Dear Colleagues,
yes, indeed: the German term is "Informatik". "Computerwissenschaft" isn't widely used, if at all.

Querying the German Wikipedia for "Computerwissenschaft," 
one is re-directed to Informatik.
The complicated semantics of the field has been touched by 
Jörg Desel in "Das ist Informatik"
(Berlin etc.: Springer, 2001, 3-5). Desel traces the origin 
of the name informatics back to 1957.
It was allegedly used by Philippe Dreyfus in France as early 
as 1962. Apart from Hans Wellisch's
1972 article, there is an ERIC document by Gordon Cook from 
1976 available online at
http://www.eric.ed.gov/ERICWebPortal/contentdelivery/servlet/ERICServlet?accno=ED146919

Best regards, Hartmut
