ITTC Project

Verification of UML Meta-Models

Project Award Date: 04-11-2001


The MetaV project is developing tools and techniques for verification of UML meta models developed under the DARPA MoBIES program. UML meta models are used to describe the syntax and semantics of domain-specific modeling languages. Such models are then used to automatically synthesize domain specific editors. Verification at the meta level provides correctness assurances for the semantic descriptions of these domain-specific model editors. The specific objectives of this project are to:

    (i) develop meta-modeling methodologies and libraries to support meta-model verification,

    (ii) explore the use of traditional formal verification techniques on UML meta models, and

    (iii) explore verification of the results of meta-model composition.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
