As all other presentations, the presentations take place in the SR 2.06 in the E1 1 building.

Please upload the final slides in the CMS until 11 AM (one hour before the presentations) to use only one single laptop and reduce switch time between each presentation.

The projector is capable of displaying slides in the aspect ratio of 16:9 (4:3 also works).
We will provide also a presenter.

 

At the day of your presentation, you have to submit your final presentation as PDF in the CMS. Please do this already in the morning

Understanding of Configurable Software Systems

Most recent software systems offer the end-user many knobs to personalize the software system. The sheer size of different configurations that arise from combining different knobs leads often to unforeseen behavior of the software system. Even understanding the impact of changing a single knob on the behavior, e.g., runtime, reliability, or robustness, of the system imposes a major challenge.

In this seminar, we address and discuss possible solutions and trade-offs, theoretically, by addressing the state of the art in research regarding black-box, white-box, and causal analyses.

In this seminar, each participant has to perform a literature search and present the state-of-the-art in research on configurable software systems.
Subsequently, the topic and the results of the literature search have to be incorporated into a presentation and a written thesis.
To aid the literature search and the presentation, this seminar includes multiple preparatory sessions at the beginning of the semester.

 

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.

In this seminar, each participant has to perform a literature search and propose an experiment for the given topic.
Subsequently, the topic and the results of the literature search have to be incorporated into a presentation and a written thesis.
To aid the literature search, the experiment proposal, and the presentation, this seminar includes multiple preparatory sessions at the beginning of the semester.
All sessions will take place on-site at the university (under the caveat that the pandemic situation admits in-person sessions) on Thursdays 12:15 PM - 2:00 PM.
Participation to all sessions is mandatory.
 
The topic assignment will take place on Thursday November 03, at 12:15 PM. Further information will be provided via e-mail after registration.
