IWR - Where Methods Meet Applications

The IWR is an interdisciplinary research center for scientific computing which builds bridges across a multitude of disciplines. The center promotes mathematical and computational methods in science, engineering and the humanities. Currently it comprises more than 50 research teams from various faculties. About 500 scientists work together in interdisciplinary cooperation projects. In addition to educating the next generation of excellent scientists, the IWR also focuses on advancing international research networks. [More...]

Jörg Langowski (1955 - 2017)

The Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing is deeply saddened by the news of
Jörg Langowski’s passing. We have lost an exceptional scientist, treasured colleague
and dear friend.

Our deepest sympathies go out to his family during this difficult time.
