FIB Alumni award to the best Degree Project

Josep Sànchez Ferreres, won the 2015-2016 FIB Alumni award to the best Degree Project.

The work, entitled Comparison of Textual and Formal descriptions of Processing Models consists of an algorithm for aligning sentences of a textual description with the corresponding tasks of a formal process model, represented as a graph. The algorithm associates a similarity degree to the description pair, allowing the  detection of inconsistences between them. The project was co-directed by professors Josep Carmona and Lluís Padró of the Computer Science Department.
