    Abstract

    Research in telecommunications is a rapid growing and fast changing field. The combination of various technologies and methods has created interdisciplinary research groups with engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians and physicists working together. All these academics would like to have one commen starting point for their field. This also helps to stay in touch with the worldwide community and delivers structured information from around the world suited to our individual needs.

    First we have to locate all the teams at many different departments. A structured information platform is required where the different players can retrieve the data in a particular way. At the moment there are nine main categories plus additional information about the conception and the work.

    All useful online resourses should be integrated (bottom-up) like sites of research institutes, personal homepages and / or publications lists. Up to date information like addresses, ongoing projects and conferences can also be offered.

    In online archives you find e-/preprints and other documents. But each discipline uses its own hierachical classification scheme. So further efforts will deal with concordance schemata as well as learning material.
