Organization and Contact

The Digital Science Center (DiSC) is an interfaculty organizational unit with its own staff and resources. Additionally, it classifies as a Research Area and therefore fulfils a double role. The DiSC is firmly embedded in the university's research system consisting of Research Areas, Research Platforms, and Research Centers. It has thus far established a formal affiliation with the Research Center Digital Humanities, which has significant overlaps with the DiSC in terms of subject matter and participating researchers.

Please note: The DiSC is not a service provider. If you need IT services or technical support (i.e. to set up a server or a database), please contact the Information Technology Services (ZID). If you want to learn more about high-performance computing, you will find detailed information on the website of the Research Area Scientific Computing.

The DiSC Advisory Board must be convened once per semester to debate internal matters. It is a formal body of consultation established pursuant to §11(2) organization plan, consisting of all DiSC employees with a long-term contract as well as student representatives.

To include external perspectives from the Rectorate and the faculties, an informal Communication and Advisory Board was also established.
