iPraktikum Team Receives SmartHome Deutschland Award 2018

Following the outcome of 2017, the iHaus iPraktikum team of the winter term 2017/18 again received the first place in the category “best student achievement” (“Beste studentische Leistung”) at the SmartHome Deutschland Award 2018. Over the course of one semester, the eight students have developed the iHaus DNA system.

The current generation of smart homes comes with a great variety of sensors and actuators. Many of these devices interact with each other, creating a unique footprint of the occupants' routines and behavioral patterns. At the same time, there is a high effort for occupants in setting up rules for the automation of their regular activities. The iHaus DNA system tackles this problem by smartly detecting daily habits and suggesting their automatic execution to the occupants. Furthermore, the iHaus DNA system is able to identify anomalies and thereby contributes to its user's comfort, security, safety, and health.

As part of an all-day event in the Rotes Rathaus in Berlin on May 14, 2018, the students presented the project and thereafter received the award for the first place. The SmartHome Deutschland initiative represents a trade-spanning, interdisciplinary communication platform to enable information exchange between regional smart home organizations and representatives of research, development, industry, commerce, and craft.

Apply for the iPraktikum or its related courses for the summer semester!

We will offer the iPraktikum again in the coming summer semester! We are looking for participants in various roles. Would you like to learn about software engineering in an applied setting while developing a mobile application? Apply as a Developer for the practical course iPraktikum.

If you have already participated in a project at our chair, consider applying for the seminar/practical course Agile Project Management. In this course, you get to take on the role of a Coach and learn about agile project management in a real project.

Are you an experienced iOS developer? Apply to be a Tutor in our introductory courses and teach beginners how to develop in Swift as participant in the (pro)seminar Teaching iOS. You prepare an interactive tutorial and help students during the course. If you have any questions feel free to contact Dominic Henze or ios (at) in.tum.de.

4th RCoSE Workshop @ ICSE 2018

We organize the 4th International Workshop on Rapid Continuous Software Engineering together with international colleagues. The goal of this workshop is to present and discuss innovative approaches, ideas and experiences in the area of rapid continuous software engineering, in particular agile practices, continuous integration and continuous delivery, tool support for continuous software engineering, live and automatic experimentation, software evolution and maintenance.

We are soliciting full research papers (up to 7 pages), position papers (up to 4 pages) and industrial abstracts (1 page). The workshop will take place on May 29, 2018 in Gothenburg, Sweden, in conjunction with the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) 2018. You can find the call for papers on the RCoSE 2018 website. We are looking forward to your paper submissions until February 5, 2018  and great discussions during the workshop! (Please note: abstracts are due January 30, 2018)

Tutors in Summer 2018: EIST & POM

We will teach two large courses in summer 2018: Introduction to Software Engineering (EIST) has a focus on software development with exercises on analysis, design, modeling, programming and testing. Project Organization and Management (POM) introduces students to agile methods, meeting management, configuration management, release management, continuous integration and continuous delivery.

Both courses have special emphasis on blended and experiential learning, mixing theory with exercises. We expect more than 1600 students in EIST and more than 500 students in POM. Therefore, we are looking for motivated tutors who help us in the preparation and conduction of exercises. Tutors can participate with a HiWi contract, or as part of a Seminar / Praktikum. If you are interested, please fill out the application form with your motivation, CV and transcript of records.

Best Paper Award at ESEM 2017

The course is free and open to everyone and you will learn: 

  • methods and techniques to develop software for different domains and platforms
  • analyze requirements and transform the problem statement into models using textual analysis
  • model multiple representations of the system consistently
  • identify design patterns
  • map models to source code
  • integrate source code into an app
  • deliver this app to the customer using build and release management

 

TÜV SÜD Innovation Award 2017: First Place

TÜV SÜD has awarded the TÜV SÜD Innovation Award for the first time: joint winners are Tarek Ouertani (Munich Workaround GmbH) and Constantin Scheuermann (TU Munich, Chair for Applied Software Engineering). Together they have developed the intelligent working glove ProGlove, which simplifies workflows in production and logistics thanks to innovative scanning technology. The prize is endowed with 25.000 Euro and is aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (SME), which have developed and already launched market-oriented products or services in cooperation with science. The iPraktikum 2015 ILAS project laid the foundations for a successful research cooperation.
