Welcome to the database systems research group at Heidelberg University. The group, led by Prof. Dr. Michael Gertz, conducts fundamental and cutting edge research in databases and information systems, scientific data management, data mining, text mining, and information retrieval. Major current research topics include

  • Geospatial and spatio-temporal data management
  • Spatial and spatio-temporal data mining
  • Integration of scientific data
  • Processing and mining data/text streams
  • Text mining
  • Temporal information extraction and retrieval

The group offers several classes, seminars, and practicals at the introductory and advanced level. A complete list of courses can be found here.

Students interested in joining the group for a bachelor or master thesis or some interesting research project (introductory or advanced practical) can find some more information here.

Important note for international students interested in an internship: The group does not take any more international students for an internship for the academic year 2017. Emails asking for an internship for that time period are very likely to remain unanswered.
