About

I am currently a postdoc affiliated with HASLabUniversity of Minho, working with Luís Barbosa. Until January 2016 I was also affiliated with DistrinetKU Leuven, working mainly with Danny Hughes and Dave Clarke. My work is mainly on coordination of distributed components, often associated to the Reo coordination language, and on formal approaches to software product line engineering. More recently I have been working with binding and component models for embedded devices in the context of the LooCI middleware and micro PnP.

I graduated in University of Minho, Portugal, for a 5 year degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. I studied abroad for 6 months as an Erasmus student in Bristol University, UK. I defended my PhD in Leiden University in May 2011, for my work carried in CWI, Amsterdam, in the group for Foundations of Software Engineering.

Abstract
Construction and analysis of distributed systems is difficult. Multiparty session types (MPST) constitute a method to make it easier. The idea is to use type checking to statically prove deadlock freedom and protocol compliance of communicating processes. In practice, the premier approach to apply the MPST method in combination with mainstream programming languages has been based on API generation. In this paper (pearl), we revisit and revise this approach. Regarding our “revisitation”, using Scala 3, we present the existing API generation approach, which is based on deterministic finite automata (DFA), in terms of both the existing states-as-classes encoding of DFAs as APIs, and a new states-as-type-parameters encoding; the latter leverages match types in Scala 3. Regarding our “revision”, also using Scala 3, we present a new API generation approach that is based on sets of pomsets instead of DFAs; it crucially leverages match types, too. Our fresh perspective allows us to avoid two forms of combinatorial explosion resulting from implementing concurrent subprotocols in the DFA-based approach. We implement our approach in a new API generation tool. © Guillermina Cledou, Luc Edixhoven, Sung-Shik Jongmans, and Jos Proena; licensed under Creative Commons License CC-BY 4.0
