Institute of Distributed Systems

The Institute of Distributed Systems is actively researching scalability, reliability, security and privacy, self-organization, and complexity management issues in distributed systems. We apply our research to a wide range of practical use cases, including cloud computing and vehicular communication networks.

Moreover, we offer lectures and projects related to our research, including computer networks, distributed systems, and security and privacy.
