Welcome to MCSE

MCSE: Modelling for Continuous Software Engineering (previously known as ARE: Architecture-driven Requirements Engineering) has been started in February 2013 and is headed by Prof. Anne Koziolek. Since 2021, we have been a member of the KASTEL — Institute of Information Security and Dependability and we are renaming the research group to MCSE.

 

 

 

ICSA 2021
ICSA’21 10-years Most Influential Paper Award will be presented to Anne Koziolek, Heiko Koziolek, and Ralf Reussner

7 April 2021

The 18th International Conference on Software Architecture (ICSA'21) awarded the ICSA'21 10-years Most Influential Paper Award to the paper "PerOpteryx: automated application of tactics in multi-objective software architecture optimization" by Anne Koziolek, Heiko Koziolek, and Ralf Reussner.

ICSA is the premier venue for practitioners and researchers interested in software architecture, in component-based software engineering and in quality aspects of software and how these relate to the design of software architectures. ICSA has a strong tradition as a working conference, where researchers meet practitioners and software architects can explain the problems they face in their day-to-day work and try to influence the future of the field.

VKSI awards and honorable mentions for KASTEL members

Two awards and two honorable mentions have been given to members of the Institute of Information Security and Dependability (KASTEL). The association of software engineers in Karlsruhe (Verein der Karlsruher Software-Ingenieure e.V./VKSI) award students for excellent bachelor’s and master’s theses every year. This year, Larissa Schmid (from the group Modelling for Continuous Software Engineering, Prof. Anne Koziolek) receives the VKSI award for an excellent thesis on foundations of software engineering. Her master’s thesis has the title "Modeling and Simulation of Message-Driven Self-Adaptive Systems". Sebastian Hahner (from the group Dependability of Software-intensive Systems, Prof. Ralf Reussner) receives the award for an excellent thesis in applied software engineering. His master’s thesis has the title "Domain-specific Language for Data-driven Design Time Analyses and Result Mappings for Logic Programs". Honorable mentions for their final theses go to Dominik Fuchß and David Monschein.
