Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München is one of the three top ranked German universities. It enjoys a centuries-old tradition and is today one of the most internationally renowned and strongest research universities in Germany. Its 18 faculties provide room to research and teach for around 700 professors and 3,000 academic staff. LMU offers a wide and well-rounded range of learning opportunities that cover all areas, whether humanities and culture studies, law, economics and sociology, or medicine and the sciences. In addition to its many faculties, LMU Munich is home to many special research centres, facilities, interdisciplinary projects and national and transnational initiatives.
At the Department of Informatics, the chair Programming and Software Engineering (PST), led by Prof. Martin Wirsing, has expertise in software engineering for service-oriented adaptive systems and their interaction with humans and users, object-oriented software development based on formal methods, and soft constraint reasoning for multi-criteria optimisation. Products of PST are an integrated development environment for service-oriented systems, a model checker for real-time UML, and middleware for self-aware, adaptive systems. Currently, PST is coordinating the EU ASCENS Project on Autonomic Service Component Ensembles and has previously coordinated the FET Global Computing project SENSORIA on Software Engineering for Service-Oriented Overlay Computers.
