CSCUBS is organized by PhD- and MSc-Students and aims to promote research in computer science and scientific exchange among students. The participation of researchers and practitioners of the field is also encouraged.

The 3rd Computer Science Conference for University of Bonn Students (CSCUBS):
  • For new research or development related to Computer Science, including University projects, theses, and outcomes of other professional activities.
  • Promotes scientific exchange among students.
  • Peer-reviewed.
  • Online publication of accepted papers.

  • The 3rd Conference will be held on May 25, 2016 (Dies Academicus) at the University of Bonn. CSCUBS intends to provide the ability to connect with each other and engage in discussions about the participants’ respective research and development, and also to establish opportunities for knowledge and technology sharing. Submissions to CSCUBS should describe new research or development related to Computer Science, including University projects, theses, and outcomes of other professional or leisure activities.

    We welcome submissions from all areas of Computer Science (in English or German).

    Important for PhD Students

    For PhD students (including students who are about to start a PhD) we are organising a dedicated poster and networking session. This will require a 2-page abstract on the topic of your PhD. Accepted submissions will be presented as A1 posters.

    In this poster session you will be able to network with other PhD students as well as identifying potential synergies.

    The key idea of the World Wide Web is to share information. However, sharing information also includes an easy-to-use mechanism of retrieving information from the Web. Given the available tools like Google, Facebook, Wolfram Alpha, Apple Siri etc. we are under the impression that all information is accessible instantly, directly and rapidly. However, this might only be true for standard cases of information retrieval, not for many business and academic uses cases tackling (complex) search scenarios. In this presentation we will focus on understanding the demands for sophisticated search technology which affects many aspects of the Web engineering research. While reviewing several use cases of relevance for academics and industry we will highlight research challenges to sketch future fields of activity for today's students.


    Short CV:

    Dr. Andreas Both is a computer scientist dedicated to applied research in an industrial context. He received a PhD in Computer Science for his research on component-based systems and service-oriented architectures. At web-driven companies he has worked for many years in leading research and development positions on different aspects of modern Web technologies. In particular, data-driven processes, data integration and information retrieval applications are important topics. He commits himself to advance in using the World Wide Web as knowledge base and developing the next generation of Web applications to open the capabilities of the WWW for both industry and users.

    Many Big Data applications in business and science require the management and analysis of huge amounts of graph data. Previous approaches for graph analytics such as graph databases and parallel graph processing systems either lack sufficient scalability or flexibility and expressiveness. We are therefore developing a new end-to-end approach for graph data management and analysis at the Big Data center of excellence ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig. The system is called Gradoop (Graph analytics on Hadoop). Gradoop is designed around the so-called Extended Property Graph Data Model (EPGM) which supports semantically rich, schema-free graph data within many distinct graphs. A set of high-level operators is provided for analyzing both single graphs and sets of graphs. The operators are usable within a domain-specific language to define and run data integration workflows (for integrating heterogeneous source data into the Gradoop graph store) as well as analysis workflows. An initial version of Gradoop based on Apache Flink is operational ( and has been used for analyzing graph data for business intelligence and social network analysis.
