FAST: Fast and Advanced Storyboard Tools

FAST is a Small or Medium-scale Focused Research Collaborative Project (STREP) supported by the European Commission under its 7th Framework Programme. It started on 1st March 2008 and will come to an end officially on 31th March 2011. It has a total funding of €3,5 M (overall budget €5,5 M).

The main objective of the project is to create a new a visual programming environment that will facilitate the development of complex front-end gadgets, involving execution of relatively complex business processes that rely on back-end semantic Web services. The approach adopted will be user-centric rather than program-centric: instead of first building programs that orchestrate available semantic Web services and then try to figure out how to implement interaction with the users at given points of the process execution flow, programmers will start from the front-end gadgets that the user will see and interact with, and then, afterwards, they will visually establish the connection to back-end Web services going through process execution flows if necessary. The way programmers will visually establish this connection will follow an approach similar to what sequence diagrams in UML look like.
