Abstract :
Software engineering is concerned about techniques and tools to build software.
In this field, software architectures have been proposed as a formal solution to the increasing complexity of software systems,
elaborating on the idea of building composite systems out of reusable components that interact through well-defined provided and required interfaces.
I will present in this talk my contributions to the development of composite systems with formal techniques for adaptation, automatic composition, and testing.
Being developed by different third-parties, components to be reused in a composition often present mismatch.
Adaptation is concerned about the automatic generation of software pieces, called adaptors, that solve in a non-intrusive way such mismatch.
Going further, automatic composition addresses the (automatic) generation of composite systems
being given a set of reusable components and an abstract description of the composite system's requirements.
Finally, formal testing enables one to check for the conformance between the requirement and an implementation of a component.
Since basic interfaces are insufficient to address issues such as composition correctness, I support in my work components equipped with behavioral interfaces,
describing not only what is provided or required by a component, but also the related usage protocols.

DECODING THE PLATFORM SOCIETY: ORGANIZATIONS, MARKETS AND NETWORKS IN THE DIGITAL ECONOMY
The original manuscript conceptualizes the recent rise of digital platforms along three main dimensions: their nature of coordination devices fueled by data, the ensuing transformations of labor, and the accompanying promises of societal innovation. The overall ambition is to unpack the coordination role of the platform and where it stands in the horizon of the classical firm – market duality. It is also to precisely understand how it uses data to do so, where it drives labor, and how it accommodates socially innovative projects. I extend this analysis to show continuity between today’s society dominated by platforms and the “organizational society”, claiming that platforms are organized structures that distribute resources, produce asymmetries of wealth and power, and push social innovation to the periphery of the system. I discuss the policy implications of these tendencies and propose avenues for follow-up research.
