News, lecture slides, assignment sheets and other resources are available on the ISIS-page of the course . There is also a mandatory registration .
The lecture starts on 15.10.2012 (Monday) and is partly held with 4 weekly hours and partly with 2 weekly hours. Both tutorials start on 25.10.2012.
The course targets Master students of Computer Science and Computer Engineering and is the only component of module MINF-SE-OSD  (6 CP).
Operating System architecture, micro- and macrokernels, design principles, resource management, virtualization, distributed OS, modern file systems, queuing models.
Students who have successfully finished this module have an advanced knowledge of operating systems. They are aware of different architectural approaches and know their advantages and disadvantages. They have acquired the ability for well-founded design decisions based on qualitative and quantitative arguments. They have a sound knowledge of modern approaches like microkernels or virtual machines or distributed operating systems.
