The Computer Networks Group (NET) in the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Göttingen was founded in April 2007, performing researches on networks architectures, protocols and applications covering the design, modeling, implementation, evaluation and verification of Internet Quality of Service (QoS) and middlebox control mechanisms, distributed systems, cloud computing, multimedia services and peer-to-peer technologies, mobile networks beyond 3G, social networks and other emerging networked systems and technologies. Three postdoc research fellows, ten Ph.D. researchers as well as several master and bachelor students are working towards more reliable, secure and scalable networked systems, applications as well as big data and social network analysis under the supervision of Prof. Xiaoming Fu.
