From April to December 1997, I was working at the Lehrstuhl für Rechnertechnik und Rechnerorganisation (LRR-TUM, Prof. Bode) of the Technische Universität München, funded by the Sonderforschungsbereich 342 ``Werkzeuge und Methoden zur Nutzung paralleler Rechnerarchitekturen'' (roughly: special research area 342 ``Tools and Methods for Exploiting Parallel Computer Architectures''), in the project part A1 ``Integration von Werkzeugumgebung und Rechnerarchitektur zur Parallelisierung'' (``Integration of Tool Environment and Computer Architecture for Parallelization'').
On 1. January 1998 I migrated to the Institut für Technische
Informatik of the Medizinische
Universität zu Lübeck (Institute of Computer Engineering
of the Medical University at Lübeck). There I worked on
clusters of workstations and PCs connected by high speed networks
(SCI, HIC), on fault tolerance and load balancing.
I was involved in the ESPRIT project 20693 ``ARCHES''.
I co-organized the 3rd Workshop on System-Integrated Load and Resource Management, SVLR'99.
And also subsequent SVLR workshops (at some point renamed to SILR).
