TEMOS at ICSOFT 2023 in Rome

Quality Measurement of Functional Requirements (authors: David Šenkýř and prof. Petr Kroha) is a paper presented by David at the 19th International Conference on Software Technologies (ICSOFT 2023). In this paper, the authors summarize their previous research regarding detecting requirements smells in textual documents – ambiguity, incompleteness, and inconsistency. Following the previous results, the authors present a metric to measure the quality of textual functional requirements specifications. Additionally, they propose how a tool using nature language processing and semantic networks (such as our TEMOS) could support analysts in their work.

The poster is available in the conference program.

Data Stewardship Wizard Helps to Fight COVID-19

Data Stewardship Wizard (DSW) developed in CCMi has become part of the VODAN-in-a-box  – a FAIR data storage solution for COVID-19 data. The DSW serves as a “CRF Wizard” for entering patient data. DData is stored in the RDF triple-store and metadata in the FAIR Data Point, so the solution fully meets the FAIR principles, i.e. the data is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable, which is crucial for fighting  the pandemic.

The first VODAN-in-a-box installation took place at Kampala International University in Uganda.


During the 13th international conference ICSOFT on 26–28 June 2018 in Porto (Portugal) David Šenkýř presented a paper entitled Patterns in Textual Requirements Specification (authors: David a prof. Kroha). During the presentation, the TEMOS (Textual Modelling System) was presented as a tool processes textual software system requirements with an ability to generate a UML class diagram and alerting the user about ambiguity and inconsistency in the

ELIXIR-CZ Annual Meeting 2017

We participated in the ELIXIR-CZ Annual Conference 2017 in Třešť. We presented our work within the Interoperability platform, where we work on the international Data Stewardship Portal project and other projects such as ontology and UFO (A and B) application in the field of bone marrow donation. You can see our presentation below along with the photos from the event.

4th Annual Meeting of CCMi

On 24 October 2017, we held 4th annual meeting of the Centre for Conceptual Modelling and Implementation. Traditionally, during the initial formal part of the meeting participant presented themselves, their activity in the previous academic year and plans for the current one. Then we casually welcomed new members and discussed about various topics in the field of conceptual modeling, software engineering, cooperation, research and teaching students at our faculty…

ESUG17 and IWST17

Once again we’ve taken part in the traditional Smalltalk conference ESUG (European Smalltalk User Group), this time in Maribor, Slovenia.

During the conference, two of our students presented their work related to modeling and Pharo on the IWST17 workshop.

Jan Blizničenko followed up on his Master thesis and presented Kendrick epidemiological modeling on top of our OpenPonk platform. (presentation, paper)

Peter Uhnák presented an approach generating instance models for running systems, and live visualization and debugging of object structures. (presentation, paper).


NS Summer School ’17

Following our collaboration with the University of Antwerp (see our older post), two members of our research group, Marek Suchánek and Peter Uhnák, participated in the Normalized Systems Summer School 2017 in Antwerp. During this very exciting event they learned how to design, analyze, create and customize Normalized Systems and worked on their own projects related to the NS theory and tooling, specifically about visualization, evolvable documents and conceptual modelling. Together with Dr. Robert Pergl, prof. Jan Verelst and prof. Herwig Mannaert they also discussed further broadening and intensifying of the collaboration between CCMi & FIT CTU in Prague, the NSX spin-off and also Faculty of Applied Economics – the largest faculty of the University of Antwerp.

This opens new prospects of  interesting theses topics, research projects and other challenging opportunities. We want to repeat NS Summer School with more students again the next year, as well as to improve and deepen our collaboration continually over time.
