Welcome to Computer Science 7 (Computer Networks and Communication Systems)

The group has a detailed expertise in protocols and architectures of communication systems and the analysis of their Quality-of-Service (QoS). Quality-of-Service is an umbrella covering aspects such as performance measures (e.g. throughput of a network, system response time, loss rate, etc.) and dependability measures (e.g. reliability of a network, availability of a server system, etc.) but also real time, safety, security, energy, and economics. For this purpose we apply various kinds of modeling, simulation, analysis, testing and measurements and we also develop specialized tools. Applications areas are: vehicular communications, smart energy systems (Smart Grid), and industrial communications.

The teaching curriculum covers fundamental aspects in communications (e.g. “Computer Communication”) and modeling (e.g. “Simulation and Modeling”) and also an advanced aspects such as “Vehicular Communications” or “Smart Grid”. Find more information here.


The ChargingLedger project received an EXIST start-up grant from the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy via the i7 Chair. The aim of the start-up is to offer and commercialize smart charging as a service to grid operators or energy suppliers through data-driven optimization. The project runs i...

At the FAU Silicon Valley Spring School, the i7 Chair was represented in Silicon Valley from March 21-29 and gained interesting insights into the startup scene. In addition to lectures by experts and startups such as Affinity, Arevea, EyeQue or MyndScape, the focus was on "networking". In addition, ...

Im Rahmen der Lehrveranstaltung Vernetzte Mobilität und autonomes Fahren haben die Studenten am 24.01.2019 an einem Workshop am Zollhof in Nürnberg teilgenommen. Nach einer regulären Vorlesung in den Räumlichkeiten mit Gründeratmosphäre konnten die Studenten in vier Gruppen eigene Ideen im Bereich d...

At the recent Winter Simulation Conference 2018 in Gothenburg (Schweden) CS7 published three contributions. Dr. Anatoli Djanatliev was a part of the track-coordination and program committee and presented a panel paper focusing on hybrid simulation. Dr. Peter Bazan published a paper about a mobility ...
