At APL we conduct cross-disciplinary research on the areas including but not limited to large-scale distributed complex event processing, service choreography, automatic application composition and messaging middleware. Our studies can be applied to various fields such as Web of Things (WoT), real-time omni-channel marketing on O2O application platforms, situation-aware services, application integration and control through Enterprise Service Bus (ESB).

November 23rd, 2015: The paper titled "Planning the Transformation of Overlays" is accepted to appear at ACM SAC 2016 (DADS Track). This paper presents the collaborative work with Nathan Robinson, Sheila McIlraith, Arno Jacobsen (University of Toronto) and Vinod Muthusamy (IBM T. J. Watson Research Center). This work is about transforming a given overlay to an optimal one with the least possible disruption to the running service.

October 30th, 2015: Our demo paper "A System for Specification and Execution of WoT Applications over Voice" is accepted to appear at ACM/IFIP/USENIX Middleware 2015 conference. This work was done while Prof. Young Yoon was working at Samsung Electronics. APL is continuously advancing the system further.
