Max Planck Institute for Informatics

The Max Planck Institute for Informatics (MPII) is a part of the Max Planck Society, Germany's leading research organization. MPII is devoted to cutting-edge research in informatics with a focus on algorithms and their applications in a broad sense. Our research ranges from foundations (algorithms and complexity, programming logics) to a variety of application domains (computer graphics, geometric computation, constraint solving, program verification, databases and information systems, and computational biology/bioinformatics).

  • On the fundamental research side, this involves first-class research on new algorithms.
  • The algorithmic work for applications encompasses the integration of new algorithms into full-fledged systems and concrete application scenarios that are of high practical relevance. This involves the implementation of comprehensive software platforms and their experimental evaluation in application settings.
  • We provide a stimulating environment for junior researchers.

Our goal is to have impact through publications, software and people alike.
