11th Heinz Nixdorf Symposium „On-The-Fly Computing“ –
The Scientific Final Colloquium of CRC 901

After more than 11 years of successful basic research, the CRC 901 invites all interested parties to a scientific final colloquium. The event takes place within the series of Heinz Nixdorf Symposia and trades as the 11th International Heinz Nixdorf Symposium.

The symposium will be aimed at researchers who conduct research on topics of the CRC 901 “On-The-Fly Computing” in a broad sense. It is intended to foster scientific exchange. The event format is a mixture of keynote talks, workshops, tutorials, and panels on the five topics mentioned below. Contributions to the workshops may, but need not necessarily, describe and discuss original research results. Through top-class lecturers, interesting workshops and tutorials, and an excellent supporting program we want to make the topics of the CRC and the research site Paderborn with its multiple opportunities even more visible in the corresponding scientific communities. Explicitly, we do not want to compete with professional conferences in the subjects addressed with this symposium.

The CRC 901 „On-The-Fly Computing“

The CRC 901 „On-The-Fly Computing“ is funded by the DFG as Collaborative Research Centre since July, 2011. The objective of the CRC 901 is to develop techniques and processes for automatic on-the-fly configuration and provision of individual IT services out of base services that are available on world-wide markets. In addition to the configuration by special OTF service providers and the provision by so-called OTF Compute Centers, this involves developing methods for quality assurance and the protection of participating clients and providers, methods for the target-oriented further development of markets, and methods to support the interaction of the participants in dynamically changing markets.

The Heinz Nixdorf Institute

The Heinz Nixdorf Institute is an Interdisciplinary Research Centre for Computer Science and Technology within the University of Paderborn. It was founded in 1987 initiated and supported by the computer pioneer Heinz Nixdorf. By doing so he wanted to create a symbiosis of computer science and engineering in order to provide critical impetus for new products and services. Today nine Professors and 200 researchers work at the Heinz Nixdorf Institute and per year approximately 30 young researchers receive a doctorate.

The Heinz Nixdorf Symposium is an established biennial event of the Heinz Nixdorf Institute during which researchers and practitioners come together to present challenges from industry, discuss contributions from research institutions and develop novel solution approaches.

The Symposium will be held at the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum (HNF) which is not only the world's largest computer museum but also a modern conference centre and which is located directly next door to the Heinz Nixdorf Institute (HNI). In the HNF the 2G rule (vaccinated or recovered) applies to persons aged 18 and over. Exceptions are made for persons with a medical certificate, but who require proof of testing (rapid test, maximum 24 hours old, or PCR test, maximum 48 hours old). Please remember to bring an identification document!
