|Language of instruction||English|
This lecture will be held in English.
Email Lecturer: Josef Weidendorfer
Time: Every Wednesday, 14:00 - 16:30 (15 min break in the middle) in FMI 00.13.009A.

Should be 15-20 min. Topics can be motivation/techniques/benchmarks of existing VM implementations, for example (also propose your own!): related to Process-VMs: QEmu, Rosetta, related to OS-level virtualisation: Docker, Singularity. Related to HLL-VM: platform (bytecode) used in Python, .NET related to System-VMs: Xen, KVM
