Remark(s)

The lecture Principles of Distributed Systems will be offered by the external lecturer Dr. Markus Esch (senior researcher in Fraunhofer FKIE) in cooperation with the Institute of Computer Science 4 (Prof. Dr. Peter Martini). Under the title "Data Communication and Internet Technology" it is also offered in the study program of B-IT Media Informatics.

Master students for the Principles of Distributed Systems lecture are requested to participate in the lecture according to the following rules:

  • Visit the introductory lecture on Nov 03, 2015
  • The three lecture weeks from Nov 10 to Nov 24, 2015 may be skipped by PDS participants
