The Software Engineering Group, also called Descartes Group, is headed by Prof. Dr. Samuel Kounev and focuses on a range of topics related to the engineering of software for building dependable and efficient distributed systems, such as cloud-based systems, cyber-physical systems, and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. Our research is inspired by the vision of Self-Aware Computing Systems, designed with built-in model learning and reasoning capabilities enabling autonomic and proactive decision making at run-time.
Our research is aimed at novel methods, techniques and tools for the engineering of dependable and efficient computer-based systems, including classical software systems and cyber-physical systems.
The best Bachelor and Master Thesis students of 2019 at the Chair of Computer Science II (Software Engeering) have been honored with the Würzburg Software Engeering Awards sponsored by Bosch Rexroth and Infosim.
Samuel Kounev was elected as Co-Chair of the Steering Committee of the new IEEE ACSOS Conference, a merger of the IEEE ICAC and IEEE SASO conferences. Christian Krupitzer was appointed to serve as Publicity & Administration Assistant for the new conference.
