Welcome to HASLab
"Improving Practice Through Theory"
Software technology is pre-scientific in its lack of an effective basis for predicting computers' behaviour. HASLab research aims at improving scientific standards in software design through rigorous methods and mathematical techniques.
HASLab researchers have a long tradition of linking their research to national and international industry partners, and a deep involvement in the department's teaching activities, at both the undergraduate and the postgraduate level.
Regular group's activities include a research seminar
that provides a stimulating meeting opportunity for the whole team, including post-grad (Ph.D and M.Sc) students.
