    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.

    Abstract : Service-oriented computing is a key enabler for major trends such as cloud computing, Internet of things, and digital transformation. About a decade after the first wave of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) concepts reached a plateau of maturity, microservices are currently emerging as a state-of-the-art implementation approach to SOA that leverages recent advances in software engineering such as domain-driven design, continuous delivery and deployment automation. However, (micro-)service interface design remains a challenge due to the fallacies of distributed computing. Service designers seek design guidance and reusable architectural knowledge for this problem domain.This presentation first derives the principles and patterns defining the SOA style from an industrial case study. Next, it establishes seven corresponding microservices tenets. The presentation then reports on the ongoing compilation of a service design pattern catalog and discusses tool support for pattern selection and other architectural decisions. It concludes with a reflection on research challenges and problems in service-oriented computing, potential contributions from other fields, as well as general lessons learned from industrial and academic projects.

    Short CV:

    Prof. Dr. Olaf Zimmermann is a professor and institute partner at the Institute for Software at the University of Applied Sciences (HSR FHO) in Rapperswil, Switzerland. His areas of interest include Web-based application and integration architectures, SOA and cloud design, and architectural knowledge management. Previously, Olaf was a senior principal scientist at ABB Corporate Research and a research staff member and executive IT architect at IBM Research who investigated the role of architectural decisions in the design process. From 1999-2005, Zimmermann worked as a solution architect and consultant, helping international clients in multiple industries build enterprise-scale SOA/Web services and Java Enterprise Edition solutions on professional services projects. In the beginning of his career, he was a scientific consultant and developer in the IBM European Networking Center (ENC) in Heidelberg, Germany, focusing on industry-specific middleware frameworks for systems and network management. Zimmermann is a certified The Open Group Distinguished (Chief/Lead) IT Architect and a member of the editorial board of IEEE Software. He is a regular conference speaker and instructor. He also is an author of Perspectives on Web Services (Springer, 2003) and contributed to several IBM Redbooks, including the first one on Eclipse and Web services (2001).

    Abstract: In recent years a number of large-scale triple-oriented knowledge graphs have been generated. They are being used in research and in applications to support search, text understanding and question answering. Knowledge graphs pose new challenges for machine learning, and research groups have developed novel statistical models that can be used to compress knowledge graphs, to derive implicit facts, to detect errors, and to support the above mentioned applications. Some of the most successful statistical models are based on tensor decompositions that use latent representations of the involved generalized entities. In my talk I will introduce knowledge graphs and approaches to learning with knowledge graphs. I will discuss how knowledge graphs can be related to cognitive semantic memory, episodic memory and perception. Finally I will address the question if knowledge graphs and their statistical models might also provide insight into the brain's memory system.


    Short CV:

    I received a Diploma degree in physics from the University of Göttingen in 1984 and M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees from Yale University in 1986 and 1989, respectively. During my Ph.D., I worked in the Image Processing and Analysis Group (IPAG) at Yale. In 1990, I joined Siemens where I have been heading various research teams in machine learning. In 1994 I was a visiting scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the Center for Biological and Computational Learning. Each summer I give a lecture on machine learning and data mining (since 2003). Lecture Material can be found here (under construction). In 2011 I was appointed professor in informatics at the LMU (Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich).

    Each student of the University of Bonn is eligible to give a 2-3 min talk without slides. Interested students in giving lightning talks can sign up in the registration at 9:00-10:00.

    We also have 100€ for the best lighting talk.
