Chair of Computer Science II - Software Engineering


    The RELATE Winter School on Engineering and Provisioning of Cloud Applications – Research and Entrepreneurship was successfully hosted by the Department of Computer Science. The event brought together Researchers and practitioners to share and present their experiences, discuss challenges, and report state-of-the-art and in-Progress Research in the area of cloud computing and service Engineering.


    The "RELATE" FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Samuel Kounev, is organizing a “Winter School on Engineering and Provisioning of Cloud Applications – Research and Entrepreneurship” in Würzburg from February 17-20, 2015. The event is sponsored by the European Commission and is open to any interested participants from industry and academia (registration is free).


    Our latest research on Load Testing Elasticity and Performance Isolation in Shared Execution Environments was presented at the Fourth International Workshop on Large-Scale Testing (LT 2015), co-located with the 6th International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE 2015). The presentation slides are available for download.


    The Chair of Software Engineering (Prof. Dr. Samuel Kounev) has launched a new cooperation with ABB as part of an Academic Research Award awarded in the area of industrial software systems.


    Liebe Studierende, der neue Lehrstuhl II – Software Engineering (SE) möchte sich vorstellen. Wir laden herzlich zu den SE Winter Days,



    IEEE ICAC'15


    The 12th IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing (ICAC'15), co-organized by Samuel Kounev as Program Committee Co-Chair, will be held in Grenoble, France, July 7-10, 2015. The paper submission deadline is January 22 (abstracts due on Jan 15).


    The 16th GAMM-IMACS International Symposium on Scientific Computing, Computer Arithmetic and Validated Numerics (SCAN'14), organized by Prof. Wolff von Gudenberg as General Chair, was held at the University of Würzburg from 21st to 26th September, 2014 and attracted over 80 international researchers from more than 18 countries.


    Our latest research on quantitative evaluation of service dependability in shared execution environments was presented at FLORENCE 2014 - a joint scientific event of QEST 2014, SAFECOMP 2014, FORMATS 2014, EPEW 2014 and FMICS 2014. The presentation slides are available for download.


    New IEEE TSE Paper


    A new journal paper on "Quantitative Evaluation of Model-Driven Performance Analysis and Simulation of Component-based Architectures" has been accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (TSE).




    An interview with Samuel Kounev on "Self-Aware Computing" (in German) in the WirtschaftsWoche Magazine.


    The 5th Multi-Skills Training Camp (MSTC) of the RELATE Marie Curie Initial Training Network, coordinated by Samuel Kounev, was held in the premises of the University of Rennes 1, France from 25 to 27 June 2014, and hosted by the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique Research Centre.
