Nowadays internet services are being used everywhere: on your smartphone, your landline phone, your laptop and even an increasing number of home appliances. Today's service providers such as eBay, Amazon, Google and Microsoft therefore have to meet higher user requirements than ever. Questions like "Do all my services run as planned?", "How can my services be improved?", or "How can my services be made simpler to use for customers?" arise in this area.

In this seminar we will follow up on these questions in the area of operating complex IT-Systems by consulting selected research papers and recent textbooks including but not limited to current hot topics such as:

  • Cloud Computing
  • Management of Large Scale Computing Clusters
  • Machine Learning, Big Data Analysis and Visualization
  • Internet of Things 
  • Fault Tolerance
  • as well as related and emerging challenges regarding the design of Distributed Systems

Although there is no guarantee for acceptance, students may propose own topics covering the mentioned or related areas. Please note that we will publish a list of available topics separately (see section Topics).
