The Max Planck Institute for Software Systems

studies the principles of efficient, dependable, secure, and usable computing systems, as well as their interaction with the physical and social context in which they operate.

We conduct foundational research in relevant areas of computer science and beyond, covering theory, empirical analysis, and data-driven investigation. We seek impact through publications, artifacts, and people.
