UniversitÄt zu LÜbeck

Research and teaching at the Universität zu Lübeck (UzL) started in the field of medicine, but the faculties today encompass much more than medicine: informatics, science and engineering. The common element among these is their focus on life sciences, which is also mirrored by the motto, "Im Focus das Leben", Focus on Life. The Universität zu Lübeck is internationally distinguished for its research and the high quality of academic education.

The Universität zu Lübeck works closely with regional and global businesses, specialising in this field in order to ensure optimum commercialisation of research results. Intensive transfer of knowledge and technology also characterises the Universität zu Lübeck. The UzL ranks among the top five universities in Germany in the competition on Exchanges between Universities and Corporations.

The proposed research is carried out by the Institute for Information Systems (Prof. Dr. Ralf Möller) of the Universität zu Lübeck and collaborates with the Institute of Security in Distributed Systems (Prof. Gollmann), at Hamburg University of Technology.

The Institute of Information Systems (IFIS) is one of the Institutes of Computer Science at University of Lübeck and was established by Prof. Dr. Volker Linnemann in 1993 as the first Computer Science Institute at the University of Lübeck. Since October 2014, the institute is headed by Prof. Dr. Ralf Möller.

IFIS is concerned with the representation, storage, and retrieval of any kind of data for building information systems. Main research activities are centered around logical and probabilistical foundations of data modelling, efficient storage and retrieval of data, development of inference and query answering techniques for huge amounts of data as well as the automatic generation of data representations, e.g., from large networks such as the Web.

An amendment was requested to the commission services, requesting the removal of a partner and the addition of a replacement partner. Professor Ralf Möller of Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH) accepted an employment offer from Universtät zu Lübeck (UZL). He moved to Lübeck and his entire team working on the project followed him. Hence, the project requested that Universität zu Lübeck entered the PANOPTESEC project as of November 1st, 2014, and that TUHH left the project on the same date. The total project budget remains unchanged.
