Professor John A. McDermid’s Personal Page

I help direct three major projects:

  • The IBM-led ITA programme, funded by the MoD and US Army; York's work is on the security of mobile ad hoc networks, typified by Network Enabled Capability (NEC);
  • The EPSRC-funded Large Scale Complex IT Systems (LSCITS) programme, in collaboration with Bristol, Leeds, Oxford and St Andrews. LSCITS addresses the problems of complex, evolving IT systems. York also leads the associated Engineering Doctorate (EngD).
  • The MoD-funded Software Systems Engineering Initiative (SSEI), a collaboration between industry and academia, intended to improve the conduct of software-intensive defence projects.

I am also engaged in some other, smaller, projects and currently supervise four PhD students.
