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 26, is also part of the 12th Annual Symposium on Future Trends in Service-Oriented Computing.

Ethical Principles for Service-Oriented Computing

When users run programs on their own computers, the ethical criterion is simple: to avoid doing wrong to them, the programs must be frei (under the control of the users). Service-oriented computing raises different issues, of which the most important one is: which jobs are legitimate for servers to do, and with what kinds of interaction with users?

Dr. Richard Stallman launched the free software movement in 1983 and started the development of the GNU operating system in 1984.  GNU is free software: everyone has the freedom to copy it and redistribute it, with or without changes.  The GNU/Linux system, basically the GNU operating system with Linux added, is used on tens of millions of computers today.  Stallman has received the ACM Grace Hopper Award and the ACM Software and Systems Award, a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Pioneer Award, and the the Takeda Award for Social/Economic Betterment, as well as several doctorates honoris causa, and has been inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame.

You can find out more about Dr. Stallmans speech here. Admission is free of charge, and the public is encouraged to attend. A registration only for Dr. Stallman's speech, which can be done anonymously, while not required, is appreciated, as it will help us ensure we can accommodate all the people who wish to attend.

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:

On the website of the Research School, please find latest information about the Ph.D. students, their research interests, joint projects, and events:

Hasso Plattner Institute for IT-Systems Engineering

The Hasso Plattner Institute for IT-Systems Engineering (HPI) at the University of Potsdam is unique in Germany for two key reasons: It was the first university institute in Germany financed entirely by private funds, and it is a prime example of a successful public-private partnership. The Hasso Plattner Institute offers the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in “IT-Systems Engineering” that emphasizes on the ability to design, develop, and control large, complex, and distributed IT systems. A particular specialty of the HPI is the strong engineering orientation that intensively incorporates industrial projects in its curriculum.

11 Research Groups shape the profile of the HPI in IT-Systems Engineering. At the HPI, 480 undergraduate and graduate students are currently enrolled and about 100 research assistants and Ph.D. students are researching in their respective field. Since October 2005, the HPI runs the Research School on “Service-Oriented Systems Engineering”, an international Ph.D. school with 25 Ph.D. students in Potsdam and 25 Ph.D. students at University of Cape Town in South Africa, Technion in Israel, and Nanjing University in China.

The Hasso Plattner Institute tightly cooperates with scientific partners, both nationally and internationally. Among the partners – apart from renowned European universities – are the Stanford University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US, as well as Technical University of Beijing in China. Furthermore, the HPI cooperates with renowned major IT companies, such as EMC, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, Microsoft, SAP, Siemens, and T-Mobile.
