The KuVS special interest group (Fachausschuss/Fachgruppe “Kommunikation und Verteilte Systeme” (KuVS)) is a common platform for researchers, developers and users of science and technologies related to communication and distributed systems in modern infrastructures. The interest group is anchored both in the German Computer Science society (Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI)) and in the Information Technology society (Informationstechnische Gesellschaft im VDE (ITG)).
The special interest group has more than 1000 members from academia, research, industry and aplication fields.
