Curriculum vitae Prof. Dr. Paul Müller
Before studying mathematics, information-technology, and economics at the University of Bochum, Paul Müller worked as an engineer for SEL (Alcatel) with a focus on telecommunication.
He started his scientific career as a researcher at the University of Tübingen where he developed a large computer-based statistical information system in 1975. In 1981 he joined the Federal Statistical Office of Germany in Wiesbaden, where he was responsible for the further development and implementation of this statistical system. Furthermore, he designed and implemented several statistical software packages during his time there. 1982 he started working with the University of Ulm where he earned his doctoral degree in mathematics in 1983. Thereafter, he was responsible for various research projects and the development of a state-wide computer network.
In 1995 he accepted an offer from the University of Kaiserslautern on a full professor position in the department of computer science in conjunction with heading the university's central computing department.
His Integrated Communications Systems Lab (ICSY) is aiming at the development of services to implement integrated communication within heterogeneous environments especially in the context of the emerging discussion about Future Internet. This is achieved by using service-oriented architectures (SOA), Grid technology, and communication middleware within a variety of application scenarios ranging from personal communication (multimedia) to ubiquitous computing.
