Modern system architectures are composed of at least two components, one handling control flow and one that is concerned with the data used by the application. For a long time, control flow modeling and analysis have been studied in the separation of external systems managing data. Often only basic data types have been covered if any. Conversely, data analysis is carried out for very simple tasks, not reflecting complex and often distributed control flow interferences. Especially current data-intensive applications (e.g., machine learning) require integration of both worlds.

In this seminar we will be concerned with recent research contributions, that provide integrated methods and tools for (distributed) systems combined with more sophisticated data sources than core data types can provide. We offer a variety of topics, ranging from conceptual and modeling aspects to analysis, such as formal verification. In each branch, we are going to discuss whether the effort of the combination provides actual benefits over the techniques that are commonly used when only considering control flow and data in separation.

Concrete topics will be assigned during the introductory sessions, based on the thematic tendency of each participant.

Schedule and Location

The introductory sessions will take place on Tuesdays DS5 (14:50 to 16:20), most likely virtually. Please check "Dates and Materials" for further details and links to the virtual rooms. From April 27, I'm offering an office hour on Tuesdays DS5.


Upon interest, we can provide seminar attendees with follow-up research-related tasks that may be later developed into master's or bachelor's theses, and/or publications.


Please, feel free to send me an email if you have any further questions.
