This page is maintained for the historian scholar and computer scientists interested in the history of our computer science department at UdS.

Currently there are two entries: a short history of the department (link) and a listing of all previous – now retired – senior academic staff, i.e. professors and junior faculty.

We adhered to the rule that for every entry they either remained here until their retirement or until their untimely passing away, while still legally with us.

That is we do not list the staff, who followed a “Ruf” to another university or academic institution, where they will be recorded.

The listing of our previous academic staff lists our emeriti in alphabetical order with a personal website: this website is divided into a short summary, edited by ourselves and a link to a personal website maintained by the owner of this site. This personal site contains historical documents, publication lists and other material related to the history of our department.
