Automated Software language and SOftware engineering


The ASSO research group focuses on automating the engineering of software (programming/modelling) languages and software by applying advanced computation and data manipulation.

The group pursues long-lasting research on the application of advanced computation and data manipulation to automate, systematize and make more flexible the engineering of software languages and software to increase software quality and productivity of software engineers. The key methodology is Model-Driven Engineering.

The distinctive focus of the ASSO group is multi-fold and includes: engineering of domain-specific languages (DSLs) and modelling languages (DSMLs), automated and seamless support for blended multi-notation editing of programs and models, innovative multi-step transpilation and compilation techniques for automatic generation of executable software from DS(M)Ls based on program and model transformation, software language and software engineering for robotics and the Internet-of-Things.

ASSO is a dynamic group with a variegated set of skills and knowledge in software language and software engineering, as well as theoretical computer science, with a common denominator being automatization of engineering phases. The group has a strong network of internal and external collaborations (both nationally and internationally).
