Institute of Software Engineering and Programming Languages

Research

Our research covers many aspects of software engineering and programming languages. In particular, we focus on domain-specific languages, software configuration, and constraint programming. We employ formalized theories, develop open-source tools, and apply empirical research methods.

Overview of our research topics

Teaching
