Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Frank Bomarius

Frank Bomarius studied Computer Science with a minor in Electrical Engineering at the University of Kaiserslautern and received his German Diplom degree in 1986. He then worked as a researcher at the Department of Computer Science and obtained his PhD as Dr. rer. nat. in Computer Science in the area of distributed object-oriented programming in 1991.

After that he worked for about 1.5 years at the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Kaiserslautern in the area of Multi-Agent Systems.

In 1993, he moved to Tecmath GmbH as a software developer and group leader. There he developed software for measurement data analyses to determine the lifespan of components in the automotive area and designed the transition from monolithic software to middleware technology.

In 1996, Frank Bomarius became a department head at the newly founded Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering. At the beginning of 2000, he was appointed deputy institute director.

Since 2004, Frank Bomarius has held a professorship at the Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences in the Department of Applied Engineering Sciences. There he teaches various Computer Science subjects in the study programs Mechatronics and Information Technology.

At Fraunhofer IESE, Prof. Bomarius has dealt in the past with the topics Smart Home and Assisted Living. In recent years, he has been involved with information technology issues regarding smart energy management in the context of the energy transition. In funding projects, he works on issues regarding the design of the ICT infrastructure for Smart Grids; selected topics include Cross-Energy Management (cross-sector integration), Data Security, and Resilience.

Prof. Bomarius is a member of the German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI)) and of the VDE (Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies). He is actively involved in the BDI (Federation of German Industries) working group Internet of Energy and in the BITKOM (Federal Association for Information Technology) working group SmartGrids.
