  • Industrial Data Algorithms and 
  • Assessment of improvement areas and countermeasures


1st MEASURE Platform evaluation by industrial partners

posted Sep 14, 2017, 7:02 AM by Alessandra Bagnato

1st MEASURE evaluation by industrial partners to be done until the end of September:

The MEASURE Platform is a web application which allows to collect, compute, store, analyse, and visualize measurements by execution of software metrics. It is developed inside the MEASURE project ( The project runs over several years [2016-2019] and in the first stage we developed the platform and also a module that allows to define measures (in SMM format).  

MEASURE industrial parters are currently evaluating our MEASURE Platform:

MEASURE - Measuring Software Engineering, Implementing a comprehensive set of tools for automated and continuous measurement is on GitHub!!

Check out our work and in particular our:

1) Repository of Measures implementations defined in SMM (Structured Metrics Meta-model) format, an executable OMG Standard which can be integrated to Measure Platform.  List of Measures Implementations :

2) Measure Platform is a web application which allow to collect , calculate , store and visualize measurements by execution of measures defined in SMM (Structured Metrics Metamodel)       

3) Measure Agent, The measure agent is a java application based on StringBoot which allow to register and execute Measure manager by the MeasurePlatform on client side Documentation :    

4) SMMMeasureApi, 
API allowing to define SMM measures which can be deployed on Measure Platform

    Provide Interfaces which has to be implemented to provide a Direct or a Derived measure
    Provide Interface and default implementation of measurements
    Provide helpers services to allow to package a SMM Measure

To define a new SMM Measure, please refered to documentation :

Open PhD Position

Formal Analysis of Software Energy Consumption

As part of its IT research activities, ICAM campus of Nantes has undertaken studies on software energy consumption, its factors and impacts on software engineering in order to improve its energy efficiency.

This work will be carried out within the research project MEASURE ( which aims at defining metrics-driven software engineering using novel metrics. Interesting collaborations could then be established with the different project partners.


Currently, energy consumption measurements concern binary codes only and these measurements are performed during the software testing phase. This PhD thesis aims at developing a reliable method for estimating software energy consumption from their source codes. Requirements for software energy consumption could then be verified at earlier development phases.


The objective of this PhD thesis consists in developing a methodology in order to elaborate power models for all software components from energy consumption measurement results of some software only. This should be achieved by the means of formal methods or formal models to analyze the software components. Results of this PhD thesis (prototypes, publications, etc.) will be shared within the MEASURE project.


A co-supervising is planned between the University of Nantes and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam).

Candidates profile

We are looking for a dedicated student:
  1. Master degree in Computer Science,
  2. Good knowledge on formal methods,
  3. Experience on software testing is a plus,
  4. Programming, modelling skills,
  5. Writing and communication skills in English.

Candidates must send their application (CV and cover letter) by email to Jérôme Rocheteau.

Salary: 32k€ per year
Workplace: Nantes and Amsterdam

ICAM is a university of general engineers that develops his research through 4 laboratories: Energy, Mechanic and Materials (LE2M), Electrical Engineering and Automation (GEA), Industrial Engineering and Computing. The different teams of ICAM are used to work in close co-operation with companies and external laboratories on upstream research projects in R&D and technology transfer.

Second IEEE International Workshop on Security Testing and Monitoring (STAM2016)

About STAM:

Distributed computer networked systems and services have become a crucial infrastructure element for the organization of modern society. These networks and services are required to be more and more open and new technology is designed to facilitate the inter-operation between these networks composed of heterogeneous, communicating devices. Since the environment may be potentially hostile and contain malicious components, it is crucial to define frameworks adapted to distributed systems to enforce security and privacy.

The STAM workshop tries to answer how vulnerability, intrusions and attacks modeling can help users understand the occurrence of malicious behaviors in order to avoid them, and what are the advantages and drawbacks of the existing models. At the same time, the workshop tries to understand how to solve the challenging security testing and monitoring problem given that testing distributed systems is a complex task and security will add new challenges and difficulties to be solved. 


Submission Deadline:

January 31st, 2016 extented to February 19th, 2016
Author Notification: March 21st, 2016
Camera-Ready Due: April 28th, 2016
