Fabian Schober studied Applied Informatics. Aged 29, he is the founder of a video game studio and the winner of the “Dynatrace Outstanding IT Thesis Award” (DO*IT*TA for short) for his Master’s thesis. His work won out over other submissions from students at the University of Klagenfurt and impressed the jury with its strong practical relevance.
The University of Klagenfurt has been running the Christian Doppler Laboratory ATHENA in collaboration with Bitmovin since October 2019. The team of researchers is developing new methods for the delivery and playback of live and on-demand video via the Internet using HTTP Adaptive Streaming technology. The aim is to provide viewers with a higher quality, lower latency video experience in the future. At the same time, researchers are seeking to reduce storage and distribution costs. The laboratory has recently undergone a comprehensive evaluation — and can now transition from the pilot phase to a regular laboratory.
Starting in April 2021, Dynatrace will sponsor a classroom in the area of Computer Science for a period of five years, thus sending a strong signal in the ongoing partnership with the University of Klagenfurt. From now on, the classroom in the South Wing will bear the name ‘Dynatrace.’
Bitmovin will be sponsoring a classroom in the area of Computer Science for the next five years, starting in June 2021, and thus continuing the long-standing successful cooperation with the University of Klagenfurt. Going forward, the classroom in the South Wing will bear the name ‘Bitmovin’.
Commercial drones usually come equipped with modest on-board computing power. Consequently, their speed and agility are somewhat limited when they use their cameras like eyes to navigate in space. Samira Hayat, a researcher at the Department of Information Technology, recently joined forces with colleagues from other departments and Deutsche Telekom to investigate the effects of offloading computation to the edge of the network (edge computing).
An interview with Thomas Grassauer about the cooperation between Dynatrace Austria GmbH and the University of Klagenfurt.
Dynatrace is inviting students and graduates of the University of Klagenfurt to participate in the award for the best Bachelor’s and Master’s thesis in the IT field. The prizes will be awarded for the first time this year and will be announced annually from now on. Read more
That life opens up paths you never expected is something Johannes Hofmeister, a doctoral student in statistics, experienced only recently. He told us why he decided not to become a teacher (for now), but has become an avid mathematical researcher instead.
Our graduate Margareta Ciglič discovered her passion for Computer Science while studying Applied Business Administration and decided to study both in parallel. We chatted with her about how all this came about, what her subsequent path at the university and at Kelag Energie has been like, and what is drawing her back to the lecture halls of the University of Klagenfurt in the upcoming summer semester.

When it comes to computer science, we can develop large, complex applications as a single monolithic system, or we can split them into small, scalable components that work together using standard protocols. In the Internet cloud, these small components are often implemented as microservices. A new research project, funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency, sets out to understand more precisely how changes in a single microservice affect other microservices and the application as a whole.
