19.01.2016 Dr. Alexander Simons, Dr. Markus Weinmann, Dr. Stefan Fleischer, Isabell Wohlgenannt: Sid Meier’s Civilization: Can this video game predict job performance?

Civilization is a popular series of turn-based strategy video games. The game is broad, so it confronts players with high complexity. Dealing with this complexity requires good analytical skills (e.g., organization and planning), but in the multiplayer mode, interpersonal skills (e.g., negotiation and communication) are likewise important. These and similar skills are also relevant in the job market, especially for managerial positions, so the question arises whether Civilization can predict... more

15.12.2015 Lunchtime Seminar

Future electrical power systems will be composed of large collections of autonomous components. Sensors and actuators, aware of their environment, with the ability to communicate freely, will have to organize themselves in order to perform the actions and services that are required for a reliable and robust power supply. Monitoring and efficiently operating such a system is a challenging task for the underlying information and communication (ICT) infrastructure as well as the system’s “... more

24.11.2015 Lunchtime Seminar

Predictive modeling approaches in business process management provide a way to streamline operational business processes. For instance, they can warn decision-makers about undesirable events that are likely to happen in the future, giving the decision-makers an opportunity to intervene. The topic is gaining momentum in process mining, a field of research that has traditionally developed tools to discover business process models from datasets of past process behavior. Predictive modeling... more

07.07.2015 Lunchtime Seminar - Design, Development, and Evaluation of Patient-Centered Health IT Applications

The health care environment is changing. While paternalism was the dominating paradigm for ages, the focus is now shifting to the individual patient and on empowering patients' to take an active role in their own health care. The increasing patient-centeredness reflects also on the health care information systems landscape. We investigate arising challenges from various perspectives including development of patient-centered health IT services as well as evaluation of information provision in... more

With increasing amounts and variety of and access to open data collected in our environment, the distance between those who understand the data observation processes and those who analyse the data increases. This enlarges the risk of carrying out operations that are not meaningful, such as summing temperature values or interpolating coal power plant emissions. To avoid the need for tables with permitted analysis procedure for every phenomenon, we attempt to categorize phenomena first.... more

03.05.2011 Stefan Klein, University of Münster: 20 Years of Electronic Market Research: Looking Backwards Towards the Future

Over the past 20 years the field of electronic markets has seen a considerable proliferation and differen- tiation. This position paper takes the opportunity of the 21st volume of “Electronic Markets” to look back at important developments and insights, suggesting a framework that captures the multiple facets and indeed empirical breadth and depths of this concept. It comprises three perspectives which include the market environment, governance choices by economic actors as well as the... more

12.04.2011 Rainer Böhme, University of Münster: Privacy in Online Social Lending

Online social lending is the Web 2.0’s response to classical bank loans. Borrowers publish credit applications on websites which match them with private investors. We point to a conflict between economic interests and privacy goals in online social lending, empirically analyze the effect of data disclosure on credit conditions, and outline directions towards efficient yet privacy-friendly alternative credit markets.
