Projects

Organic Computing is directly connected to or has inspired the work in several research projects. We give an overview on the major research activities:
Priority program “Organic Computing” (2005-2011)

Initiators: Christian Müller-Schloer, Hartmut Schmeck, Theo Ungerer
Funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG)
Funding Volume: About € 12 million for 18 projects
Website: http://www.organic-computing.de/SPP
Goal: The priority program addressed fundamental challenges in the design of Organic Computing systems; its objective was a deeper understanding of emergent global behavior in self-organizing systems and the design of specific concepts and tools to support the construction of Organic Computing systems for technical applications.

Research Unit “OC Trust” (since 2009)

Initiators: Elisabeth André, Jörg Hähner, Christian Müller-Schloer, Wolfgang Reif, Theo Ungerer
Funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG)
Website: http://www.informatik.uni-augsburg.de/en/chairs/swt/se/projects/oc-trust/index.html
Goal: The project’s aim is to develop techniques that allow the consideration of trust during analysis, design and implementation of Organic Computing systems. Apart from the conscious generation of trustworthiness, evaluation and comparison of different facets of trust or metrics thereof are a part of this endeavor.

Transregional Collaborative Research Centre “InvasIC” (since 2011)

Initiators: Jürgen Teich, Jörg Henkel, Andreas Herkersdorf, Doris Schmitt-Landsiedel, Wolfgang Schröder-Preikschat , Gregor Snelting
Funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG)
Website: http://invasic.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/en/index.php
Goal: The main idea of invasive computing is to introduce resource-aware programming support in the sense that a given program gets the ability to explore and dynamically spread its computations to neighbour processors similar to a phase of invasion, then to execute portions of code of high parallelism degree in parallel based on the available (invasible) region on a given multi-processor architecture. Afterwards, once the program terminates or if the degree of parallelism should be lower again, the program may enter a retreat phase, deallocate resources and resume execution again, for example, sequentially on a single processor.

Priority Program “Dependable Embedded Systems”

Initiators: Jörg Henkel, Oliver Bringmann, Andreas Herkersdorf, Wolfgang Rosenstiel, Norbert Wehn
Funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG)
Website: http://spp1500.itec.kit.edu/index.php
Goal: The goal of this priority program is to develop new methods and architectures at system level as to eliminate the effects associated when migrating to new technology nodes like malfunctioning, performance degradation, increased power consumption.
