The Distributed Virtual Reality (DVR) section is part of the Institute of Distributed Systems in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. It is headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gabriele von Voigt and additionally represented by the Research Manager Dipl.-Inform. Hinrich Tobaben. Most employees are funded by grants from various research projects.
The research topics are in the range of complex Distributed Systems. From the beginning the topic High Performance Computing (HPC) was a subject of Prof. von Voigt. Research on Virtual Reality, however, has become less important for the group in recent years and is currently not being actively addressed. Current areas of work are:
- High Performance Computing (HPC)
- Management of Complex IT Infrastructures
- Homomorphic Cryptography
The research results are used to optimize the architecture, the safety and operation of distributed applications in a variety of domains.
