About Us

The “Communication and Distributed Systems” (Kommunikation und Verteilte Systeme, KuVS) special interest group is jointly supported by the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) and the Informationstechnische Gesellschaft im VDE (ITG). KuVS has over 1000 members from teaching and research, from industry and application.

On the occasion of the KuVS 25th anniversary celebration at KiVS Kaiserslautern, Berthold Butscher gave a résumé in the form of a talk (pdf) and, later, in the form of an article in PIK (pdf).
