Seamless integration of teaching, research and applications An innovative, integrated approach forms the core framework of the teaching, research and practical applications of the Faculty.

Our study programmes evolve naturally from our research activities, so that students of all levels have opportunity to work directly on software development projects that have real-world impact for business, the public, and the international research community.
Our teaching offer comprises all three levels of studies: Bachelor, Master and PhD. Our jewels in the crown are our European Masters degrees, which foresee periods of study at partner universities and a double degree.

We are particualrly committed to research. An excellent infrastructure and an international and dynamic teaching body create the ideal environment for this and our research projects are internationally recognised and financed through national and European funds, with frequent contributions from local companies and public institutions.

Our strong focus on research does not make us neglect real-world applications. Our Faculty works in close collaboration with local entities, organises common endeavours and addresses actual demands of enterprises, local government and schools.

On the Effect of UML-Based Models on Source-Code Comprehensibility - An IDSE SeminarExternal eventsExperimentation is fundamental to any scientific and engineering discipline. Analyzing the results of the experiment involves learning, the encapsulation of knowledge and the ability to change and refine our models over time. Like other engineering disciplines, software engineering requires the cycle of model building, experimentation, and learning. This talk underlines primary and secondary empirical experimentation conducted with human being in the software engineering context.

WissKI: Semantic Annotation, Knowledge Processing, and Science communication in a Virtual Research Environment - A KRDB SeminarExternal events Using the WissKI system as prototypical example, the concept of a virtual research environment is presented. WissKI is based on the requirements for collaborative research in the areas of cultural heritage and its documentation in the digital medium and  is being developed in the DFG-funded project "Wissenschaftliche Kommunikations-Infrastruktur" (Scientific Communication Infrastructure, It's not just about the ease of deployment and open availability of source materials¿ --structured texts, images, graphic files, video, audio-- and meta-data in digital form, but also¿ aims to provide an infrastructure for interactive and networked work based on deep semantic disclosure.¿ A crucial role is played by the "Conceptual Reference Model" of ICOM-CIDOC as formal reference ontology which can be extended with suitable application ontologies. Their implementation using the "Web Ontology Language", together with different "semantic web" tools, form the core of the WissKI-System.

Holistic Software Evolution - An IDSE SeminarExternal eventsIn this talk I will present 15 years of research in the domains of software evolution research, program comprehension, software visualization, recommender systems, and some other collateral topics. The ultimate goal is to go towards the conception of the evolution of software as a holistic process.Room 102, Dominikanerplatz 3 - Piazza Domenicani, 3, 39100 Bozen-BolzanoMichele Lanza, Full Professor at the Faculty of Informatics of the University of Lugano, founder of the REVEAL research group

A Spatial Data Infrastructure for Cultural Heritage Risk Management in Myanmar - An IDSE SeminarExternal eventsCultural heritage is world-wide recognized to be one of main values for the human being. While relevant research and cultural activities in archeology and monuments protection are present in less favoured countries based on donations, bilateral and international agreements, the overall approach to awareness raising of comprehensive systems for cultural heritage risk management and decision-making is still generally missed. Due to the lack of a comprehensive system for cataloging, monitoring and managing information, to the scarceness of interoperability it is generally very hard to exploit the value of cultural goods and provide their preservation as well. Local communities and national economy suffer of this short view and cultural heritage are exposed to greater risks. Due to the geographic location and to his own history the Republic of Union of Myanmar has an huge number of cultural heritage objects such as complex monuments, single buildings, landscapes, archaeological areas, natural environment constituents and more. The cultural heritage, as sum of mentioned components, needs to be considered for cataloging and the information to be organized in a specialized system before that the external agents both natural and man-originated might increase his vulnerability and subsequently the risk of destroying and/or damaging. The already applied theory and practice of cultural heritage risk management in Europe fully demonstrated that local communities and national economy may highly profit of such a system for cultural heritage risk management. Therefore it has to be considered that the Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) for cultural heritage risk management may provide adequate tools and solutions to the needs of managing information and provides a specialized and effective decision support system. Because SDIs need to be designed taking into account geographic, technical, artistic, semantic, historical, social, administrative, organizational, cultural aspects and components it is wise to address them in a workshop specifically tailored for Myanmar. Based on the successful results achieved by the initiative and the exhibition "Immagini di luce" ( ( Images of light) which has been showed in the Myanmar pavilion at EXPO 2015, the workshop is aiming to make one step forward in defining the SDI for cultural heritage risk management in Myanmar sharing the knowledge of informatics, history, archeology, design and organization experts and researchers. The exhibition hosted for short time in the University premises will be the reference for considering the Myanmar peculiar cultural aspects. Some outcomes are expected from the workshop in order to check the feasibility of further actions and scientific and operational activities. The workshop will have a morning session for presentations and an afternoon session for discussion and outcome drafting.Mauro Salvemini, Senior Researcher at Sapienza University of Rome, UN expert for the UN Human Settlements initiative, member of the group implementing the UN World Conference on Geospatial Information Management
