Tutorials

The role of the tutorials is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and as a meeting point for the community. Tutorials complement the depth-oriented technical sessions by providing participants with broad overviews of emerging fields. A tutorial can be scheduled for 1.5 or 3 hours.

TUTORIALS LIST



Tutorial on
Quantum Computing is Getting Real: Concepts and Applications


Instructors

Frank Leymann
University of Stuttgart
Germany
 
Brief Bio
Frank Leymann is a full professor of computer science and founder of the Institute of Architecture of Application Systems (IAAS) at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. His research interests include architecture of large systems, service computing, workflow management, cloud computing, pattern languages, and quantum computing. The projects he is working on are funded by the European Union, the German Government, or directly by industry partners. Frank is co-author of nearly 500 peer-reviewed papers, more than 70 granted patents, and several industry standards. Before moving to university, he served as a Distinguished Engineer at IBM.
Johanna Barzen
University of Stuttgart
Germany
 
Brief Bio
Johanna Barzen studied media science, musicology and phonetics at the University of Cologne. Next to this she studied costume design at the ifs (international film school Cologne) and worked in several film productions in the costume department in different roles. Currently she is Postdoc and research staff member at the Institute of Architecture of Application Systems (IAAS) at the University Stuttgart performing research on Digital Humanities, Pattern Languages and Quantum Computing.
Abstract

Quantum computing is becoming real: several vendors like IBM and Amazon are offering quantum hardware in the cloud, and this hardware is already powerful enough to solve real world problems. But programming a quantum computer is very different from traditional programming models. In this tutorial, we will explain the background of quantum computing, describe the predominant programming model, give sample algorithms and sketch promising near-term application areas in machine learning.

Tutorial on
Microservices in Numbers: Diagnostic Docker Deep Dive


Instructor

Josef Spillner
Zurich University of Applied Sciences
Switzerland
 
Brief Bio
Josef Spillner is head of the Service Prototyping Lab and associate professor at Zurich University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland. With his team, he advances computing paradigms around the topics of cloud-native and post-cloud applications, serverless computing, messaging and microbilling. Moreover, he explores novel ways to publish practically useful research output. Earlier in his career, he published a doctoral dissertation about metaquality of services and a habilitation treatise about stealth computing in multi-cloud environments.
Abstract

Cloud applications are typically designed as coupled microservices and deployed in managed containerised form. Industry trends around container build processes, deployment packages, management platforms and abstractions (e.g. cloud functions) are still fast-paced. Developers and operators need to be able to tell good from bad practices based on automatically determined metrics. Assuming they participate in this tutorial, they will learn how to do that on a hands-on level. We introduce approaches and open source tools for quantitative assessment of containers and other microservice technologies and ecosystems. On the research side, we explain how this blends with policy-driven deployments, trusted cloud execution and data science opportunities.
