Expelliarmus is a novel semantic-centric approach to VMI management system in IaaS Clouds that helps to
minimize storage, publish and retrieval overheads. It incorporates three complementary features:
VMIs are modelled as semantic graphs to expedite the similarity computation between multiple VMIs.
Semantic-aware VMI decomposition and base image selection to extract and store non-redundant base image and software packages.
Assemble VMIs based on the required software packages upon user request.

The research activity is focused on the optimized monitoring and measurement techniques purposely tuned for data-intensive
applications able to offer fine-granular performance statistics collection with controlled overhead at the exascale.
The underlying challenge consists in providing techniques for monitoring resource utilisation and instrumenting of the scalabale applications without causing large overheads in the instrumented system.
The research activity is focused on the auto-tunable system design (mathematical models, algorithms), which effciently performs orchestration of the massive data-intensive processes of the exascale systems while keeping in consideration the set of constraints. The underlying challenge consists in selection of tunable parameters space, optimization objectives and strategies for optimized (static, dynamic) control.
The optimization space created by these tunable parameters will be used as the core for the online scheduler operation that possibly considers multiple conflicting goals such as execution time, energy
and efficency by varying the tunable parameters.

As part of Askalon, a performance monitoring tool stores workflow execution traces in a PostgresSQL database.
ARTICONF researches and develops a novel set of trustworthy, resilient, and globally sustainable decentralised
social media services. ARTICONF addresses issues of trust, time-criticality and democratisation for a new
generation of federated infrastructure, to fulfil the privacy, robustness, and autonomy related promises that
proprietary social media platforms have failed to deliver so far.
Roland is a Ph.D. candidate in computer science under the supervision of Prof. Radu Prodan at UNI-KLU. He completed his MSc in computer science at the University of Innsbruck.
His research interests in the areas of cloud computing comprise cloud simulations, workflow applications and multi-objective optimizations. Roland was actively involved in the ENIAC project eRamp focusing on task scheduling in clouds and multi-objective parameter optimizations. He published five publications in relevant journals and conferences.
Martina Steinbacher graduated from the business school Feldkirchen in 1996. In the years following she served as the front-office-manager in a hotel. During winter seasons she was responsible for the administration of a ski school and also worked as a skiing instructor. She joined the Distributed Multimedia Systems group in 2001 and since then has handled the various administrative activities of the research group and of ITEC. In particular, she is in charge of project management, conference organization and graphic design activities.
We gained our expertise due to actively participation in numerous international and national research projects, ranging from basic research to application-oriented projects and direct cooperation with industry, such as:
ENTICE: dEcentralized repositories for traNsparent and efficienT vIrtual maChine opErations, H2020-ICT-2014-1, 2015 – 2018
We integrate our innovative tools, services, and methodologies researched in the ASKALON environment aiming to make the development, optimization, and execution of real industrial and scientific applications on distributed computing environments an everyday practice.
