Next Generation Auditing: Data-assurance as a service

This project is a collaboration between Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC), Belastingdienst (National Tax Office), and Computational Auditing, is to enable research in the field of computational auditing.

Domain-Specific Languages: A Big Future for Small Programs

Software and programming have a brilliant past that has brought us the automation of many expected and unexpected human and societal activities ranging from banking and consumer electronics to mobile networking, search engines and social networks. The present of software is overwhelming: many software systems have sizes in the range of 10–100 million lines of source code and contain tens of thousands of errors that are yet to be discovered. We claim that software will only have a big future if software itself becomes smaller. Smaller software leads to higher software productivity (we have to write less) and higher software quality (quality guarantees become part of the language and not of the program).

This project is funded by NWO (the Dutch national science foundation).
