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
01.12.2020 Critical success factors of data management in intra-organizational settings

Data management consists of the planning and execution of policies, practices, and projects that acquire, control, and enhance the value of data. Many organizations approach data management in a holistic manner, focusing on several data assets at once. However, a holistic approach comprising a large data scope and several data decision domains can lead to slow relative progress which can lead to an unwillingness of senior management to adopt and invest in data management. Therefore, it is... more

24.11.2020 Practitioner-centered Assessment of Socio-technical Innovations in Crisis Management: Insights from the DRIVER+ Demonstration Project

The scale and pace of crises pose enormous challenges for the crisis management (CM) community, with new threats emerging all the time. An already complex field must strive to integrate new technologies and methods; cope with a rapidly changing infrastructure; understand evolving risks; be effective across cultural, administrative and national boundaries as well as engage with populations to enhance their resilience. In this context, crisis management innovation must be capable of meeting... more

17.11.2020 Credit default prediction from user-generated text based on deep learning

Dr. Johannes Kriebel will present a project on the use of natural language processing to predict credit risk from user-generated text data on peer-to-peer lending platforms.

09.07.2019 RISE_BPM: Experiences from a 4-Years Horizon 2020 Researcher and Staff Exchange Project

RISE_BPM was the first favourably evaluated project proposal submitted by the University of Münster in cooperation with ERCIS partners within the Horizon 2020 EU funding programme. The RISE_BPM project aimed at networking research institutions and corporate innovators to develop new ideas for Business Process Management (BPM). The project consortium, besides the University of Münster as the coordinator, included partners from Australia, South Korea, Brazil, Austria, Spain, the Netherlands,... more

02.07.2019 Artificial Intelligence is a trending topic in computer science

Autonomous systems rely on AI to make decisions and adapt to changes. What role do security considerations play when designing such systems? This talk will give an overview of the interaction and combination of IT security with artificial intelligence.

25.06.2019 The value of practical and academic partnering – the case of ERCIS & Arvato/Bertelsmann

While digitization and digitalization require substantial organic change (1) and often times M&A (2), partnering represents a 3rd lever for strategy execution. Partners can come from multiple backgrounds. Some working for-profit, such as software vendors, consultants or incubators. Yet there are interesting players from the non-profit arena, such as governmental institutions or universities. Universities among others focus on education but also on research that ideally... more

18.06.2019 Test-Case Generation for Java Programs

Java is still one of the most popular programming languages and widely used to develop enterprise, mobile, and web applications. This talk presents an automated approach to generate unit tests for Java programs. The approach is based on symbolic execution, a popular program analysis technique that is able to explore all execution paths through a program.

04.06.2019 Uniform universities? Output Indicators, Data Capitalism and Steering of Science

The talk describes how commercial companies create operating systems with highly integrated services, which scientists use in every phase of their daily work and which by the way produce data about this work. These data, in turn, are processed by the commercial providers and converted into further products, which are now offered to the science bureaucracy as a tool for recruitment and research planning. The structure and marketing of both the tools for scientists and the controlling tools... more

28.05.2019 Channel Choice Complications: Exploring the multiplex nature of citizens' channel choice

In spite of massive investment and increased adoption of digital services, citizens continue to use traditional channels to interact with public organizations. The channel choice (CC) field of research tries to understand citizens’ interactions with public authorities to make the interaction more efficient and increase citizen satisfaction. However, most studies have been conducted either as surveys of hypothetical services or in experimental settings, leading to a lack of empirical data... more

21.05.2019 Geosimulation modelling

Large-scale spatial systems, such as river catchments, crowds, or land use systems, are difficult to fully analyze empirically. Geosimulation models are built to enable analyses of these systems. On the one hand, geosimulation models help us to better understand the system, because we can 'experiment' with its parameters. On the other hand, geosimulation models are used to make projections of the potential future development of the system under a set of scenarios. Scenario studies are often... more
