Current information about the GSG in times of COVID-19

General information

The joint system group of the computer science dept. and b-it is responsible for the basic technical infrastructure that carries all IT processes in our institutes. Failures in this infrastructure can quickly affect many or even all our scientists and students. To minimize the risk of loosing more or even all our IT staff members if only one of us gets ill, we separated everyone of us from now on, to make sure that - should problems arise - we are still able to maintain our infrastructure services.

This contingency plan has been implemented since Wednesday, March 18.. From that day on we will only provide a basic, minimal attendance duty for you. Nevertheless, please only take direct contact in an emergency! We are still available to you as usual via Email or by phone. Please understand that the physical absence of most of our staff members will result in higher reaction times for all our duties that require physical presence.
