Technische Universität Graz
The Institute for Software Technology of the Technische Universität Graz (TUG) founded in 2003 comprises 3 full professors, 2 associate professors, 4 assistant professors, and 27 researchers funded by third-party projects. The main areas of research include Artificial Intelligence (in particular Model-Based Reasoning (MBR), Qualitative Reasoning (QR), and Configuration), software debugging, software testing, verification and validation, robotics (in particular autonomous, mobile Robots), and computational geometry. The objectives of TUG are to provide high-class basic research as well as to bridge the gap between basic and applied research. Within the past 10 years TUG has published 109 journal papers, 416 conference and workshop publications. In 2015, the TUG was the organizer of the 15th edition of the IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST) in Graz, Austria and in 2016 the 20th IFIP International Conference on Testing Software and Systems (ICTSS) in Graz, Austria. In 2019 TUG carried out the 32nd International Conference on Industrial, Engineering & Other Applications of Applied Intelligent Systems (IEA/AIE) in Graz, Austria specifically focusing on the autonomous driving and the application of artificial intelligence technology in practice.
