The Chair of Communication Technologies aims at the investigation of future communication networks and future applications offered through these networks.

The chair focuses on the following research topics:

  • algorithms and mechanisms to design and operate communication networks 
  • network architectures and protocols for future communication technologies
  • performance evaluation of networked and distributed systems
  • network security
  • wireless and cellular networks

Our vision is that networked systems should become self-* (i.e., self-configuring, self-adjusting, self-optimizing).

Accordingly, we are currently particularly interested in automated and data-driven approaches to design, optimize, and verify networked systems.
