A project will be shown which handles one of the most dynamic information types: personal information like addresses, telephone-numbers, areas of research. There are many solutions set up during the past years to handle these information with the aim to increase information-interchance between scientists. But all of these systems base on centralized databases. The project presented bases on a decentralized, distributed information-source. For this there are special metadata implemented into the web-homepages of the scientists, who are willing to be part of this information-system. This allows the scientists to hold the control on their data and update it as easy as possible. No centralized datapool is built (besides of a cache). A first working implementation of this service of the IuK will be shown.
