During lecture time, we have our Lunchtime Seminar each Tuesday from 12.15-12.45. During this seminars, researchers of the Department or invited guest provide us with insights into their research.

Datesort ascending Title Abstract
21.11.2017 Lunchtime Seminar - Getrost vergessen

Intentional forgetting is a tandem project of the University of Münster with the disciplines Organisational & Business Psychology (Guido Hertel) and Information Systems (Jörg Becker) which focuses on studies on motivational factors that can interfere or promote intentional forgetting in organizations. Intentional forgetting is operationalized by the extent of the utilization of information systems. Information systems provide users with relevant information. The research is about the... more

14.11.2017 Lunchtime Seminar - Development of an information platform for young women for professional and academic orientation in IT-related professions (Digital Me)

Digital Me aims to provide women with a browser-based and target group-specific offer for the IT-related professions. In a virtual world environment, the participants aged 15 to 17 can find information and decision-making aids as well as games. In the end they know the content and career opportunities in selected IT professions so that they can consciously chose their studies and professions. In this way, Digital Me strives for a higher participation of young women in occupations with IT... more

24.10.2017 Lunchtime Seminar - Liner Shipping Single Service Design Problem with Arrival Time Service Levels

Jun.-Prof. Dr. Kevin Tierney, seit 2014 Juniorprofessor an der Universität Paderborn, Department Wirtschaftsinformatik, wird im Rahmen der Sitzung der Berufungskommission für die vorgezogene Wiederbesetzung des LS WI und Logistik, Prof. Hellingrath, referieren.

17.10.2017 Lunchtime Seminar - Gender Equality Plan for the Department of Information Systems at the University of Muenster

Since June 2016 and until May 2019 the Department of Information Systems at the University of Muenster participates in the EQUAL-IST (“Gender Equality Plans for Information Sciences and Technology Research Institutions”) international project funded by the EU (European Union) Horizon 2020 Framework Programme. The project goal is to introduce structural changes in the seven participating Information Sciences and... more

10.10.2017 Lunchtime Seminar - What types of techniques have been applied in process mining?

Although process mining can no longer be considered a really new research area, it still has many opportunities and challenges, as the solutions presented are still weak compared to real-world needs. Process mining can be defined as a research discipline between “machine learning and data mining” on the one hand and “process modeling and analysis” on the other hand. However, how much machine learning has actually been applied in process mining? What about computational intelligence... more

25.07.2017 Lunchtime Seminar - Conceptual Model for Data Warehouse Systems

Jörg presents a conceptual model as basis for BI systems. Many companies suffer from inconsistent data in their data warehouse systems, and quite often, there is more than one of these in a company installed. Every new requirement of a department in a company concerning aggregated data results in a new report the IT department builds fulfilling these requirements. What we observe are hundreds of dimension tables and thousands of facts tables in different systems (Cognos, SAP SD, SAP CRM, SAP... more

18.07.2017 Lunchtime Seminar - Business Apps with MAML: A Model-Driven Approach to Process-Oriented Mobile App Development

Business apps are used by non-technical users in everyday work routines. However, the creation of apps still follows traditional software development practices and is exclusively performed by software developers that need to centrally collect requirements and domain knowledge. Moreover, few modeling approaches focus on platform-agnostic representations of mobile apps. Recent advances such as textual domain-specific languages for cross-platform app generation reduce development efforts, but... more

11.07.2017 Lunchtime Seminar - Computational Semiotics and The Semiotic Machine – A Primer

Abstract: Electronic Digital Computers have been the driving force of most technological advances worldwide, for over 40 years now. Despite the huge advances afforded and the high technological content embedded in them, digital processing has still been performed, chiefly, in a von Neumann manner. And even if we consider the foremost advanced hardware and software approaches, namely parallel platforms and intelligent algorithms, respectively, nowadays computers still have a... more

04.07.2017 Lunchtime Seminar - What makes technology-driven innovation disruptive? The role of interpretive discontinuity

A well-known yet poorly understood phenomenon of radical innovations is that their disruptive potential is frequently missed initially, but appears entirely self-evident with hindsight. We name this phenomenon “interpretive discontinuity”. We propose to consider disruption akin to a Kuhnian revolution. By demonstrating direct parallels between paradigm shifts in scientific fields and technology-induced industry disruptions, we show that disruption is a shift in worldview that fundamentally... more

27.06.2017 Lunchtime Seminar - IT design as a vanishing and foregrounding performance: from immersive to open virtual learning environment

What are the manoeuvres through which designers seek to address opposition and rally strategic actors? We draw on an ethnographic work conducted within a start-up where we have traced the design of a 3D virtual learning environment, using game technologies, intended for geologists. In analysing the data, we identify four episodes in the design of a virtual learning environment: imagining the software; mapping ideologies; designing affordances; and enacting the infrastructure. Crucially, the... more
