GAMES (Green Active Management of Energy in IT Service centres)
FP7-ICT-2009-6.3: ICT for Energy efficiency
Period: 36 months from October 2009.
Target outcome: ICT services and software tools enhanced with energy features
Objective: The vision of the GAMES project is for a new generation of energy efficient IT Service Centres. The GAMES project will deliver an innovative framework of methodologies, Open Source ICT tools and services and energy efficiency assessment metrics, for the holistic energy-aware design and operations of next generation IT Service Centres. Main expected outcome will be to increase energy efficiency of IT Service Centres and reduce their global carbon footprint by 25% in the next five years.

MAESTRO Ontology Driven Automatic Web Service Composition (2007-2010), project funded by the Program IDEAS of CNCSIS of Romanian Ministry of Education and Research
The objective of this research project is to study and propose models, methods, algorithms, and techniques for automatic, ontology-driven web service composition. We aim at service annotation and dynamic discovery, the development of algorithms for service selection based on imposed quality of service criteria, research and propose strategies for planning the automatic composition and dynamic invocation of services. For testing, assessing, validating and comparing the results against other similar researches, a flexible experimental platform is under implementation.

ArhiNetIntegrated System for developing semantically-enhanced archive content (2007 – 2010), project funded by CNMP, Program 4 – Research partnership for priority domains.
This inter-disciplinary project addresses the study, development and management of interactive e-content for digital enhancement of cultural heritage. The project aims at the study and development of an integrated system for creating and managing archival content based on semantic enhancements. The domain ontology enhanced content allows for semantically relevant information retrieval. The project also aims at the development of an information mining subsystem and reasoning mechanisms to identify new correlations that will be added to the domain knowledge.

FOOD-TRACE - Integrated IT system for assuring traceability and quality control in food industry (2006 – 2008), CEEX project funded by MEC
This project aims to study and design an integrated IT system for food industry processing organizations, in response to the EU requirements regarding up-stream and down-stream internal and external food traceability and quality assurance. The internal traceability system model includes both the infrastructure for monitoring the processes executed on a food industry production line and the resources and services necessary to capture, classify, store and access data regarding product traceability and quality data associated with each manufacturing process. The external traceability model includes the necessary infrastructure and resources to trace the products along their life cycle. The traceability and quality information regarding the products and processes are accessible through Web Services to business partners and to the authorities and organizations for food quality. To ensure platform and language level interoperability and scalability the traceability system is modeled using SOA (Service Oriented Architecture)
