The KIT Focus COMMputation addresses the challenges of adequate management and control of complex technical systems by a combined view on communication and computation. Its major objective is to develop a deeper understanding of the potentials and trade-offs of communication and computation in large collections of interconnected systems and to develop new approaches to their design and engineering. The coordination and combination of excellence in research within the KIT will stimulate profound, internationally visible contributions in response to the challenges of increasingly complex technical systems.

By combining the interdisciplinary expertise of researchers in informatics, electrical engineering and economics COMMputation focuses on concepts, architectures, methods, tools, and selected characteristic applications of

  • information processing,
  • communication technology,
  • organisational and service-oriented principles,

in order to guarantee the controllability of complex technical systems and to enable their trustworthy, robust, and efficient operation.
