Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to utilize and be knowledgeable in Service-oriented Computing, Web services, Cloud Computing, the IoT-Cloud spectrum as well as advanced topics. The goal is to discuss theoretical foundations, technologies, architectures, standards and use cases of recent developments regarding contemporary cloud-enabled distributed Internet computing systems. 

  • Service-oriented Computing and Service-oriented Architectures
  • Web services, Composition and Workflows
  • Elastic Computing
  • Cloud Computing
  • Quality of Service
  • IoT-Cloud Continuum
  • Edge and Fog Computing

Subject of course

Advanced Internet Computing covers modern computing infrastructures and methods to support complex Internet applications; those include scalable web services, integration and discovery, cloud deployments and models, elastic systems, business processes as well as other emerging topics. Especially, challenges inherent in contemporary use cases within smart and ubiquitous systems, call for advanced architectures, techniques, and methods. To this end, a particular focus will be on the spectrum defined by Internet of Things on one side and the cloud on the other, driving major developments in cloud computing. Finally, the course will discuss cutting edge challenges and opportunities for present-day and future cloud-enabled distributed Internet computing systems, including within security and privacy, intelligence and mobile communication systems.

Teaching methods


This course focuses on skill building across various aspects of contemporary internet computing systems. We cover conceptual topics on lectures and provide hands-on experience through lab projects.

Lectures will give an overview and establish foundational knowledge on scalable web services, integration and discovery, cloud deployments and models, elastic systems, business processes and networks as well as other emerging topics within the spectrum defined by Internet of Things on one side and the cloud on the other. For each lecture some (optional) recommended reading will be provided, consisting of scientific papers on the lecture's topics.

The lab projects concern applications typically deployed on IoT/cloud infrastructures, with themes which include privacy, stream processing, cloud storage, edge AI and machine learning systems.
There will be 3 lab meetings to support projects (with tutors).
