Currently, the chair for Algorithm Engineering consists of three research groups:

Algorithm Engineering cycle
Prof. Dr. Kevin Buchin: Algorithm Engineering (Chair)

  • algorithm engineering
  • computational geometry
  • spatial networks
  • algorithms for GIS
  • algorithms for motion planning

Schwefel's function
Prof. Dr. Günter Rudolph: Computational Intelligence

  • Multi-objective Optimization and Industrial Optimization
  • Evolutionary Computation
  • Digital Entertainment Technologies
  • Music Data Analysis
  • Artificial Neural Networks and Fuzzy Systems

Prof. Dr. Johannes Fischer: Algorithmic Foundations and Education in Computer Science

  • algorithm engineering
  • text indexing
  • succinct data structures
  • (lower) secondary computer science education
  • algorithms for Big Data
  • parallel algorithms

Former research groups are:

Prof. Dr. Petra Mutzel: Algorithm Engineering:
now at University of Bonn: Computational Analytics at Bonn University

  • Algorithm Engineering, in particular graph algorithms and data structures
  • Computational Analytics
  • Algorithmic Data Analysis, Graph Mining
  • Combinatorial Optimization (polynomial time and ILP-based)
  • Network Design and Optimization
  • Graph and Network Visualization
  • Analysis of chemical structures and biological networks

Prof. Dr. Sven Rahmann: Bioinformatics
now at Saarland University: Algorithmic Bioinformatics

  • Efficient algorithms for large biological datasets in genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics
  • Analysis of high-throughput sequencing data (e.g., Illumina, Nanopore, etc.)
  • Engineering of hashing algorithms, e.g. multi-way Cuckoo hashing
  • Reconstruction and analysis of complex biological networks, especially protein hypernetworks (protein networks with additional constraints)
  • Algorithmic statistics in bioinformatics and applications of combinatorial optimization in bioinformatics

The chair for Algorithm Engineering was founded in 1985. Professor Hans-Paul Schwefel was head of the chair (called Systemanalyse) until his retirement in 2006, and then by Professor Petra Mutzel until 2019.
