Welcome to MEC, the Mobility and Enterprise Computing research group at Clausthal University of Technology.

MEC research group. F.l.t.r.: Julian Teusch, Sophie Dennisen, Fabian Liesenhoff, Dr. Jelena Fiosina, Marie Götz, Prof. Dr. Jörg P. Müller, Sakif Hossain, Stefanie Cronjäger, Rifat Rahman, Christoph Körner, Dr. Jana Görmer-Redding, Oliver Müller, Fatema Tuj Johora, Marc Schlegel, Suhair Ahmed, Awad Mukbil, Nelly Njeck, Sören Schleibaum (missing: Sînziana-Maria Sebe, Carsten Hesselmann).

The main focus of our research is on decentralized information technologies, in particular, multi-agent and peer-to-peer (P2P) systems, methods, architecture, models, tools for decentralized and adaptive management, engineering, and coordination in information systems. We are interested in the development, validation, and application of decentralized, self-organizing techniques in various networked domains, such as Smart Transport and Traffic and Product Lifecycle Management.

The systems we are investigating are composed of autonomous agents that are required to cooperate or coordinate their activities, because they co-exist in a shared environment, depend on shared resources, or pursue common goals.

Core technology competences at MEC are multiagent systems and intelligent agents, P2P computing, protocols, architectures, and middleware for decentralized information management and coordination including cloud and virtualization technologies, model-driven development of business IT systems, and organic / autonomic computing. For more details including current and past projects, we refer to our research page and our publications.

Our teaching activities cover introductory and advanced courses on (distributed) business information systems and technologies, and on multiagent systems. Please consult our teaching page for details - and do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in joining us as a research student or in writing a thesis in our research area!
