The Georg-August-Universität Göttingen is one of the 9 German elite universities elected in 2007 by the German federal government for special funding. The University was founded in 1737 with an inherent commitment to the critical spirit of the Enlightenment. Today, more than 24,000 students are studying 130 programs of study offered by the 13 faculties of the University. The University staff comprises more than 13,000 employees (researchers and staff). The Institute of Computer Science at the University is responsible for research and teaching in computer science, providing the University with bachelor, master and PhD programs in the field of Computer Science and Computational Sciences. In Göttingen, professors from various disciplines work together on a common theme of research: computer science and its uses in communication systems.
The Institute for Computer Science has extensive collaborations and contacts with industry and academia such as NOKIA, Ericsson, Motorola, German Telecom, Lucent, Siemens, NEC, Alcatel, Nortel, NTT DoCoMo, Panasonic, Samsung, DLR, Fraunhofer FOKUS, France Telecom, Telefonica, BT, and so on. The Institute has been very active in standardisation during the past 20 years, in particular in ETSI, IETF and ITU. The focus of the research in the Software Engineering for Distributed Systems Group at the Institute of Computer Science, headed by Prof. Dr. J. Grabowski, is quality assurance. This includes automatic test generation from models and also the generation of models from traces by means of learning techniques. The group is very active in the development and standardization of the testing languages TTCN-3 and UML testing profile.
