New LINE release: added BPMN and PMIF support

The new release (v 0.7) of LINE, our layered queueing network solver, provides initial support for the performance evaluation of BPMN collaboration diagrams. LINE reads the BPMN model in the standard BPMN XML format, augmented with timing information, and analyzes it by means of a model-to-model transformation to LQN models. We also added scripts to read PMIF models.

Project Collaboration with CloudBees

MeetMon is a undergraduate group project I recently supervised in collaboration (and with the generous support) of CloudBees, a popular platform-as-service provider.  MeetMon is a cloud-based mashup application that combines the Google Maps and APIs to display ongoing events in London. Congratulations to the group (Oana Cocarascu, Paulina Koch, Kalli Koulloufidou, Andreas Papageorgiou, Gergios Skouroupathis) for an excellent project and many thanks… Read more »
