survey paper.


MDDPro paper in ISAS 2007

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:10 pm by Administrator

I presented a paper in ISAS 2007 in University of New Hampshire, Durham. The title of the paper is MDDPro: Model-Driven Dependability Provisioning in Enterprise Distributed Real-time and Embedded Systems Here are the slides that I presented at the conference on 22nd May 2007.


Exporting my nifty, little programs!

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:23 am by Administrator

Over the years, I learned programming and nitty-gritty details of C/C++ programming languages by writing short programs and playing around with them. Many of these cool, useful programming tricks that I learned, I forget them especially when I need them the most. Thanks to Google Code, where I’m hosting all those nifty programs under cpptruths project.


New CoSMIC Installer

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:40 pm by Administrator

CoSMIC stands for Component Synthesis using Model Integrated Computing. CoSMIC comprises a collection of Domain Specific Modeling Languages (DSMLs) and model interpreters that apply MDD technologies to QoS-enabled component middleware technologies (e.g., EJB, CORBA Component Model). A New CoSMIC installer for Windows was completed today. Developing this installer using WiX was an exciting ride through the details of Windows Installer Framework, Windows side-by-side (SxS) assemblies, and version hell!

MDDPro: Model-Driven Dependability Provisioning in Enterprise Distributed Real-Time and Embedded Systems (Sumant Tambe, Jaiganesh Balasubramanian, Gokhale Aniruddha) was accepted in International Service Availability Symposium (ISAS) 2007, May 21-22, 2007, University of New Hampshire, Durham, New Hampshire, USA


My blog on advanced C++

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:49 am by Administrator

I spend my free time studying and reading advanced topics in C++. As my knowledge of C++ programming expands, I try to post innovative comments on my blog C++ Truths. I write on a variety of topics related to C++ such as OO patterns and idioms, generic programming, template meta-programming and C++ emerging standard C++0x. I have seen a couple of independent information sources mentioning about cpptruths. I believe, cpptruths has sizable number of subscribers (other than my friends!) spread across many web-based RSS aggregators.

30th of December, 2006 is one my most memorable days as I got engaged with my sweetheart Archana on that day. In the last 7 years, we shared a beautiful, strong bond of love, friendship, and togetherness. It now shines in the light of the sparkling rings. I thank god for all the wonderful time we could spend together. Here are the engagement snaps.


Research summary

Research Area Summary

My area of research pertains to the model-driven engineering of component-based distributed real-time and embedded (DRE) systems. Specifically, in this area, I have worked on modeling and provisioning different kinds of quality of service (QoS) in the standards-based middleware systems.

  • I was primarily involved in a project called NetQoPE, in which, I worked on modeling and provisioning network level QoS support in QoS-enabled component middleware for DRE systems. The modeling capabilities of the NetQoPE allow users to declaratively specify application QoS requirements in terms of network and computational needs. The annotated system models, in turn, are used to automatically generate deployment metadata that account for both network and host resources. Finally, the DRE middleware provisions network and host elements to enable and enforce the QoS decisions. A research paper was recently submitted to ICDCS’07 conference based on this work.
  • Availability modeling for DRE systems is another dimension of QoS that pertains to my research area, wherein modeling support was built to capture application’s dependability requirements in a declarative fashion. The model is used to auto-generate the placement of the system components to maximize availability. Automated deployment metadata generation alleviates many of the complexities involved in the development of highly available, fault-tolerant systems. I am working on a paper to be submitted to ISAS 07.
  • I have also worked on component behavior modeling using the formalism of Input/Output automaton. The modeling support allows us to capture the workload of the components in an abstract way such that it can be used to emulate the component’s resource consumption in a system without even having the actual component ready. A research paper was recently submitted to ECBS 07 conference based on this work.

My focus moving ahead will be on developing tools and algorithms to synthesize highly optimized, low footprint component middleware stacks that are configured with the multiple dimensions of QoS configurations required for DRE systems. I will also investigate the applicability of my ideas to other domains, such as high performance computing, to demonstrate the broader impact of my doctoral dissertation.
