Organisation profile

The SQUARE group does research on theorymethodsand tools that could improve the quality of Software:

  • We conduct studies of programs (code) which aim to identify problems in Software;
  • We conduct studies of programmers (humans) which aim to identify problems with the process of developing Software;
  • We develop and assess tools for programs (code) aimed directly at improving the quality of Software; and
  • We develop and assess tools for programmers (humans) aimed at indirectly improving the quality of Software.
