We are glad to announce the launch of the second TUDμNet site: TIZ. The acronym stands for the german Technologie und Innovationszentrum, and is the building where the laboratory of the DFG-funded Research Training Group GRK 1362 is located. Spanning a surface of ~180 square meters, the TIZ deployment includes 60 TelosB sensor nodes equipped with the standard SHT11 sensors (light, humidity, temperature).
Similarly to other deployments (e.g., EmStar ), all nodes are mounted on the ceiling of the various areas of the GKmM lab. While 3 of these are typical office space, the largest is a disaster scenario following RoboCup Rescue's urban search and rescue  arena assembly guide. This allows a more realistic evaluation of the integration of sensor networks with mobile robots.
In the next days we will be running some statistics to evaluate the performance of the testbed services (reprogramming and logging), though researchers can go ahead and begin using the new zone when scheduling a job.
A short clip showcasing the deployment can be found in YouTube.

Title: "Handling Events in a Clinical Environment"
Time: Tuesday September 27th 2011, 2:00 pm
Location: S202 / A102
Abstract: In this talk, we present an approach for contextualizing an event-based decision support system for scheduling patient assessments in a hospital. Through observations of a specific workflow in a Norwegian University Hospital, we found that the clinical environment offers a number of challenges that seem under-addressed in current event-related literature.
For example: To cope with unexpected delays, patient coordinators often pursue a worst case scenario when scheduling patient assessments, leading to an underutilization of human resources and equipment when the procedure went without complications. We present a context-based decision support system for patient planning that helps the patient coordinator with taking well-informed rescheduling decisions and anticipating changes in other patients' schedules. The system uses information and events produced by medical equipment. As these events can be nondeterministic, we demonstrate how our domain specific context model can be used to contextualize events to enhance their quality and ascertain their meaning.
We are currently implementing the system and have already found that traditional approaches do not fit our perspective. Reasons for this will be given during the talk.
The talk will mainly be about representing a "version" of the real world based digital information which was not meant for the purpose that it is used for. An explanation by use of a real life use case (see above) from a hospital that indicate the need for a notion of quality, both event quality and information quality will be addressed.
Short Bio: After finishing his B.Eng in The Netherlands, Leendert Wienhofen started working for CognIT a.s in Oslo as a knowledge engineer in 2000. He has mostly been working on EU research projects with a focus on a combination of ontologies, semantic web related technology, mobile platforms and business processes. In 2006, he started working for SINTEF ICT, Scandinavia's largest independent research institute and continued working on projects mostly related to mobile, context aware technology. In 2009 he started working on a PhD at NTNU with the main research focus on quality in event processing technology applied in hospitals. Getting the right information to the right person at the right time has always been one of the main topics in his work

The poster Designing a Testbed for Large-scale Distributed Systems by Christof Leng, Max Lehn, Robert Rehner, Alejandro Buchmann discusses state-of-the-art techniques for the development and evaluation of distributed applications.
|Date:||Wednesday, June 8th, 10:30am|
|Location:||Robert Piloty Building (S2|02), Room: S2|02 A102|
|Speaker:||Peter Pietzuch, Department of Computing, Imperial College London|
|Topic:||Secure Distributed Applications using Information Flow Control|
Ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of data in distributed healthcare or financial applications is challenging. Developers may introduce unintended or deliberate security flaws in different parts of an application, which may lead to the disclosure of sensitive data. While access control mechanisms and source code auditing are used in practice to avoid security flaws, security violations are nevertheless a frequent occurrence.
Instead of avoiding all security flaws, I introduce our work on providing a "safety net" to distributed applications that prevents sensitive data disclosure from happening. Our approach is to use information flow control (IFC) to track the flow of data through a complex, heterogeneous distributed application and constrain undesirable flows that could violate data protection policy. I describe our DEFCon middleware that applies the IFC model to event-based systems in Java, after adding support for strong isolation between objects to the Java runtime. In addition, I present our recent work on PHP Aspis, which uses IFC to protect PHP web applications against injection vulnerabilities.

|Speaker:||Prof. Johannes Gehrke, Cornell University, USA|
|Topic:||Playing Games with Databases|
Scalability is a fundamental problem in the development of computer games and massively multiplayer online games (MMOs). Players always demand more --- more polygons, more physics particles, more interesting AI behavior, more monsters, more simultaneous players and interactions, and larger virtual worlds.
Most game developers think of databases as persistence solutions, designed to store and read game state. But the advantages of database systems go way beyond persistence. Database research has dealt with the question of efficiently processing declarative languages, and the resulting research questions have touched many areas of computer science.
In this talk, I will show how the idea of declarative processing from databases can be applied to computer games and simulations. I will then discuss how we can use ideas from optimistic concurrency control to scale interactions between players in MMOs, and I will conclude by describing how we can use these techniques to build elastic transaction processing infrastructure for the cloud.

Research in the field of wireless sensor communication will enable us to make an essential contribution to the improvement of our daily life. Sensors we consider in our research include environmental sensors, mobile phones, PDAs, navigation equipment, car keys, electronic purses or pulse rate measurement devices. New diverse applications, which can be integrated into the context of a smart city, will arise. This concept requires an intelligent environment in which daily life supporting services are ubiquitous.
Here is a link to the recent press release.
The course covers the foundations of Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing from architectural, algorithmic and practical perspective. In addition it covers new trends such as Data Warehouse Appliances, Cloud Analytics, Column Stores and the use of flash memory. The course replaces its predecessor-Data Warehousing.
The lecture includes a hands-on practical exercise, in which we shall demonstrate different systems and techniques.
Many of today's software systems rely on predictable and stable information flows. Due to the digitalization of the world, these flows become increasingly more complex and dynamic. Thus, tomorrow's software systems have to become more distributed and reactive. Those Distributed Reactive Software Systems (DReSS) are best realized with event-based systems.
In our new lecture we discuss state of the art research and provide hands-on experience in implementing a ready-to-use event-based system which will process real-time event data from our sensors.
