Established in 1972 and managed by the second generation since 2002, the chair deals with fundamental issues relating to the complexes of system software that supports programs or applications and facilitates the programming or operation of computing systems, monitors and controls the execution of programs, operates computing systems reliably and efficiently in a specific manner and implements an abstract machine with all these characteristics — a layer of software, commonly referred to as the operating system or middleware. In this sense, teaching and research at the chair is generally geared towards a resource-aware systems programming in terms of space, time and energy for stationary, mobile, embedded or centralized or distributed systems, whose individual nodes are typically parallel computing systems in the form of multi- or many-core systems.

We start the summer semester 2022 with a newly designed website and a wide range of courses. After more than two years of coronavirus, virtual and hybrid teaching, we are pleased to offer teaching predominantly in presence again from this semester on.

In addition, masks are still mandatory, for which at least a surgical mask, but better FFP2 mask, must be worn. Exception: The mask may be taken off when se...

Maximilian Ott, who already worked in our operating system section during his studies (and also as a tutor for many years), will start as a research assistant at the chair on April 15 in order to be able to deepen his research activities. Furthermore, he will support the team of System-Level Program...

To provide a web site that is barrier-free and conform to the FAU Corporate Design, the Chair of Computer Science 4 is now launching sys.cs.fau.de with the latest FAU design based on WordPress. Of course, the previous principles will be maintained: All information about the chair and its researc...
