Institute of Information Systems (IFIS)

The Institute of Information Systems (IFIS) is one of the Institutes of Computer Science at University of Lübeck and was established by Prof. Dr. Volker Linnemann in 1993 as the first Computer Science Institute at the University of Lübeck. Since October 2014, the institute is headed by Prof. Dr. Ralf Möller.

IFIS is concerned with the representation, storage, and retrieval of any kind of data for building information systems. Main research activities are centered around logical and probabilistical foundations of data modeling, efficient storage and retrieval of data, development of inference and query answering techniques for huge amounts of data as well as the automatic generation of data representations, e.g., from large networks such as the Web.
