Research at the Professorship of Practical Computer Science
The research of the Professorship of Practical Computer Science belongs to the field of programming, simulation and the development of complex software systems. A key area is parallel programming for parallel systems of different sizes, i.e., for supercomputers, clusters, multicores or GPUs with a priority on utilizing these computing systems efficiently and providing supporting software tools.
In interdisciplinary projects, scientific computing and workflow-based software approaches are investigated from the viewpoint of computer science. This includes the development of user software as well as software that supports programming. Relevant topics are the development of scheduling algorithms, transformations, data management, algorithm libraries e.g. for sorting, and programming models such as task parallelism. Current research deals with energy efficiency and cloud computing.
