The Symposium on Future Trends in Service-Oriented Computing: Connecting Industry & Academia

As the HPI Research School is an interdisciplinary undertaking of the HPI research groups, the Symposium on Future Trends in Service-Oriented Computing covers a wide range of topics concering SOC, which include but are not limited to: cloud computing, {software, platform, infrastructure} as a service, service description, discovery and composition, service deployment, platform configuration and capacity planning, monitoring, service middleware, service-oriented architectures (SOAs), service management, information as a service, service development and maintenance, novel business models for SOAs, economical implications of web services and SOAs, service science, mobile and peer-to-peer services, data services, quality of service, exception handling, or service reliability and security.

Excellent speakers – both from industry and academia – leaders in their respective field of research, are invited to talk about their latest projects and resulting outcomes.

The Doctoral Symposium: Connecting Ph.D. Students from all over the World

Over the years the HPI Research School has been expanded to a state in which we are excited to - in addition to our members from HPI Potsdam, Germany - welcome colleagues from University of Cape Town, South Africa; the Technion, Israel; and Nanjing University, China.

The Doctoral Symposium which takes place on Wednesday, April 10, is also part of the 14th Annual Symposium on Future Trends in Service-Oriented Computing.

The HPI Research School

In October 2005, the HPI started its Research School on “Service-Oriented Systems Engineering”, a graduate school based on the model of the DFG (German Research Foundation) “Graduiertenkolleg”.

The Vision of the Research School

Design and implementation of service-oriented architectures impose numerous research questions from the fields of software engineering, system analysis and modeling, adaptability, and application integration. Service-Oriented Systems Engineering represents a symbiosis of best practices in object orientation, component-based development, distributed computing, and business process management. It provides integration of business and IT concerns. Service-Oriented Systems Engineering denotes a current research topic in the field of IT-Systems Engineering with high potential in academic research as well as in industrial application. Supported by an internationally renowned grant, PhD students at our college participate in joint activities such as lectures, seminars, winter schools and workshops.

The Members of the Research School

The professors of the HPI with their research groups are supporting pillars for our PhD school. With its interdisciplinary structure, the research college on Service-Oriented Systems Engineering interconnects the HPI research groups and fosters close and fruitful collaborations.

In context of the Research School, the different groups at HPI work on the following topics:
