ICPE’18 Presentation Award

Congratulations to Markus Weninger for receiving the “Best Presentation Award” at the 9th ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE 2018). Markus presented the paper “User-defined Classification and Multi-level Grouping of Objects in Memory Monitoring” (co-authored with Hanspeter Mössenböck).


We are happy to announce that Thomas Krismayer (2nd right) received an award of the Austrian Society for Artificial Intelligence (ÖGAI) for his master’s thesis ‘Prediction of User Traits from Music Listening Habits’. The award is given annually to promote excellent theses in the field of artificial intelligence. Congratulations, Thomas!

Erfolgreiche Evaluierung des Labors

Software unterliegt aufgrund neuer Anforderungen, Technologien und sich ändernder Einsatzumgebungen einem ständigen Wandel. Das 2013 gegründete Christian Doppler Labor MEVSS (Monitoring and Evolution of Very-Large-Scale Software Systems) entwickelt Methoden und Werkzeuge zur Überwachung, Anpassung und Weiterentwicklung komplexer Softwaresysteme. Unter der Leitung von Prof. Dr. Paul Grünbacher arbeiten JKU-WissenschafterInnen der Institute Software Systems Engineering und Systemsoftware … Continue reading Erfolgreiche Evaluierung des Labors
