Distributed Systems Group
About our group
The Distributed System research group conducts teaching and research into all aspects of distributed computing ranging from theoretical foundations to applied system and software engineering issues. Current research areas are: design and implementation of context-aware, adaptive distributed systems, cooperative autonomous robots, and service-oriented architectures.
Head of the research group is Prof. Dr. Kurt Geihs.
VENUS Demonstration Day (Technologietag)
At the demonstration day of the VENUS project, all the different partners presented the current status of methodology and demonstrators. We as distributed systems group presented “Meet-U”, an adaptive social app to support friends in managing their recreational activities.
VENUS is an interdisciplinary project with research focus on the design process of future ubiquitous systems. Such systems are characterized by context-aware and self-adaptive behavior in social contexts.
