We will have five sessions for presentations from mid of June until mid of July 2021. Please have a look at the materials regarding the schedule for your presentations and see when your presentation is scheduled.
Please also consider that you have to submit a draft of your presentation including your experiment idea on Thursday (13.05.2021) and the final version of your presentation after your talk.
Please make sure that your presentation will last about 20 minutes. After the presentation, there will be about 10 minutes of discussion.

Attendance is mandatory for all participants for all presentations (i.e., for all sessions)!

After your submission on Thursday, you will receive feedback to your slides and experiment idea from your advisor. We recommend to arrange a meeting with your advisor.

The final version of your slides also has to be submitted after your presentation has taken place -- the version of the slides you will have used in your presentation. There is a separate entry for the submission of the final slides in the CMS (make sure to upload them to the correct session).

Please try to acquire a webcam for your presentation, so we can be sure that you are presenting in person.

About the Seminar

Performance is a critical aspect of software in many domains, such as high-performance computing or embedded systems, where resources are limited. When it comes to assessing the performance of software systems, performance engineers face a multitude of problems to solve, some of which are:

  • How should we configure the software system to be performance-optimal (compile-time vs. run-time arguments)?
  • How should we analyze the software system to understand and predict performance behavior (white-box vs. black-box)?
  • How often should performance measurements be run (e.g., with every commit or before a new release)?
  • How should we benchmark software systems (hardware, workloads, etc.)?

In this seminar, we address and discuss possible solutions and trade-offs, theoretically, by addressing the state of the art in research and, practically, by planing, preparing, and performing our own performance experiments

Registration

Registration for the seminar is mandatory. To distribute students among the available seminars offered by the computer science department, you have to select your preferences for a seminar or a proseminar on the central registration platform for seminars and will be automatically assigned to a seminar according to your preferences.

If you are assigned to this seminar, for organizational reasons, you have to sign up both in the course registration form that will be given above and in the LSF (seminar, proseminar). Deadlines for the LSF (HISPOS) registration will be posted in the LSF (HISPOS) portal. Registration is possible up to three weeks after the topic assignment / kick-off.

Due to the current situation with SARS-CoV-2, this course will be held online. The topic assignment will take place on Thursday, 15.04.2021, 12:15 PM. Further information will be provided via e-mail after the registration.
