The Chair Informatik 5 was founded by Prof. Matthias Jarke with Ph.D. students Stephan Jacobs (now Professor at FH Aachen) and Klaus Pohl (now Professor and Director of the paluno Software Systems Engineering Center at University of Duisburg-Essen) in January 1991. From these humble beginnings, the Chair grew to currently six professors, 7 postdocs, 22 doctoral researchers, 5 technical/administrative staff, and over 30 student assistants. Since 1.1.2000, Informatik 5 is associated with the Fraunhofer FIT institute of Applied Information Technology by five joint professor appointments, and since 1993, it also served as founder for the Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology (b-it) with two additional sponsored professorships in the RWTH Aachen Computer Science Department. Since Fall of 2015, Informatik 5 is co-chaired by Professors Matthias Jarke and Stefan Decker.
