Since 1998, Prof. Kolchanov [Institute of Cytology and Genetics (SB RAS), Novosibirsk] and Prof. Hofestädt (Bielefeld University) have been organizing bilateral and international summer schools, workshops and conferences (notably, the biannual conference, Bioinformatics of Genome Regulation and Structure in Novosibirsk since 1998). Based on this cooperation, the German/Russian Network of Computational Systems Biology (vwv.imbio.de/forschung/) was established in 2005. The network has been organized to facilitate collaborative investigation and education in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology between German and Russian researchers. The interlinking research topic was Analysis and simulation of biomolecular systems and processes. The main goal of this cooperation was knowledge-transfer and the initiation of bilateral projects. Furthermore, this network has provided a platform for educational programs, exchange of young researchers, e-learning, seminars, workshops and summer school programs. The network is supported by the German Ministry of Science (BMBF) and the Russian Ministry of Science and as of 2007 it has become a sub-network of German/Russian Network Biotechnology (Vvw.bis-rus.com). The most important goal of our network is to bring together young scientists and students from both countries to initiate new projects and startups. Therefore, since 2008 we have organized a regular German/Russian annual summer school in Russia and Germany. The overall research topic of all these activities was called Integrative Bioinformatics (IB). Jointly, we have organized the first Integrative Bioinformatics conference in 2005 in Bielefeld and also founded the online Journal of Integrative Bioinformatics (http://journal.imbio.de/). The next annual IB conference will take place in the Netherlands in 2011 and all accepted papers will be published again by the JIB. The startup company PBsoft (http://www.pbiosoft.com/), was founded in Novosibirsk in 2007. This company develops new computational technologies in bioinformatics and systems biology (ANDvisio, ANDcell). To further facilitate the development of bilateral projects, the network partners have recently founded a Russian/German Research Center for Integrative Biology and Computation (RCIBC) in Novosibirsk 2010. This center will focus on the analysis of genetic control of metabolic networks, which is a backbone of Systems and Synthetic Biology.
This book collects 63 revised, full-papers contributed to a research project on the "General Theory of Information Transfer and Combinatorics" that was hosted from 2001-2004 at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZIF) of Bielefeld University and several incorporated meetings. Topics covered include probabilistic models, cryptology, pseudo random sequences, quantum models, pattern discovery, language evolution, and network coding.

Projektdidaktik und Projektunterricht führen in den Regelschulen trotz einer gewissen Verbreitung zum grossen Teil immer noch ein randständiges oder wenig reflektiertes Dasein. Wie lässt sich das innovative und demokratiepädagogische Potenzial der Projektdidaktik begründen, weiter entwickeln und implementieren? Wie kann Projektunterricht gelingen und das Schulsystem durch eine &#8222;Projektkultur&#8220; im Blick auf eine moderne Schule in der Demokratie gestalten? Aus den langjährigen Erfahrungen mit fest verankertem Projektunterricht am Oberstufen-Kolleg an der Universität Bielefeld und auf der Basis der systematischen Analyse einer Dissertation vermittelt der Autor einen aktuellen Überblick über Standort, Möglichkeiten und Strukturen der Projektdidaktik. Mit einem differenzierten Methodensetting werden die zentralen Aspekte der Projektdidaktik in Auseinandersetzung mit der erziehungswissenschaftlichen Literatur dargestellt und für die Umsetzung in die Praxis aufbereitet. Aus der bildungshistorischen Analyse der Konzept- und Praxisgeschichte (letztere ein Novum) von Projektunterricht und Projektdidaktik in der BRD gewinnt die Analyse ihren Standort, von dem aus sie einen praxistauglichen Begriff entwickelt und in eine umfassende Methodik einbettet. Die Untersuchung bestimmt das Verhältnis von Lehrgang und Projekt, konkretisiert ihre komplementäre Verbindung am Beispiel des Fachs Geschichte und stellt eine mögliche vom Lehrgang zu unterscheidende Bewertungspraxis von Projekten vor. Zentral ist dann die Analyse der Organisationsfrage, die für einen gelingenden Projektunterricht die Etablierung einer &#8222;Projektkultur&#8220; fordert und am durchgeführten Beispiel Oberstufen-Kolleg und an einer empirischen Untersuchung an sechs Regelschulen erläutert. Für den Transfer in das Regelschulsystem werden Formen und Möglichkeiten erprobter Implementierung entwickelt. Das Buch wendet sich an LehrerInnen, StudentInnen, ErziehungswissenschaftlerInnen und FortbildnerInnen und eignet sich für die theoretische Auseinandersetzung mit Projektdidaktik, für die praktische Einführung, Weiterentwicklung und organisatorische Verankerung von Projektunterricht in der einzelnen Schule ebenso wie für die Lehrerfortbildung in diesem Bereich.
