Application-oriented research company in the field of software

Partner for industry and science

As one of the largest independent research centers in Austria in the field of software, Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH) plays a harbinger role for software-related technological research and development trends.

Software Competence Center Hagenberg was founded by five departments of Johannes Kepler University Linz (Prof. Buchberger (RISC), Prof. Pomberger (Institute for Business Informatics), Prof. Klement (Institute for Knowledge-Based Mathematical Systems; Fuzzy Logic Laboratory Linz-Hagenberg), Prof. Wagner (FAW Institute for Application-Oriented Knowledge Processing) and Prof. Engl (Institute for Industrial Mathematics)) in July 1999 in the realm of the K plus competence program

Automotive Computing

What are the challenges that mobility of the future poses for security?

The 3rd event on the subject of automotive computing will take place in the Softwarepark Hagenberg on November 14th. Modern vehicles are increasingly developing into highly complex, mobile IT systems. New, smart features are constantly being added to the range of autonomous vehicles. Get to know safety-relevant aspects at the event.

New COMET partners

In the project proKNOW

Greiner Packaging and P&T Connected are the new partners in the proKNOW project, which is concerned with gaining knowledge from industrial processes.  The goal is to develop and adapt methods for fusion and evaluation of data from different sources (sensors, raw material parameters, etc.) and to support detailed process analysis and optimization in industrial applications.

Machine learning - the entrance!

Data are the raw material of the 21st century

Google, Facebook, Netflix or Amazon are already relying on machine learning. These technologies can also be used in a broad range of industrial environments - but companies are reluctant to do so. It is important not to lose any time, as a look at the state of the art reveals. The SCCH experts and a COMET partner in the current issue of "Computer & Automation" explain what is important.

International Conference on Learning Representations

Joint paper presented

The Data Analysis Systems (DAS) group and the FLLL of the Johannes Kepler University Linz cooperate in the field of  dissertations. The paper on Machine Learing/Deep Learning, which was presented at the ICLR 2017, originates from this cooperation.

Forum IoT

Innovations around digitalization, M2M communication and industry 4.0

The Forum IoT will take place at the 28th of November at the Novomatic Forum Vienna.
Dr. Bernhard Freudenthaler presents the "The Future of Smart Data Analytics".

Forum Mechatronics

Digital transformation in the production

From 27. to 28. September, the International Forum Mechatronics takes place in Linz, Austria. The focus is on current trends and challenges in a digitized production of the future as well as the importance of mechatronics for the development and realization of innovative machines and systems or automated production systems. The SCCH presents Augmented Reality applications and fields of application of Predictive Maintenance.

Successful participation

SCCH team at the M8000

The team competition "Mühlviertel 8000" brought together athletes from eight different nations. Congratulations - in 11 hours and 13 minutes the SCCH team reached the aim in Freistadt.

Data analysis for autonomous driving

Event review

The second event of the event series for IT experts at Softwarepark Hagenberg on "Automotive Computing" was a complete success! On June 22, 2017, around 60 industry experts took the opportunity to address the question: "What are the opportunities for data analysis in the automotive sector?"

Boost for Upper Austrian

Targeted research funding

In order to boost the digital transformation in Upper Austria, the government is encouraging 14 innovative research projects in the field of digitization with a total funding volume of EUR 5.68 million. The Software Competence Center Hagenberg is involved in two projects.

Impulses for the digital change

Research council visited SCCH

"IT is a key technology in digital change. The intensive expansion of innovation competence in the area of IT is of tremendous importance for the state of Upper Austria and is crucial for future economic growth", says LH-Stv. Dr. Michael Strugl.

Software for production

IT is key technology in digital change

In the "Smart Factory" of the future, whole production plants, different components and even finished products act and communicate autonomously. The intelligent factory automatically adjusts itself to different situations and conditions. This enables the flexible and highly economical production of highly individualized products in small quantities. The Software Research Day on May 9, made this clear.
