Content
Software developed for research often suffers from a number of common problems that make it difficult to run or even extend. In most cases, the software comes with instabilities and bugs and cannot be disseminated to the following generations of researchers. In this seminar, we will look at techniques that permit us to maintain the software and disseminate research to scientists' next generation. The topics include:
  • Reproducibility of computational results
  • Virtualization, deployment and orchestration
  • Archival of digital assets
  • Maintaining distributed complex protocol implementation
This course will be a supported by supervisors from other institutes from TU Braunschweig and will be part of the Suresoft project.

The following is a preliminary list of topics. The papers might be extended or changed.

The Seminar

The preferred language for talk and essay is english. Each participant will take one or more papers under a specific topic. Participants are responsible for a peer review, including:

  • Attend peer's presentation dry run and give feedback.
  • Review peer's essay before submission.
  • Collect questions to peer's presentation during discussion session.

Notes

Please submit the essay as well as your presentation slides. The requirements for presentation and essay are listed as follows:

  • Presentation and essay preferably in English.
  • Presentation time about 20 minutes.
  • Essay should comprise exact 6 pages without references.

Each participant is supposed to do further research based on the paper. The supervisors are always glad to help in this case.

The strength of the university depends on academic and personal integrity. In this seminar, essays must be done in your own words. Plagiarism is an offense against the examination regulations.
