New International Research Partnership Projects

University of Calabria and MSC-LES along with University of Genoa, Liophant Simulation and MISS are working with NASA/KSC and Florida Institute of Technology, FIT to identify international research opportunities for the Human-Centered Design and Learning Institute being developed by NASA/KSC and  FIT. The International Research Partnership Project seeks to identify opportunities for research partnering among institutions in the US and abroad. The intention is to develop (1) small projects requiring less than 40 hours effort, (2) medium projects of 8-20 weeks for faculty, students, interns or employees, (3) international exchange possibilities and, (4) large projects that may require multi-organizational funding. For further information please contact Priscilla Elfrey (, Francesco Longo ( or Antonio Cimino (


Invitation for PhD Students: share your research ideas

If you are a PhD students or if you are already graduated and if you want to share your research interests, increase the visibility of your research activities and institutions, seek for new collaborations with partners all over the world, please send a brief description (maximum 10 rows) of your PhD thesis, we will be very glad to publish it in the upcoming issue of the newsletter.

On going M&S Research Activities at University of Bordeaux 1, Production Engineering Team (by Greg  Zacharewicz)

One of the actual goals of the MEP team from GRAI at IMS/LAPS in University of Bordeaux 1 is to propose an M&S platform for data exchange between heterogeneous enterprises, using the theory of enterprise interoperability. This software environment must establish interoperability by data reconciliation, transformation and workflow driving. In particular, a classification of existing platform development lifecycle methodologies (High Level Architecture FEderation DEvelopment Process (HLA FEDEP), Model Driven Architecture (MDA), Model Driven Interoperability (MDI) ...) is being established by researchers of GRAI and a two side’s method (including reverse steps to capitalize from platforms already developed to facilitate re-involving them in a new project) is under the scope of our study.

The GRAI team tries to address interoperability problems at each step of the development life cycle of enterprise Information System. The question is: How to transform interoperability concepts, requirements to concrete implementation of software open to interoperability? This methodology is involved in the SIMID project that aims to design and develop a secure and highly scalable Information system to make available via Internet services with high value for those working in aviation maintenance.
