Information Systems & Databases
The Chair of Computer Science 5 - Information Systems works on the formal analysis, prototypical development, and practical testing of meta-information systems. These systems are used to document and coordinate the distributed design, integration, and evolution of database-centered applications in computer science. Our research topics include Engineering Information Systems, Metadata in Community Information Systems, Mobile Applications and Services, Database and Meta-Database Technology, Technology Enhanced Learning and Model Management.
Informatik 5 is headed by Prof. Dr. M. Jarke who is also head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology (FIT). Prof. Jarke is founder director of the Bonn-Aachen International Graduate Center for Information Technology (B-IT). Affiliated to Informatik 5 are the teaching and research areas for Knowledge-based Systems/Cognitive Robotics(Prof. Gerhard Lakemeyer, Ph.D.), Visual Knowledge Management/Life Science Informatics (Prof. Dr. Thomas Berlage), Cooperation Systems/CSCW (Prof. Wolfgang Prinz, Ph.D.) and Media Informatics/ Media Processes (Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose).
