Innovation has a strong tradition in Chemnitz. The foundations for the close link between engineering, science and culture in the south-west of Saxony, which still has a determining influence on study and research at the Chemnitz University of Technology, go back to the 16th century. What is now Chemnitz University of Technology had its foundation with the establishment of the Royal Mercantile College (Königliche Gewerbschule) in 1836, which catered to the region's demand for a well-trained workforce.
The Professorship Distributed and Self-organizing Systems (VSR) started its work in Oct 2007, when Prof. Gaedke from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) (at the IT-Management and Web Engineering Research Group, University of Karlsruhe) was appointed. The VSR is one of 14 professorships in the department of Computer Science at the Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany.
