Prof. Brian Henderson-Sellers, University of Technology, Sydney


17h15 Talk and Q/A

Afterwards you are invited to a refreshment.


The FAME project uses method engineering to construct a  
methodological approach for agent-oriented software development  
using, as a precursor, the object-oriented OPEN Process Framework.  
The repository of OO-focussed method fragments has been extended to  
support various agent-oriented methodological approaches. In this  
talk, I will show how method engineering provides an excellent base  
for constructing situation specific software engineering  
methodologies for both object and agent software development. Both  
OPF and FAME use an existing repository coupled to an appropriate  
metamodel (which in the near future will be the new ISO standard  
metamodel ISO24744, itself based on the OO concept of powertypes).  
This flexible, yet standardized repository supplies method fragments  
that are then configured to support specific projects. In addition,  
all existing, and new, OO and AO methodologies can be recreated, thus  
providing an industry strength resource for object-oriented and agent- 
oriented software development.


Brian Henderson-Sellers is Director of the Centre for Object  
Technology Applications and Research and Professor of Information  
Systems at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). He is author  
or editor of 27 books and is well-known for his work in object- 
oriented and agent-oriented methodologies (MOSES, COMMA, OPEN,  
OOSPICE, FAME), OO metrics and metamodelling. More recently, he has  
chaired workshops at OOPSLA and AOIS (Agent-Oriented information  
Systems workshop) on agent-oriented methodologies. He is Editor of  
the International Journal of Agent-Oriented Software Engineering and  
on the editorial board of Journal of Object Technology, Software and  
Systems Modelling and International Journal of Cognitive Informatics  
and Natural Intelligence. In July 2001, Professor Henderson-Sellers  
was awarded a Doctor of Science (DSc) from the University of London  
for his research contributions in object-oriented methodologies.
