The size of the Internet of Things (IoT) is steadily increasing. In addition to a broad range of opportunities, this also entails new challenges. These challenges include handling the heterogeneity and high number of connected IoT systems, as well as managing the highly dynamic environment of IoT systems. The recently started EU project ENACT develops solutions to address these challenges. In particular, ENACT address a central challenge, which is detecting and avoiding conflicts if more than one IoT system influences the same environmental variable. The EU is funding the Research & Innovation Action ENACT, which involves eleven partners, granting ca. 5 million EUR for three years. paluno’s ‘Software Systems Engineering’ group, headed by Prof Dr Klaus Pohl, will be funded with ca. 420,000 EUR. UDE leads the development of techniques for the agile operation and adaptation of IoT systems as part of an end-to-end DevOps framework.

UNIKATE is the scientific magazine of the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE). The current issue of UNIKATE marks the 50th anniversary of the magazine. The current issue focuses on high performance computing and cloud computing. The article „Completely private?“ written by Dr. Zoltan Mann, Dr. Andreas Metzger und Prof. Dr. Klaus Pohl (paluno research group SSE) discusses challenges and solutions for secure storage and processing of personal data in the cloud. The solutions presented were developed in the research projects iObserve and RestAssured.

With more than 300 participants, the 29th Intl. Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE 2017), held from June 12 -16, was well attended. The conference took place in Germany for the second time. Beside three excellent keynotes the scientific program consisted of 37 presentations (chosen from over 170 submissions) and 20 presentations in the CAiSE Forum, as well as five topic-specific workshops and five co-located events. The conference was chaired by Prof. Dr. Klaus Pohl (paluno, Uni DuE, Essen) and Eric Dubois (LIST, Luxemburg).

A growing number of easy-to-use cloud services are available over the internet. However, users find it increasingly difficult to understand what cloud services do with their personal data and whether personal data may fall into the wrong hands. The recently started project RestAssured develops solutions to avoid data protection violations by dynamically adapting the cloud systems. The EU is funding the Research & Innovation Action RestAssured, which involves six partners, granting ca. 5 million EUR for three years. paluno’s ‘Software Systems Engineering’ group, headed by Prof Dr Klaus Pohl, will be funded with a. 650,000 EUR. RestAssured combines techniques for adaptive software systems with innovative security mechanisms into an end-to-end data protection solution for the cloud.
