Information Science: The new degree program at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences

Digitization contributes to the accumulation of knowledge in immense amounts of data, but often unstructured and widely scattered. Information Scientists bring this knowledge together and make it usable for business and society. The new study program Information Science at the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt (h_da) trains students to become experts in the professional handling of data, information and knowledge. The bachelor and master program starts for the first time in the winter semester 2019/20 and replaces the previous course Information Science. Applications are possible from the 15th of May.

“Since digitization processes and rapid technological changes have a major impact on companies, information scientists also contribute to future and innovation processes,” emphasizes Prof. Dr. med. Kawa Nazemi. He is in charge of the Bachelor’s degree program Information Science. His graduates also qualify for leadership positions in companies, institutions, media organizations, administrations or libraries as well as for research activities. The master’s degree also qualifies for a doctorate. There are perspectives at the Hochschule Darmstadt in the cross-university doctoral program “Applied Computer Science”, in which h_da is involved.

Proceedings of the Collaborative European Research Conference 2019 are now online!

It has taken a while, but now the proceedings of this year’s Collaborative European Research Conference (CERC 2019) are now online on CEUR-WS.org. In particular as co-editor, I am very glad about this, since it lifts the conference in perspective of visibility and scientific establishing on a new level.

The 2019’s proceedings are available under: http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2348/.

To download as zip-file: ftp://sunsite.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/pub/publications/CEUR-WS/Vol-2348.zip.

The multidisciplinary Collaborative European Research Conference (CERC) is an annual event that takes place since 2011 when it was initiated by University partners across Europe. It brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines in order to foster knowledge transfer, inter-disciplinary exchange and collaboration. For more information about the conference, please check the website http://www.cerc-conference.eu.


Update 04/05/2019: I noticed today that the proceedings are now indexed at google scholar and DBLP, which maximizes the scientific visibility of the conference contributions .

Kickoff of the National AVARTIM Project

Today is the kickoff of the national project AVARTIM. The project has to goal of the early recognition of technological trends and the targeted handling of market and technology signals are becoming increasingly important for companies. As part of the project, “AVARTIM” is to be used to develop a software-supported process for recognizing and evaluating trends, market and technology signals in order to sustainably support the process of innovation and technology management. As part of the project, an infrastructure will be set up at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, which is modular and thus able to react quickly to technological changes. The infrastructure to be developed here serves as preliminary research and initial technology both for industrial use by and with the SME partners as well as for the application for joint projects. First of all, participation in the LOEWE funding line 3 of the state of Hessen and subsequently in the tender for LEIT-ICT / Big Data technologies of the EU is aimed at.

More about the project you will find on project description site. The work on the infrastructure as well as the developments are all made on our novel Scitics solution.
