German IFIP Advisory Board

The German IFIP Advisory Board (founded and operated by GI and VDE-ITG) organises the German IFIP activities and links IFIP's work with the German scientific and technical community.
Meeting twice a year and also communicating intensively in between the Advisory Board is one of the anchors IFIP needs to tie into local cultures, requirements, and visions.
