Abstract

Cooperation Support Systems, respectively CSCW-Systems, increasingly offer standardized interfaces to allow their integration into university-wide IT infrastructures. However, several disciplines (e.g. engineering and medical science) require the use and seamless integration of additional applications to meet researchers’ requirements and support collaboration in a sustainable manner. This articles outlines the possibilities to integrate high-tech laboratories into existing IT infrastructures to strengthen the exchange of information among teaching, research, and industry. Since, laboratory components are usually characterized by proprietary interfaces, we replaced these manufacturer-specific interfaces and protocols by a service-oriented architecture for laboratories. Therefore, functionalities of laboratory components will be encapsulated as a service and made accessible by Linux Field-Bus Couplers. The modularization of the laboratory allows the connection to the world of e-learning documents. This article highlights the symbiosis between research in engineering and teaching at universities. The authors explain in the article that not only the research can take a significant influence on teaching, but also vice versa, the teaching is a part of the later researches in laboratories.
