(German: Modellbasierte Entwicklung von Technologien für selbstorganisierende dezentrale Informationssysteme im Katastrophenmanagement - Metrik)

Recent progress in the field of Informatics has lead to visions how to use new self-organizing networks for advanced information systems. These networks function without central administration all nodes are able to adapt themselves to new environments autonomously and independently. The graduate school focuses on a very specific application domain: computer-supported disaster management. For this reason, the graduate school emphasizes the use of techniques, methods, and concepts for designing and implementing geographic information systems on top of dynamic, highly flexible, self-organizing networks and their integration with services for geographic information systems based on existing technologies in these areas.
