Titel:  Modeling and Analysis of Complex Dynamic Systems: Why Should Computer Scientists Care?



The last decade has seen considerable effort regarding the development of modeling approaches and analytic methods for complex networks. In this talk I will briefly summarize some of the main findings and particularly focus on the question how computer scientists can employ approaches from the study of complex networks in the design of large-scale distributed and socio-technical systems. I will demonstrate how a complex network perspective on the social layer of collaborative systems can be used to efficiently filter relevant information in distributed software engineering. Finally, I will present recent advances in the modeling and analysis of so-called temporal networks, in which nodes are connected only intermittently in a sparse fashion. I will show how the ordering of interactions in such systems can give rise to a hidden complex topology which significantly affects the performance of dynamical processes and distributed algorithms.

Short bio:
Ingo Scholtes obtained his diploma in (practical) computer science from the University of Trier in 2005. In 2004, he obtained hand-on experience in the design of a complex large-scale distributed system during a stay at CERN, where he designed and implemented the Peer-to-Peer-based Event Monitoring Service of the ATLAS detector. In 2011 he obtained his doctorate degree in computer science from University of Trier, before moving on to a research stay at the Biological Physics research group of Tamás Vicsek at Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. Since September 2011 he holds his current position as postdoctoral researcher at the chair of Systems Design headed by Frank Schweitzer at ETH Zürich. His research interests include the modeling and analysis of complex dynamic networks, and applications to all kinds of distributed technical and socio-technical systems.
