On September 19 and 20, the fall meeting of the GIOperating Systems Group took place in Erlangen, where current research topics in the German-speaking field were discussed — with about 120 participants, a new record was set. In three sessions there were a total of 10 presentations on various aspects of operating system and system-software development.
Embedded in the meeting was the commemorative event for the 50th anniversary of the chair, where the keynote speaker Hermann Härtig put the achievements of the i4 into the national as well as international context. Afterwards, Jürgen Kleinöder, as the (FAU-)longest serving member of staff, traced the early years of the chair up to the turn of the millennium, while Wolfgang Schröder-Preikschat continued seamlessly with the developments during his tenure. Afterwards, Rüdiger Kapitza concluded the lecture series with an insight and outlook on current research topics in the system-software area.
