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.

With more than 300 participants, the 29th Intl. Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE 2017), held from June 12 -16, was well attended. The conference took place in Germany for the second time. Beside three excellent keynotes the scientific program consisted of 37 presentations (chosen from over 170 submissions) and 20 presentations in the CAiSE Forum, as well as five topic-specific workshops and five co-located events. The conference was chaired by Prof. Dr. Klaus Pohl (paluno, Uni DuE, Essen) and Eric Dubois (LIST, Luxemburg).

Impressions from the conference, order information for proceedings and information about the next CAiSE 2018 can be found at  http://caise2017.paluno.de/

Dr. Zoltán Adam Mann of paluno’s Software Systems Engineering group (headed by Prof Dr Klaus Pohl), presented a full paper at CCGrid 2017. CCGrid is the IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing, which took place for the 17th time in Madrid, May 14-17, 2017. The paper titled “Optimized cloud deployment of multi-tenant software considering data protection concerns” is the first scientific outcome of the European H2020 project “RestAssured”, which develops solutions for secure data processing in the cloud.

A growing number of easy-to-use cloud services are available over the internet. However, users find it increasingly difficult to understand what cloud services do with their personal data and whether personal data may fall into the wrong hands. The recently started project RestAssured develops solutions to avoid data protection violations by dynamically adapting the cloud systems. The EU is funding the Research & Innovation Action RestAssured, which involves six partners, granting ca. 5 million EUR for three years. paluno’s ‘Software Systems Engineering’ group, headed by Prof Dr Klaus Pohl, will be funded with a. 650,000 EUR. RestAssured combines techniques for adaptive software systems with innovative security mechanisms into an end-to-end data protection solution for the cloud.

Big Data may reshape transport processes and services to significantly increase operational efficiency, deliver improved customer experience, and foster new business models. Current forecasts expect that a 10% efficiency improvement may lead to EU cost savings of 100 billion Euros. Beginning in January 2017, the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme will fund the lighthouse project TransformingTransport (Big Data Value in Mobility and Logistics), which involves 47 partners, granting 14.6 Million Euros for 2.5 years. paluno’s ‘Software Systems Engineering’ group, headed by Prof Dr Klaus Pohl, plays an integral role within the project and will be granted individual funding worth 760,000 Euros. The TransformingTransport project will demonstrate, in a realistic, measurable, and replicable way the transformative effects that Big Data will have to the mobility and logistics market. TransformingTransport will address seven pilot domains of major importance for the mobility and logistics sector.

The adoption of cloud computing is on a steady increase. Clouds contain data, software programs, and offer almost endless storage capacity and processing power. Fully exploiting the potential of cloud technology, however, means to address new technical challenges. These challenges were addressed by the EU funded project CloudWave („Agile Service Engineering for the Future Internet“). In the CloudWave project, researchers from paluno (SSE group, Prof. Dr. Klaus Pohl) worked together with renowned partners from research and industry. After three years of joint research, the project was concluded with an excellent final review at the end of 2016.
