Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V.
German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI)) is a non-profit organization with about 20,000 members living across the world.
Most of them develop the discipline of informatics by teaching, researching or working in the field of informatics, while others are involved in related business and political areas. The main purposes of this network of professionals are motivate for informatics, develop the scientific discipline and promote the impact informatics has economy, business and society.
And to offer career support by the means of networking.
Members of GI are either individuals, companies or non-governmental organizations. We are proud to be able to claim that our members’ knowledge covers almost everything anyone could wish to know about informatics. Our challenge is to make the best of this broad knowledge base for GI, its members and society as a whole. In times of ever-growing importance and influence of an integrated Europe, GI is increasingly involved in European projects and organizations.
Education and Training
Starting about 40 years ago – at the time when the first informatics departments were being set up in Germany – our first aim was to build up, implement, grow and strengthen the academic discipline.
Times have changed, but our portfolio is still based on this main point. For instance, GI has contributed to the curricula for new bachelor and masters degrees in Germany, as to the official recognition of new courses.
Other important GI activities include raising public awareness of informatics including its benefits and risks.
In addition, our portfolio includes programmes to create early motivation and interest for informatics. Supported by products to develop skills and aided by initiatives for training frameworks. Beside other project-related activities, we do this e.g. by supporting Germany’s informatics competition BWINF, the European Computer Driving Licence ECDL and the Advanced IT Training System AITTS.
GI supports networking between researchers in industry, research institutes and universities by providing more than 100 special interest groups and about 40 regional branches. They can all rely on the same network of knowledge, best practices, skills and experience. Scientific and technical staffs from all types of colleges and research institutions play an active role in GI. All of them are represented in the management committee and the advisory councils.
About 10 % of GI’s members are students. For them, GI offers a network of contacts, information and coaching across many universities. There is an official advisory council looking after their interests.
Our close collaboration is assisted by services. For example, members are consistently well informed by our periodical Informatik Spektrum or by other print and online publications, edited by our interest groups.
Our own publication series LNI (Lecture Notes in Informatics) and access to Digital Libraries like those of the IEEE Computer Society or the new German io-port.net are other parts of our portfolio.
The number of freelance and self-employed IT experts in Germany is growing. Within GI those run an own special interest group. They are represented in the management committee through their own advisory council.
Our cooperation with the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry reaches from blue chip companies developing new architectures and solutions to a broad range of small and medium-sized companies who are adding value to their products by producing or using advanced IT solutions.
The International Requirements Engineering Board (IREB) e. V. is a group of leading Requirements Engineering experts from business, consulting, research, and science. They founded IREB e.V. to jointly standardize the Requirements Engineering education and to finally improve the RE practice. This was the origin for the certification program "Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering" (CPRE).
Since its founding in 2006, IREB has become the world's leading expert body when it comes to certifying professionals in the discipline of Requirements Engineering. Whether business analyst or software engineer, anyone who needs to specify requirements for solutions will find the CPRE certification program the best basis for doing so - more than 76,000 exams and over 60,000 certified professionals in 90 countries speak for themselves.
The latest development of the International Requirements Engineering Board is the "Digital Design Professional" (DDP) certification program. It was elaborated in close exchange with recognized experts from IT, product design and industrial design, and provides the professional basis for designing digital solutions from a holistic perspective. Business, humans and technology are thought of together and the digital is understood as shapeable material.
With this qualification, which has been available as DDP Foundation Level since June 2021, IREB is responding to the current demands for digitalization and digital transformation. DDPs know how to make optimal use of the potential of digital technologies in order to create innovations in a targeted manner.
