Title: Configuration composition with dependencies
Presenter/host: Anna Ståhl and Jacob Gradén (master's students at SEMC)
The goal of the study is to allow creation of configurations in a simple and user-friendly manner (*). We will begin with a short overview of the situation and its challenges. We will then move on to a discussion about problems and possibilities with composition. Specifically, the question about how to combine components which may or may not depend on each other, to a single system - a complete and consistent configuration - is of interest.
We would also be very interested in hearing about any similar challenges or solutions you may have encountered, and any insights gained from them.
