In October 2005, the HPI started its Research School on "Service-Oriented Systems Engineering", a postgraduate school based on the model of the DFG (German Science Foundation) "Graduiertenkolleg".
Design and implementation of service-oriented architectures impose numerous research questions from the fields of software engineering, system analysis and modeling, adaptability, and application integration.
Service-Oriented Systems Engineering represents a symbiosis of best practices in object orientation, component-based development, distributed computing, and business process management. It provides integration of business and IT concerns.
"Service-Oriented Systems Engineering" denotes a current research topic in the field of IT-systems engineering with high potential in academic research as well as in industrial application. Supported by an internationally renowned grant, PhD students at our college participate in joint activities such as lectures, seminars, winter schools and workshops.
The Supervisors of the Research School
The Professors of the HPI with their research groups are supporting pillars for our PhD school. With its interdisciplinary structure, the research college on "Service-Oriented Systems Engineering" interconnects the HPI research groups and fosters close and fruitful collaborations.
In context of the research college, the different groups at HPI work on the following topics:
- Human Computer Interaction and Computer Vision as Service (Prof. Dr. Patrick Baudisch)
- Service-Oriented Geovisualization Systems (Prof. Dr. Jürgen Döllner)
- Modeling and Verification of Self-Adaptive Service-Oriented Systems (Prof. Dr. Holger Giese)
- Tools and Methods for Software Engineering in Service-Oriented Systems (Prof. Dr. Robert Hirschfeld)
- Security Engineering of Service-Based IT-Systems (Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel)
- Service-oriented Information Integration (Prof. Dr. Felix Naumann)
- Evolutionary Transition of Enterprise Applications to Service-Orientation (Prof. Dr. h.c. Hasso Plattner)
- Operating System Abstractions for Service-Oriented Computing (Prof. Dr. Andreas Polze)
- Services Specification, Composition, and Enactment (Prof. Dr. Mathias Weske)
International cooperations enable the HPI to extend its research scope and to provide its international partners with an opportunity for close exchange and with access to the HPI's international research contacts. Junior researchers work at their home universities, but receive their scholarships from the HPI in Germany. While being mentored jointly by their home university professors, they will be integrated into the Potsdam HPI Research School's research activities and participate in joint conferences and symposia.
- Nanjing, China
In November 2011 the "HPI Research School at Nanjing University" was opened.
- Haifa, Israel
Since April 2010 there is a HPI Research School at Haifa in cooperation with Technion - Israel Institute of Technology too. The Ph.D. students are working at the "HPI Research School at Technion, Haifa" within the HPI Research School team.
- Cape Town, South Africa
In April 2009, the HPI Research School launched a "branch" in South Africa. The "HPI Research School at University of Cape Town" is mainly researching information and communication technologies that are relevant for developing and emerging countries.
The Research School annually advertises 8 Ph.D. positions and 2 Postdoc positions. For further information please visit the page Open Positions.
Speaker of the Research School on "Service-Oriented Systems Engineering" is:
