Section Information Systems (IS)

The section IS studies subjects related to the design, realization, analysis and optimization of information systems.

IS comprises two chairs

Architecture of Information Systems

The chair Architecture of Information Systems (AIS) investigates methods, techniques, and tools for the design and analysis process-aware information systems. In other words, systems that support business processes in organizations. AIS tries to model and analyze the business processes and the organizations they support.

Web Engineering

The chair Web Engineering (WE) focuses on three aspects of data access and management: management of semi-structured and semantically linked data,data mining, and personalization and adaptive information delivery.

The chair studies the structure of information systems (architecture, datastructures) as well as the possible ways to store the information to make it more accessible for users. Hidden connections are detected through datamining; meaningful links are made interpretable for computers using the Semantic Web. Personalization and adaptivity improve the user experience of information sources.
