The Communication Systems Research Group CSG at the Computer Science Department (Institut für Informatik, IFI) of the University of Zurich, UZH, Switzerland was founded in September 2004.

CSG's key mission is to establish excellent research in communications, addressing communication mechanisms for charging, accounting, mobility, security, while considering Telecommunication economics, network management, and highly-decentralized systems as major pillars of today's communications in the Internet. Secondly, the CSG is committed to provide a full and up-to-date teaching curriculum on networks and communications for undergraduate and graduate students, partly in conjunction with other groups at IFI.


The research group includes about a dozen people (Ph.D. Students, Senior Researchers, and PostDocs) and works in a number of highly relevant communication research areas, such as charging and accounting for services and applications, cloud supporting services, economic network management, underlay-to-overlay cooperation, peer-to-peer systems, and monitoring.

CSG at CeBIT 2016

UZH is proud to present Coinblesk at CeBIT 2016, an app developed at CSG@IfI enabling a safe and fast mobile payment method that works using NFC contactless technology – no swiping, signing, or PIN necessary. Coinblesk users can make Bitcoin payments within seconds using their Android smartphones, and visitors at CeBIT can experience how easy it is to carry out Bitcoin transactions, whether from person-to-person or between buyer and seller.

For your visit at CeBIT 2016 in Hannover, Germany, March 14-18, 2016, please consider to stop by in Hall 6 at Booth B30-307 labelled "University of Zurich", which is part of the Swiss Pavilion of CeBIT's 2016 Partner Country Switzerland.
