Constraints at the Institute of Distributed Systems due to SARS-CoV-2

  • Contact

    Most members of the institute are still in home office. If you cannot reach someone by phone, please use e-mail. In case, you can negotiate other electronic media via e-mail, e.g. audio and video calls. Our secretaries are present from Monday to Thursday in the morning. They are reached best by this central e-mail address.

  • Courses in Summer Semester 2020

    Despite the current situation, all planned institute courses of the Summer Semester 2020 will take place. Only exception is the lecture Grundlagen des Datenschutzes und der IT-Sicherheit which cannot be offered due to capacity reasons. We will use online teaching elements to achieve this as long as class-room teaching is not possible. Further information can be found on the web pages of the individual courses.

  • Courses in Winter Semester 2020/2021

    In Winter Semester 2020/2021, all planned courses will take place. The particular form of the courses is currently determined and will be published on the web pages for the courses.

  • Written Exams, Oral Exams, Post-examination Reviews

    Written and oral exams as well as inspection are allowed again. Details about the procedures can be found on our web page about notes on exams.

  • Theses and Projects

    We continue to offer Bachelor's and Master's theses and Master's projects. This includes in particular remote student support and supervision. As usual, our institute members can be reached by e-mail, and they will be happy to answer your questions.

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.
