  • Lecture: Web Science

  • More than twenty years after the birth of the World Wide Web, Web Science has been becoming a new study field in Computer Science. This course introduces fundamental concepts (web centralities & algorithms, network models and web engineering principles) of Web Science. We then give an overview on regular and random network models, influence, economic, and biological networks. We will learn basic algorithms for web page ranking like PageRank and HITS as well as advanced community detection algorithms. The anatomy of commercial recommender systems and dynamic processes on complex networks will finish this part. In the engineering part we dig into emerging cloud computing approaches like MapReduce and advanced topics in network protocols like the XMPP. We will learn about Web Services and their RESTful implementation. With the knowledge gained in the preceding chapter we can analyze and engineer advanced web applications like video annotation environments, personal learning environments and storytelling environments.

  • Lecture: Implementation of Databases

  • The lecture introduces basic technologies of the realization of database systems. Beside the coarse architecture (e.g. layered architecture) detailed procedures for the solution of special database tasks (especially query analysis and transaction management) will be discussed. The concepts of implementation will be applied to classical (relational model) as well as to more recent data models (distributed, XML). In addition to necessary theoretical fundamentals, practical concepts will be introduced that allow database administrators the efficient tuning of databases.

  • Proseminar: Proseminar Datenbanken und Informationssysteme

  • In diesem Proseminar werden aktuelle Themen aus dem Bereich Datenbanken und Informationssysteme diskutiert.

  • Seminar: Seminar Intelligent Distributed Systems

  • Practical course (basic level): Unternehmensgründung und neue Medien

  • Unternehmensgründung und neue Medien ist ein Praktikum für Bachelor-Studenten, in dem die Erstellung eines komplexen Informationsprodukts erlernt wird. In diesem Semester stehen RESTFul APIs im Mittelpunkt. Voraussetzungen sind dabei Kenntnisse aus den Vorlesungen Programmierung sowie Datenstrukturen und Algorithmen.

  • Practical course (advanced level): High-Tech Entrepreneurship and New Media

  • The course combines tutorials and lectures on the development of complex information products with practical experience in start-ups on specific and typical IT-related problems of the companies taking part in the lab. Integrated into the concept of this course is the development of presentation and other soft skills. This term we offer projects ranging from mobile cloud computing to NoSQL databases.
