Tom Frotscher wins the 2013 Software & Systems Engineering Award (b+m SSEP) for his Master’s thesis on “Architecture-Based Multivariate Anomaly Detection for Software Systems”. Since 2011, the annual b+m SSEP jury elects an excellent thesis submitted to the Kiel University’s Computer Science Department based on scientific quality and practical relevance . Tom’s thesis, supervised jointly by the Universities in Kiel and Stuttgart, extends the initial work on Kieker’s Online Performance Anomaly Detection (OPAD) approach by Tillmann Bielefeld who received the b+m SSEP in 2012. Tom’s thesis was again conducted in close collaboration with Xing AG, whose well-known business networking platform served as the case study system.
