Description: This is a general course on compiler construction suitable not only for students of the IST program, but also for EE & CS students that would like to understand how a high level language is step-wise translated into optimized machine code. This lecture is ideal to put theoretical concepts of computer science into practice, to learn about the impact of processor architecture on software performance and to learn/refresh basic and advance optimization techniques.

The lecture covers the following topics:

  • Lexical analysis
  • Syntax analysis
  • Semantic analysis
  • Intermediate representation
  • Control & dataflow analysis
  • Compiler optimizations
  • Target architectures
  • Code selection
  • Scheduling
  • Register allocation

Lecturer: Dr. Norman Rink, Prof. Jeronimo Castrillon

Description: This course supplements the Compiler Construction lecture (see details above). It is intended to give a deeper understanding of compiler techniques and algorithms. The course includes theoretical and practical tasks. For the practical work, students should have basic knowledge of Python and C/C++.

Since the seminar contents are aligned with the Compiler Construction lecture, it is recommended that both the seminar and the lecture are attended simultaneously.

Language: English

Schedule: In the winter semester 2018/2019, the seminar will be held on Thursdays, 09:20-10:50 in room APB/E009 (starting on the 18.10.2018).

Seminars: 18.10., 25.10., 01.11., 08.11., 15.11., 22.11., 29.11., 06.12., 13.12., 20.12., 10.01., 17.01., 24.01., 31.01.

Configuration:  3 V / 2 Ü / 0 P

Lecturer: Prof. Jeronimo Castrillon

Instructors:  Gerald Hempel

Description:  This course gives an introduction into foundations of electronic devices and electronic circuits for information technology and computer engineering. The material provides a bottom-up view of components and methodologies for the design of combinational and sequential digital circuits. The underlying fundamentals of electrical engineering, digital gates, and the CMOS implementation technology are introduced, but will be abstracted later on to focus on methods for analysis and synthesis of digital circuits. Finally, this course provides the tool set to design and understand simple digital circuits such as arithmetic units, storage elements, control units, and counters.

Course outline:

  • Introduction
  • Electronic components
  • Integration technology
  • Digital gates
  • Combinational logic
  • Storage elements
  • Sequential circuits

Language: German

Schedule: In the winter semester 2018, the lecture will be held on:

  • Tuesday, 3. DS (11:10-12:40) in room HSZ/0002  (each 2nd week)
  • Thursday, 2. DS (9:20-10:50) on room HSZ/0003  (each week)
  • Exercises will start in the second week of the semester (Oct. 15.-19.)

Lectures:

11.10., 16.10., 18.10., 25.10., 30.10., 01.11., 08.11., 13.11., 15.11., 22.11., 27.11., 29.11., 06.12., 11.12., 13.12., 20.12., 08.01., 10.01., 17.01., 22.01., 24.01., 31.01.

Classification:

Degree Program Module
Master Informatik INF-PM-FPG, INF-PM-FPA
Diplom Informatik INF-PM-FPG, INF-PM-FPA

Configuration: 8P/PB

Description: In this course, the student works independently but supervised on a given contemporary research project. During the project, the student learns the basic methods of research in the field of compiler construction, application of measurements, and evaluation and justification of results. The outcomes of the project are presented and defended to an expert audience. As such, the research intern is a great opportunity to get involved in the chair's research endeavours and an excellent preparation for writing a diploma or master thesis in our group!

Schedule: Indivually.

How to get started: The projects are defined individually. You can get an overview of the current projects on the staff pages. In case of interest, simply contact the corresponding staff member.

Master Informatik INF-AQUA, INF-VERT5
Medieninformatik INF-AQUA
Diplom Informatik INF-D-940, INF-VERT5
Informationssystemtechnik INF-VERT5

Configuration: 0/2/0

Description: In this seminar, the student acquires the basic skills for doing research: performing a related work search, composing a 6-page paper-like write-down and presenting it. These are fundamental skills that are required as early as doing a Bachelors Thesis, Großer Beleg or Masters Thesis.

The student is free to chose a topic/paper from a set of pre-selected conference papers. Afterwards, the student has one month to review and gather related work on the subject matter addressed in this paper. The write-down must present a more detailed comparison on the paper topic than is already given in the related work section. It may also refer to commonalities in other areas and should suggest now research directions that the approach in the selected paper does not cover.

Schedule: There will be a maximum capacity of 10 students to participate in the seminar. Register with an e-mail to Sebastian Ertel until 2 weeks after the semester started. We will follow up with a date for the presentation and the distribution of topics afterwards.

Language: English.
