CUTTING-EDGE RESEARCH
UQAM’s Laboratory for Research on
Technology for E-commerce (LATECE) is
an institutional research centre that focuses on the technological aspects and
the business rules of software applications in the field of e-business. These
applications are unique because they im-
Led by professor Hafedh Mili, the LATECE brings together more than twenty
researchers from UQAM’s computer
science department and school of management (École des sciences de la gestion), as well as from ÉTS (École de technologie supérieure), UQAC (Université du
The LATECE boasts cutting-edge
expertise in e-business. Its research
focuses on the entire e-business software
development lifecycle, from the design of
underlying business processes to the
engineering of software systems, and the
post-deployment analysis of production
data. These multidisciplinary approaches

E-business software engineering
begins with the design and
modelling of the business processes
implemented by the applications.
Such processes are often complex,
inter-organizational, and include
conflicting quality requirements.
LATECE researchers develop tools
and techniques to help business
analysts design and model the
processes best suited to their
product/service, organization and
industry. The lab’s approach ensures
that business factors (such as
organizational policy, for instance)
are taken into account and
formalized.
Quality Software Design
In software engineering, quality can
be achieved by using recognized
development practices, such as
design patterns, or by assessing
whether software meets certain
quality criteria. LATECE members
have undertaken the research and
development of tools to implement
the best practices in object- and
service-oriented applications. The
LATECE’s mature and freely
accessible tools include the SOFA
tool (a platform for the analysis of
service-oriented applications), the Nit
language (robust object-oriented
programming), and the Oto
application (used by teachers to
correct programming assignments
automatically).

LATECE researchers are highly involved in
their field, and believe in knowledge

Besides doing precompetitive research on
behalf of its industrial partners, the lab
