Current Topics

Introduction

This term we will hear a number of talks focussing on very different topics like artifical intelligence and agent systems, computer linguistics, contstraint programming, search etc.

Oliver Vogel will present an successful application of a model-driven project in Switzerland.

The third IBM university day will present an opportunity to see how consultants work in large scale projects. We have not decided on specific subjects here but they will of course cover current developments and methodologies.

Bernard Clark will do another of his well-known workshops on methodology and architecture, this time we will try to build an enterprise architecture using the principles of Service Oriented Architecture.

Software development on mainframe systems will be another workshop - possibly as a block course - where Karl Klink and friends will teach us the core principles of mainframes and their software like transaction management etc.

What else? Bill Gates made a keynote talk at RSA 2006 outlining the microsoft security strategy for future systems. The talk can be found at the RSA homepage Keynote . or at the Microsoft homepage (see talks of B.G. I'd like us to discuss the proposals. .
