Welcome to the Ruhr Institute for Software Technology

The software systems of the future will be characterized by widely distributed, mobile, even ubiquitous use; by the seamless interaction between physical and digital services, data and things; and by continuous adaptation to a rapidly

evolving technology and business context. IT systems that are up to these challenges enable digital enterprises to not just cope with frictional changes in their markets, but to take advantage of new business opportunities as they emerge. In research and industry projects with partners across Europe, paluno develops scientific, yet pragmatic approaches to engineer such complex software systems – for the infrastructures of the future as well as the application landscapes of today.

paluno’s research and transfer paradigm encourages mutal benefit from basic research, applied research and bilateral industry cooperations. Our research teams join competencies covering all phases and layers of software engineering, and bring in experience from application domains as diverse as insurance, automotive, health, energy, and logistics.

During this year’s “Dies Academicus” of the University of Duisburg-Essen, the Master thesis of Felix Föcker was awarded as best thesis of the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics. The Master thesis of Mr. Föcker was supervised by the Software Systems Engineering (SSE) research group of Prof. Klaus Pohl at paluno – The Ruhr Institute for Software Technology. Using a logistics case study and data set from industry, the thesis explored the use of novel machine learning techniques for predictive process monitoring. The thesis demonstrated, that ensemble prediction techniques deliver an improvement of prediction accuracy for the logistics processes of the case study. An overview of current topics for Bachelor and Master theses at the SSE research group is available from https://sse.uni-due.de/lehre/themen/ (in German).

Synergy between requirements engineering, software architecture and software quality assurance is essential for mastering the increasing complexity of today’s software-intensive systems. These software engineering disciplines thus need to be considered as closely intertwined rather than as separate, sequential activities. To support our research activities in the in the area of requirements engineering, software architecture and testing, we are looking for a qualified associate researcher (m/f) with a strong interest current research questions. The announced position as PhD Candidate/Associate Researcher (salary classification TV-L 13) is initially offered for two years with the option for extension, depending on personal qualification. The position is being offered in full-time and part-time (at least 50 % of a full-time position). The position also provides the opportunity to achieve a PhD degree and thus to pursue further academic qualification.

The 2nd International Workshop on Big Data Software Engineering (BIGDSE) took place on May 16 in Austin, Texas as part of the world’s largest and most important software engineering conference (ICSE). BIGDSE was jointly organized by Luciano Baresi (Politecnico di Milano), Tim Menzies (North Carolina State University), Andreas Metzger (research group SSE Prof. Dr. Klaus Pohl, paluno, University of Duisburg-Essen), and Tom Zimmermann (Microsoft Research).

The intersection between big data and software engineering offers opportunities for the development of future software systems, such as analysing user forums to identify new software requirements. However, big data also poses challenges to software engineering, such as how to perform software quality assurance in the presence or large data volumes. The relevance of this topic became evident by the huge interest in the workshop, which attracted forty researchers from academia and industry.

After a keynote on industrial data analytics given by Flavio Villanustre from LexisNexis Risk Solutions, 13 research presentations discussed the intersection between big data and software engineering. This year’s BIGDSE topics included real-time data analytics for software engineering, development approaches for data-intensive systems, as well as dependencies between data quality and software quality. An expert panel discussed data protection concerns from the US and the EU point of view.

The BIGDSE proceedings are available from the ACM Digital Library at http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?doid=2896825#. The presentation slides can be downloaded from the workshop website at https://sse.uni-due.de/bigdse16/#programme.