Devoted to information security, this volume begins with a short course on cryptography, mainly based on lectures given by Rudolf Ahlswede at the University of Bielefeld in the mid 1990s. It was the second of his cycle of lectures on information theory which opened with an introductory course on basic coding theorems, as covered in Volume 1 of this series. In this third volume, Shannon&#8217;s historical work on secrecy systems is detailed, followed by an introduction to an information-theoretic model of wiretap channels, and such important concepts as homophonic coding and authentication. Once the theoretical arguments have been presented, comprehensive technical details of AES are given. Furthermore, a short introduction to the history of public-key cryptology, RSA and El Gamal cryptosystems is provided, followed by a look at the basic theory of elliptic curves, and algorithms for efficient addition in elliptic curves. Lastly, the important topic of &#8220;oblivious transfer&#8221; is discussed, which is strongly connected to the privacy problem in communication. Today, the importance of this problem is rapidly increasing, and further research and practical realizations are greatly anticipated. This is the third of several volumes serving as the collected documentation of Rudolf Ahlswede&#8217;s lectures on information theory. Each volume includes comments from an invited well-known expert. In the supplement to the present volume, Rüdiger Reischuk contributes his insights. Classical information processing concerns the main tasks of gaining knowledge and the storage, transmission and hiding of data. The first task is the prime goal of Statistics. For transmission and hiding data, Shannon developed an impressive mathematical theory called Information Theory, which he based on probabilistic models. The theory largely involves the concept of codes with small error probabilities in spite of noise in the transmission, which is modeled by channels. The lectures presented in this work are suitable for graduate students in Mathematics, and also for those working in Theoretical Computer Science, Physics, and Electrical Engineering with a background in basic Mathematics. The lectures can be used as the basis for courses or to supplement courses in many ways. Ph.D. students will also find research problems, often with conjectures, that offer potential subjects for a thesis. More advanced researchers may find questions which form the basis of entire research programs.
The volume makes available to English readers an important ongoing discussion centred in Germany but having clear connections with international developments in historiography. European History Quarterly The essay offers an excellent and nuanced discussion of comparative history's fundamental assumptions and approaches, its strengths and weaknesses, its possibilities and limits...Scholars or students looking to refresh their understanding of the methods and challenges of comparative history and to learn how German historians discuss transnational approaches will find much to appreciate in this collection, which is particularly well suited to the needs of graduate seminars. If this book helps end the overblown and sometimes petty arguments over which method will reign supreme and helps us take advantage of the obvious benefits of each approach, Haupt and Kocka will have done us a great service. Canadian Journal of History/Annalees canadiennes d'histoire Since the 1970s West German historiography has been one of the main arenas of international comparative history. It has produced important empirical studies particularly in social history as well as methodological and theoretical reflections on comparative history. During the last twenty years however, this approach has felt pressure from two sources: cultural historical approaches, which stress microhistory and the construction of cultural transfer on the one hand, global history and transnational approaches with emphasis on connected history on the other. This volume introduces the reader to some of the major methodological debates and to recent empirical research of German historians, who do comparative and transnational work. Heinz-Gerhard Haupt is currently Professor of European History at the European University Institute. Previously, he was at the Universities of Bremen (1974-93), Halle (1993-98), and Bielefeld (1998-2004). He has been a Visiting Professor at the École des Hautes Études, Paris, University of Lyon II, and Columbia University and a Fellow at Princeton University. His publications in English include The Petite Bourgeoisie in Europe 1780-1914: Enterprise, Family and Independence (with G.Crossick, Routledge, 1995) and Europe in 1848: Revolution and Reform (edited with D. Dowe, D. Langewiesche, J. Sperber, 2001). Jürgen Kocka is currently Professor for the History of the Industrial World at the Free University of Berlin, Research Professor at the Social Science Research Center Berlin and, regularly, a Visiting Professor at the University of California Los Angeles. Between 1973 and 1988 he taught in the University of Bielefeld. He has published widely in the field of modern history of Europe. His publications in the English language include Facing Total War. German Society 1914-1918 (Berg, 1984) and Industrial Culture and Bourgeois Society. Business, Labor, and Bureaucracy in Modern Germany (Berghahn, 1999).
