The Institute for Software Systems Engineering (ISSE) is a leading research institute on the Department of Computer Science at JKU and focuses the science behind software and systems engineering. The work of the institute covers a wide area of software engineering, from requirements capture, software and systems architecture and design, testing, to maintenance; including software modeling (consistency, traceability, impact of change), product line engineering (and other forms of variability), requirements engineering, monitoring, software quality, software processes, domain-specific languages, static and dynamic program analysis as well as compilation technology.
The institute employs around 20 researchers, which are supported with grants from Austria, Canada, European Union, and USA – covering both academia and industry. Funding comes from national research grants like the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and from applied research grants from companies such as IBM, Siemens, and Trumpf or the SCCH and the ACCM (which are company-funded consortia). The institute hosts the prestigious Christian Doppler Laboratories (CDL) on Monitoring and Evolution of Very-Large-Scale Software Systems (2013-2020).
