S-BPM ONE 2016, the 8th International Conference on Subject-Oriented Business Process Management will take place at Opens external link in new windowRegionales Rechenzentrum Erlangen (RRZE), University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany.

The address is Martensstr. 1, 91058 Erlangen.

More detailed info coming soon.

RRZE Location

The RRZE (marked in red on the map) is located on the southern campus of the university.The RRZE is right next to the computer science building ("Informatik"), which is a blue and very tall-rise building.

Evening Program

To finish the conference day in a relaxed manner we will offer you guided tours through the Regional Computing Center of Erlangen (RRZE) for an insight look. The half-hour tours will start at 16:00 hrs and will not only show old-fashioned technology from the very early days of computers such as the Zuse Z23, but will also provide a visit to the server room with state-of-the-art super computers. Of course you will also have the opportunity to make and maintain contacts while snacks and refreshments are being served.

The Zuse Z23

Through the glass door on the upper level of the Computing Center she can be spotted: Konrad Zuse’s legendary Z23. She was not only the first electronic computer system of the FAU, but is worldwide one of the few systems of the computer pioneer that is still fully functioning. After standing still for over 30 years and a two year restauration process this is now one of the main attractions of ISER, the computer science collection of Erlangen. Discover the history of computers at your fingertips!

The High-Performance Computers

When you tour the server room of the Regional Computing Center of Erlangen look behind the scenes of the IT-provider of the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU). In the server section that is normally closed to the general public you can see all wires connecting so to speak: For example the data traffic of more than 50,000 students and employees distributed over more than 200 building complexes across five cities. Or the WLAN of the FAU that typically supports more than 10,000 users at any time. You can also get a close look at the HPC-Clusters. What started with a Linux-Cluster in 2003 that mastered 776,000,000,000 computer operations per second has now long been surpassed. The new high-performance computers Emmy and LiMa have a total computing power of 300 Teraflops.

Palais Sutterheim

Following the guided tours will be a social event starting at 19:30 hrs.

Palais Stutterheim

The event will be held downtown at the beautiful Palais Sutterheim which is located near the historic castle square.
