ITTC Project

CAREER: Filling the Gaps in Domain-Specific Functional-Based Solutions High-Performance Execution

Project Award Date: 06-01-2014


Software engineering, at its heart, is about making compromises between the overall efficiency of an implementation and the clarity, agility and mantainability of the code base. This abstraction gap between intent and practice is especially acute during the development of high assurance or high performance software systems. The investigator believes that we can develop high-level models and efficient implementations concurrently under a single, semi-formal framework that bridges the abstraction gap with aggressive, user-assisted program refinement technology.

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.
