Computer scientist Reinhard Wilhelm receives international award for life-long research achievements

Real-time systems: they control processes where it is important that a program runs within a certain time window – for example in airbags, anti-lock braking systems or aircraft control systems. If calculations here were too slow by only fractions of a second, lives would be at stake. Reinhard Wilhelm, Professor of Computer Science at Saarland University, has spent many years developing automatic methods for runtime analysis in real-time systems. Thanks to his work, the correct functioning of [...]

A different start to the semester – Saarbrücken computer science students begin their studies digitally

Never before has there been anything like this in the history of computer science in Saarbrücken: a completely digital start to the semester. Due to the corona pandemic, the traditional computer science welcome event at the beginning of the semester could not be celebrated together at the university for the first time since 1969. Nonetheless, the launch of the first digital summer semester was a success.

Founding against Corona: IT Inkubator GmbH awards best idea with 10,000 euros

More than 42,000 people have taken part in a programming competition to combat the corona virus. Now the IT incubator of Saarland University and Max Planck Society is also counting on software and the creativity and determination of the people behind it. It is launching the “Ideas against Corona” competition and awarding the best IT solution with 10,000 euros. Even the losers win: Even their ideas are assessed by the Saarbrücken IT Incubator and thus have the chance to be supported as well.

New tool to assist doctors and authorities in acquisition of Corona infection data

Knowledge about the exact corona infection figures is an important cornerstone for developing effective measures to contain the virus. However, inconsistent transmission channels, potential breaks in the transmission chain and a large number of actors involved make it difficult to transfer data quickly and accurately to key players. Here the “Infektionsmelde- und -informationssystem (IMIS)” offers a solution. Two master students of computer science at Saarland University are involved in the development.
