Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The integrated course on "Cooperative Systems" (052700, 6 ECTS) is structured into three parts. Part I presents a survey on models in the field of classical CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work). Part II deals with an introduction into theoretical basics of general cooperation, using related concepts from cooperative game theory. Finally, part III consists of a case study from the area of application of cooperative systems which is assigned to small groups of students.
In parallel, we will jointly read the book "Distributed Systems" by A. Tanenbaum in seminar style. The individual chapters will be prepared and presented by small student teams.

Assessment and permitted materials

The grading is based on
- a two-hour written exam focussing on theoretical aspects (slides are allowed)
- a case study performed in group work and presented orally
- the preparation and presentation of slides for one chapter of the used textbook

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The course aims at teaching students the theoretical and practical foundations of cooperative systems as well as their application in the framework of a practical case study. Moreover, in the form of a seminar the foundations of distributed systems are jointly acquired.

Examination topics

This integrated course consists of lectures, excercises and an applied case study as well as seminar elements.

Reading list

Tanenbaum & Van Steen: Distributed Systems: Principles and Paradigms, 2nd Edition. Pearson, 2007. Further literature will be announced during the course.
