At the 4th PhD Workshop in July 2017, the PhD students initiated a “CRC 1114 Dictionary” and started working on definitions of some most prominent concepts and notions used in the specific languages of the various disciplines in the CRC. Particular efforts were made to identify and alleviate misunderstandings emerging from the lack of a common language: The same terms sometimes have different meanings in different disciplines while different terms may be used to denote the same facts. The CRC Dictionary was subsequently launched as a “SCCS Wiki” and presented to all CRC members at the SCCS Days in November 2017. CRC members committed to regularly contributing to the Dictionary, e.g., by adding major concepts and notions from their Colloquium talks. With the constant expansion of the CRC Dictionary, the CRC further intensifies its efforts towards overcoming scientific language barriers and enhancing interdisciplinary communication.

The SCCS Wiki is located at the FU Wiki portal and is accessible to the CRC members only.

To access the SCCS Wiki, you first need to login with your ZEDAT account to register within the system. Once being visible within the portal, the administrators have to add your account to the group of Wiki authors. Please send a request stating your ZEDAT username to tom.doerffel [at] For CRC members without a ZEDAT account, the administrators can create an account only for the Wiki upon your request.

There is a short how-to article which will guide you through the basic steps of creating and editing entries. A link to it is located at the main page. All CRC members are invited to add, edit, or comment on Wiki entries.
