Your AccountUsually, we will create your computer account a few days before you arrive at the institute. This provides many uses, e.g. unlimited Internet access, various communications services (e-mail, fax, voice mail) as well as general file and print services (for details see Services).
Attached to the institute's official invitation-writing, you should find a little questionnaire which can be used in order to inform us about special needs you may have, e.g. additionally needed software packages. With this writing your new e-mail address is also communicated to you.
Basic information about getting started with the institute's computing infrastructure is provided on a separate sheet in the pack given to you on arrival. If you need further information please visit our online Help Desk (only locally available in the Intranet).
Accounts will be closed 60 days after departure. However, special arrangements may be made to keep an account open for a longer period.
Please note that the use of our network and computing facilities is subject to the policies and regulations normally issued to all employees of the Institute (Nutzungsordnung, German language only).
For any technical matters with your account, please send your requests to .
